|WORDREADY® is an online interactive multimedia vocabulary learning application. It is an effective and non-threatening way to learn and practise English vocabulary. It works at the learner's own pace and provided a personalised learning experience. Based on the latest language learning research, we have designed it to meet the needs of both learners and teachers.|
Each learner has their own username and can access WORDREADY from any location (e.g. from home, school, college, work or on the move) using any modern browser (e.g. Firefox). WORDREADY tracks their learning and adapts to how the learner is performing to provide personalised vocabulary practice. It is simple to set up and very low maintenance.
WORDREADY knows how many words learners have met, when they last worked with each word, and how well they know them. Each time a learner uses WORDREADY, it selects the most appropriate set of words for that particular learner at that point in time. It then creates a series of interactive multimedia exercises for them to learn and practise the words. WORDREADY could select new words to be introduced for the first time, or revisit previously met words to consolidate and extend their learning. All words are thoroughly revised and recycled over time to ensure retention.
Teachers, parents, carers, tutors or supervisors can easily see how well learners are progressing.
WORDREADY is an affordable personal vocabulary assistant – it’s what the computer can do extremely well.
|WORDREADY® Young learner is for 5-12 year-olds. It covers the important words for children at those ages and is suitable preparation for all the young learner tests (e.g. Cambridge YLE). WORDREADY is a fun, effective and non-threatening way for children to learn and practise English vocabulary.|

WORDREADY can be used alongside coursebooks and will provide vocabulary support as learners meet new words in their classes. Teachers can also create their own vocabulary lists depending on their needs.
We designed it with the needs of both learners and teachers in mind. If used regularly, WORDREADY ensures that learners remember the words and how to use them. Teachers, parents and carers can easily see how well their young learners are progressing.
We would like to thank the thousands of young learners and their teachers who have used WORDREADY Young learner since 2006. We are now re-designing the application so that it will also run on smartphones and tablets as well as computers (as well as having some interesting new features). In order for us to concentrate on this work and to provide the best possible experience, we have now suspended new subscriptions to WORDREADY Young learner until this work is completed (existing subscribers will be able to use WORDREADY as per usual).
