I'll try it out again, Nik, and get back. Maybe I did something wrong. Thanks for your feedback.

It'll get better. These things usually do. On another note, I just made the best cup of coffee!
Remy Lamers's comment, June 6, 2013 9:25 AM
I'm Remy and I work at the company that invented and developed Knowble. We think it's great that so many of you appreciate Knowble and making the effort to give feedback.

To date we haven't found a proper method to make phrasal verbs work properly. We do consider adding phrasal verbs, but the sheer endless combinations of verbs, context and meaning make this a very though nut to crack. Also; Knowble is designed as a supplementary learners aid instead of an alternative language course. That's why we focus on what Knowble does best; improving vocabulary by reading news articles.

This free version of Knowble offers a rudimentary pre-test. We have developed specific versions with better pre-tests for our clients, such as publishers. These versions also include target word lists, specific resources and translations from dictionaries (instead of Google translation used in the free version). In the paid version of Knowble teachers can also view the progress of individual students.

Still, we hope that our free version of Knowble will continue to help people improve their English in a pleasant way.

Keep your feedback coming!

The Entire "Google Search Features for Teachers and Students" Guide

The Entire "Google Search Features for Teachers and Students" Guide | Silvia T's Sussex newsletter | Scoop.it

"As educators Google is the backbone of our online activities. Think of how many times you use it to perform a search whenever you are looking for something. Besides  using it for search queries, it is also used as a dictionary, unit and currency converter, calculator, zip code finder and many more. It is great we have all these options all accessible  from a single platform but do all teachers and students know how to use these and other  features Google has to offer them? Well probably some of you are already familiar with many features in this guide but the majority of our students do not. It is our responsibility to teach them the search skills they will definitely need to survive in the 21st century digital world. Isn’t schooling goal revolves around preparing our students  for tomorrow’s jobs ?........"
