Within WordSmith, you first sort words based on your understanding, then begin flashcard review, an finally take tests on word lists.
How do I move WordSmith words into the Yes, Maybe and No categories?
WordSmith asks the question: “Do you OWN this word?” (i.e., is it part of your everyday vocabulary?) You can click and drag the word into the appropriate category, or you can click the green, yellow or red buttons to the right of a word to categorize it. After a word has been categorized, you must click it to review the definition and usage before moving it to another category.
How do I get the definition of a word?
Click on the “i” button to the right of a word and a definition flash card will appear. If a word is already categorized, you may bring up the definition flash card by clicking on the word.
What is “Save Sorting”?
The Save Sorting button will save all your work so that if you log out, when you return you can start where you left off.
