TWO TOOLS TO IMPROVE YOUR WRITING (1B2)
THANKS TO MY COLLEAGUE, CRISTINA CABAL, I CAN RECOMMEND YOU TWO TOOLS THAT MIGHT HELP YOU IMPROVE YOUR WRITING.
Phrase-up assists you with writing by finding and filling-in the words you can´t remember. Imagine you know there is an expression containing the words ” connect” and “internet” but you have forgotten what goes in the middle , PhraseUp can help you here , too. Just type the words that you remember and put an asterisk * where you want the application to insert something. …. and voilà!!
Ozdic.com brings you a completely new type of dictionary that will help English lerners write and speak natural-sounding English.
Collocations – common word combinations such as ‘bright idea’ or ‘talk freely’ – are the essential building blocks of natural-sounding English. The dictionary contains over 150,000 collocations for nearly 9,000 headwords.
The dictionary shows all the words that are commonly used in combination with each headword: nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, and prepositions as well as common phrases.
“Let’s imagine you need to use the word “idea” but you have no clue what adjective to use apart from the overused “good “. Go to the dictionary now , this is just a sample of what you’ll find : bright, brilliant, clever, excellent,, marvellous | valuable, worthwhile | exciting, inspirational, interesting, stimulating | constructive, positive | absurd, bad, mistaken, ridiculous | , crazy, mad, outlandish, wild | half-baked | ambitious, big, grand.” (CRISTINA CABAL)
