VocabSushi is a free website that helps students develop their vocabulary by playing games.
As the website explains:
With VocabSushi, flash cards are a thing of the past. The best way to build your vocabulary is not rote memorization. It’s seeing how words are used in everyday language. VocabSushi helps you prepare for the ISEE, SAT, ACT, GRE or other standardized test by teaching you vocab words with real-world, contextual examples found in the daily news. We’re different than any other test preparation option, and here’s how:
Real sentences from the news teach context along with definitions
We scour the daily news from around the U.S. to find actual examples of your vocab words. Read selected sentences or whole articles to build a strong grasp of context.
