Hello, please help me. I am learning English, and I have to learn so many new words. I don't have help, and I am looking for a program that can help me. Maybe a web site? I want to be able to submit lists of words I learn in class. A program that is like a tutor and that remembers what I need to learn. I need to learn the sound and spelling and meaning of the words. Most programms I find have no sound, or they only have a few hundred words. Is there a program that can help me, no matter which words I need to learn? Also, my daughter gets spelling word lists in school. I can't help her with that because my English is not good. If a prgram could help both of us, that would be great. It should also not be so expensive, because I can not afford a private teacher, for example.

Hello Rosiewrose, I have recently came across the same dilemma that you are having. I am currently studying for my GRE and I have to learn a large number of words. I'm a very audible learner so I need to be able to properly hear the word before I will be able to learn it. I personally use Answers.com for this dilemma. The reason why I use Answers.com is because it displays the definition clearly, the pronunciation clearly and if needed displays the word translated into a number of languages such as Japanese, Spanish and others. Lets say for example we were going to learn the word "insidious". We have two places to start we could start at Answers.com or we could start at Google.com. Google includes Answers.com results on it's search results. If we do a Google search for the word "insidious" we will notice in the Google Search results on the top right of the page "12,600,000 for insidious [definition]." If we click on the "[definition]" this will bring us to Answers.com definition of "insidious". We also have the option of going to Answers.com and just searching for the word "insidious". Answers.com results will display the dictionary definition, antonyms and other helpful information. On the page we will notice there is a blue bar with the word "Dictionary" right under the bar Answers.com has the word "insidious" broken into syllables as so "in·sid·i·ous (?n-s?d'?-?s)". At the end of the syllables there is a blue icon that looks like a speaker from the side. If this is clicked on it will pronounce the word "insidious" through our speakers or headphone. The site is easy to use and has no flashing ads like some of the other dictionary sites. I have yet to come across a word that Answers.com does not have a definition and pronunciation for. Alex
