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.
There is no answer at this time.

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 for this dilemma. The reason why I use 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 or we could start at Google
includes 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 definition of "insidious". We also have the option of
going to and just searching for the word "insidious". 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
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
does not have a definition and pronunciation for.
