Use your words!

Dictionary (software)

Ok, I admit it: I’m kind of a nerd. One of my very favorite websites (that I use constantly) is dictionary.com. It’s not just an online dictionary, but also a thesaurus, an encyclopedia and a translator – and so much more! For a diversion, I like to solve (or try to solve) the daily crossword or play one of the word games. All that said, the best feature (in my humble opinion) is the Word of the Day. You can have it emailed to you or sent to your mobile phone – how convenient is that!

Every morning I’m greeted with a new word to play with. Checking morning email is so much more enjoyable! I like to write the day’s word & definition in a notebook along with a sentence or two using the word in context to help me remember it. Then I try to use it at least 3 times that day. I told you I was a little nerdy. 🙂

In any case, it’s a fantastic way to increase your vocabulary (and impress your friends – well, probably not, but learning new words is never a bad thing).
