We all know how difficult it is to write, even more in a foreign language. More often than not we look up words in dictionaries only to find that it offers so many possibilities for the translation of the word that we don’t know which one to choose for the context we need.

Learning Chocolate… I wonder why they’ve chosen this name for a website that helps students improve vocabulary but it certainly does so and in a very efficient way.
There are lots of vocabulary categories to choose from ranging from the easy Numbers or the Seasons to the more sophisticated Insect Life Cycle.
How do you learn with this page?
Choose a category and begin to learn by choosing from five different activities. Every exercise is taught and revised with the help of pronunciation: for example , in some games you have to match the audio to the word or the words to the pictures and you can also do a ” fill in the gaps” exercise or a dictation.
What I specially like about this site is that it uses visual aid to help students learn better and faster and at the same time teaches them how to pronounce .
So, I was going to point out that working with Learning with chocolate you kill two birds with the same stone but noooo…. you kill four birds … ’cause you can learn Chinese Mandarin or Japanese too. As always , the choice is yours!
