Word Game

The goal of this word game is to help build vocabulary. Test your stored knowledge and vocabulary skills before researching words online or in the dictionary.

Directions:

1. Type a word that begins with the letter C and ends with the letter T in the Leave a Reply/Leave a Comment section below.

2. Select any three unfamiliar words from the list we have provided below or any three unfamiliar words that participants have shared in the Leave a Reply/Leave a Comment section below. Google the words to learn their definitions, then write three simple sentences for each of the new words you’ve learned.

3. If you select a word that you don’t know how to pronounce, Google the word. Usually, there will be a megaphone icon next to the Googled word. Click on the megaphone icon to listen to the word’s correct pronunciation.

4. Pay it forward by sharing your sentences in the Leave a Reply/Leave a Comment section below (keep scrolling down).

Let’s get started. I’ll start:

• concupiscent

• corespondent

• confinement

• concomitant

• consignment

• conflagrant

• confront

• compatriot

• catalyst

• chauvinist

• conversant

• consistent

• coherent

• clarinet

• comport

• contort

• craft

• compliant

There are over 700,000 words in the English language. It is virtually impossible to know the meaning of every word or even how to correctly pronounce them. Always remember, it is okay if you do not know the definition of a word the first time you hear it. But frequent practice will make your comprehension and pronunciation much better.

Remember to relax while you are learning new words. Doing so will help make learning much easier. Plus, our staff is here to assist you in learning more.

Please share your answers in the Leave a Reply/Leave a Comment section below (keep scrolling down). A member of our teaching staff will provide helpful feedback on your syntax.
