Spell Up is a new word game and Chrome Experiment that helps learners improve their English using their voice—and a modern browser, of course.
It’s like a virtual spelling bee, with a twist.
Spell Up is both fun and educational.
The goal of the game is for users to correctly spell the words they hear and stack them to build the highest word tower they can...
   - letter by letter,
   - word by word.
The higher the tower gets, the more difficult the word challenges:
They’ll be asked to...
   - pronounce words correctly,
   - solve word jumbles and
   - guess mystery words.

They can earn bonuses and coins to level up faster.

Spell Up works best in Chrome on a computer and on Android phones and tablets. (It also works on iPhones and iPads, but they’ll need to type rather than talk.)
Whether they’re just learning English or they’re already a pro, check it out!

And if you’re a practitioner, I'd encourage you to try it out in your learning environments.

Wordament

Wordament® is a unique and highly addictive word game: a two-minute long word tournament where you compete in real-time, on the same board, against everyone else currently playing. Each board is unique and alternating rounds offer challenges such as two- and three-letter digram tiles and theme* puzzles. You can choose to go for the bonus points, try to find the most words possible or earn scoring bonuses by finding longer words.

Here's a mobile app that allows international game play in real time.  A great voabulary drill and builder and a fine on demand skill builder.

Worth a look for language teachers.

Oxford Owl is a collection of free children’s ebooks for learners ages 3-11. Each ebook has accompanying audio so that learners can choose to read along, or read independently. The books also have activities focusing on reading comprehension and story recall. There are several options for filtering the ebooks including by...
- age,
- book type, and
- by series.
As well as the eBooks visitors will find...
- activities and recommendations for each age group,
- games to print and play, and
- online games with characters from the books and site.
NOTE: Oxford Owl is flash-based. Not ideal at all for a learning environment full of iPads. Luckily, there are solutions. There are several Flash Browsers that you can download for the iPad to view flash content. My current preference is Photon.
