WriteBetter – Learning tool to improve English writing skills

WriteBetter – Learning tool to improve English writing skills | Tools for Teachers & Learners | Scoop.it

WriteBetter is a writing assistant available as a plug-in for Word 2013-2016, Chrome extension, and app for smartphone. This writing tool has three functions: contexts, dictionary, and translation. With contexts, learners can explore many sentences written by native speakers of English to discover how to use words in real contexts; with the dictionary, they can discover meanings, synonyms, antonyms, and expressions related to the word searched; with the translation function, they can explore human-made, contextualised translations in many languages, such as Spanish, Italian, French, among others.

Nik Peachey's insight:

This is a great tool to improve your writing.
