Building a vocabulary in English is essential to mastering the language. There are several online flash card programs and books that can help you learn words. The problem with most of these is that you soon forget the words or that you simply learn the words’ equivalent word in your own language but you don’t learn how to use this word naturally.
Praxised.com is built to overcome these weak points. Based on science and what experts know about how the brain learns, Praxised.com teaches you the words you need whether you’re focusing on core vocabulary or university vocabulary.
The program consists of short daily lessons that include listening and writing, skills other programs ignore.
Subscriptions are $10 for six months or $20 per year.
