When you’re learning English, it’s important to keep your motivation up. As with any task, there may be times when language learning feels a bit monotonous, so try different ways to practise and improve your English.
How about Crosswords? Have you used these on your phone before? First of all, doing crossword puzzles involves combining several useful skills including reasoning, spelling, and vocabulary word attack skills. Let’s have a look at one great Crossword app that I’ve found while here at Atlas. It’s called ‘Wordalot’.
What is ‘Wordalot’?
Wordalot follows the structure of a traditional crossword. The goal is to fill the missing squares with letters, forming words or phrases, by solving clues.
Wordalot is the perfect way to occupy you during your commute and practise your English with crossword puzzles on your way to class. Puzzle your way through more than 1,000 crossword levels.
How does it work?
You just need to fill in all the empty cells in the crossword grid. For each puzzle level you will find a picture showing different objects, people, animals and so on. Just type in the names of the objects shown in the picture. You can use a hint if one clue is too difficult. Learn new words, use your imagination and you’re your way through the levels.
Who is it for?
It’s for everybody, all levels of English and all ages!
Is it an app?
Yes, it is. The app works on Android and is available on Google Play.
Do I need to pay?
No. The app is totally free.
Do I need to login?
No. You only need to download the app on your mobile.
Are there any disadvantages?
Unfortunately, the app is not available for iOS devices.
Give it a go!
To get started, try these introductory tasks. Immerse yourself in English and you’ll be on the way to get to the level you want!
Task 1 - Download Wordalot onto your phone for free.
Task 2 - Complete two crosswords in a day.
Task 3 - Try to do another two crosswords each day for the rest of the week and move onto harder levels. You’ll kick your brain into action. It'll thank you for it later!
