This post is all about a book with word search puzzles for English language learners.
The book provides a fun way to improve your vocabulary. Read on to find out how.
Have you ever used those electronic gadgets that will quickly translate words for you? Or more likely, an app on your phone for the same thing?
They’re certainly useful if you’re in a foreign country and quickly need to find a word. However, as a learning aid, they’re not really suitable.
The reason is quite simple – you get the answer too quickly and forget it just as quickly. Your mind just doesn’t spend enough time thinking about the words.
This is where this new book with word search puzzles for English language learners comes in.
You spend more time thinking about the words and you can remember them a lot longer. This is an obvious advantage when you’re learning vocabulary.
As you can see, the word search puzzle is on the right side and the vocabulary list is on the left side. You can click on the image to see a larger version.
On the right side is the word search puzzle itself and you can find the English words hidden in the puzzle. For those who aren’t familiar with word search puzzles, you have to find the words in the grid. They can be horizontally, vertically or diagonally. When you find a word, use a pen or pencil to make a ring around the word to mark it.
All the time you’re looking for a word, you’re actively thinking about that word and making it easier to remember.
The left side is a table with the English words, with space for the translation of that word in your own native language. The image shows the page of 30 words around the topic of town and city.
Other topics include:
- days and months
- family members
- EU countries
- body parts
- lounge (living room)
- musical instruments
There are over 800 words in total!
The answers are at the end of the book so you can check your answers or get help if you need it.
It is designed for beginners and lower intermediate levels but will be useful and fun for learners of all levels.
The book is very reasonably priced and it available on all Amazon sites. Please click the image or this link to check on the price for your area.
