About Oxford English Vocab Trainer

Learning Technologies Awards 2016 – Silver Winner

Build your English vocabulary with the Oxford English Vocabulary Trainer, your personal English tutor from Oxford University Press.

• Choose words to learn: look up words from Oxford’s textbooks or the app's free Basic English Dictionary. (Translations into more than 20 languages are available as part of an in-app subscription - see details below.)

• Build your personal dictionary by selecting words that you need to practise every day.

• Practise daily: test your knowledge and be guided to the right answers with personalized feedback and hints, including picture clues, definitions, anagrams and audio.

• Get visual feedback on spelling, grammar, meaning and naturalness of your word usage. Earn experience points the more you practise.

• Statistics help you track your progress and monitor your improvement.

• Collect awards for extra effort and reaching your vocabulary goals.

• Join a class to share information on your learning progress with your teacher.

• Study key words from well-known Oxford English courses including English Plus, Step Forward, English File, Headway, Navigate, and many others.

Words move into your long-term memory thanks to spaced-repetition technology: the app presents words for practice at the point when you are likely to forget them.

The multilingual dictionary contains translations for English, Arabic, Catalan, Chinese (Traditional), Chinese (Simplified), Czech, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese (Brazil), Portuguese (Portugal), Russian, Spanish (Latin America), Spanish (Mexico), Spanish (Spain), Swahili, Thai, Turkish, with more languages coming soon.

by P####:

My language is not in list, and it requires a choosing.

by X####:

No I don't want to sign in with Facebook. No I don't want to create an account. There's no explanation why I need to do this for an app I only want to use on a single device. Will tell my students not to use it. App deleted.

Hey morons !! What about the people from other languages !! Where are the world's #4 language Hindi !! #7 language Bengali and #9 language Punjabi !! So this app is only for the people from europe and very little people from Asia !! Disgusting app. At least you should have put the English option for general people who don't know those minor languages listed on the app to sign up! Wasted my time.

by E####:

The course is useful but the speed of this app is very slow. I spend a lot of time for learning English. So, I hope you'll improve this app in the near future.
