phraseup*

phraseup* | Vocabulary ELT | Scoop.it

This is a useful site for students who need to improve their writing. Students write a sentence, but prehaps don't know what the possible collocations are so they type the sentence and put an * where the missing word should go. Some of the collocations/suggestions are a bit dubious, but on the whole this is a useful site.

Tiny Texts

Tiny Texts | Vocabulary ELT | Scoop.it

This is a nice little blog with bitesize reading activities for students with clear definitions of phrasal verbs and other lexis so they can do some extra learning outside of class. There is also a "tips for teachers" page which needs a bit of developing, but looks promising.

JustTheWord

JustTheWord | Vocabulary ELT | Scoop.it

Collocations! Arg! This tool should help your students with their written work. They type in a word and it gives them a list of the common collocations and devides them up according to part of speech. It's a very good independent learning tool. 

For the teacher it produces concordances and pretty word clouds, which you can use to liven up your lessons. 

It is meant to have a thesaurus feature, but I couldn't get that to work.

Idioms in pictures and translations

I love, love, love this site. It provides English, Spanish and French translations to idioms. This alone is pretty useful. BUT it also gives visual representatives of idioms. As a teacher who can just about draw a stick-man on the board I have been searching for a site that visually brings to life idioms, and this is it. Thanks from all us teachers who are artistically challenged
