• Practise daily: the app tests your knowledge, guiding you to the right answers with personalized feedback and hints, including picture clues, definitions, anagrams and audio.

• Get instant visual feedback on spelling, grammar, meaning and word usage. Collect knowledge and experience points with each answer.

• Statistics help you track your progress and show you where you are improving.

• Earn badges for extra effort and learning outcomes.

The app has been developed by Oxford University Press in collaboration with Alphary AG. It supports learning of key words from well-known Oxford English textbooks including English File, Headway, Navigate, and many others. It also provides content packs to help improve your general English vocabulary, including packs for the Academic Word, Business Keywords, Essential Vocabulary, and more.

The app makes use of spaced repetition: words are practised at the point when the learner is likely to forget them. This reinforces learning and helps to put words into long-term memory.

The app’s multilingual dictionary contains translations for English, Arabic, Catalan, Chinese (Orthodox), Chinese (Simplified), Czech, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Korean, Polish, Portuguese (Brazil), Portuguese (Portugal), Russian, Spanish (Latin America), Spanish (Mexico), Spanish (Spain), Thai, Turkish, with more languages coming soon. Full access is available through in-app subscription (see details below). You can also subscribe to a specialist dictionary for studying Business English.
