Discover a better way to teach vocabulary
Vocabulary.com partners with teachers to help students master new words. We teach vocabulary so you can focus on the curriculum.
We teach more than 16,000 words with over 242,000 questions. We've curated 13,000 vocabulary lists that align with commonly taught curriculum. From social studies textbooks like America: Pathways to Present to staples like The Great Gatsby, our resources supplement whatever you're teaching.
Mastery, not memorization
Our smart award–winning adaptive engine selects questions to systematically challenge students with words they are ready to learn. Our varied question formats teach each word's multiple meanings to help students build a deeper understanding of each word in context, rather than mere memorization.
Motivating student learning
With every activity, students gain points and achievements so they can level up in our ranks while building their word learning! Our gamified approach encourages students to flex their vocab muscles with daily exercise and inspires them to master more words, above and beyond what their teacher has assigned.
