VerbaLearn is a site for students to learn vocabulary. The site offers several different ways that students can learn vocabulary. There is a free version and a one time fee Plus version. When you immediately visit a site you will see resources for ACT, SAT, and GRE vocabulary. There is also grade level vocabulary and ESL vocabulary.
VerbaLearn allows user to learn vocabulary at their own pace and on their own time. With the free version you can quiz yourself and participate in standard review, so rather limited. With the Plus version you do get tons of other options. You can record MP3's, watch video flashcards, print flashcards, create crossword puzzles, and complete advanced review to learn key terminology.
VerbaLearn offers teachers and schools the ability to offer the software school wide for $.50 a student as well as classroom licenses. A great feature is that school and community libraries can sign up for the service and get the pro account free for students. VerbaLearn is another site attacking the vocabulary aspect of education and offers some features that other sites don't.
