Vocabulary

This is a great web site.  Teachers can use it with high level students who are having vocabulary problems.  For example, when writing a paper they might use words incorrectly as a result of translation.  You can simply mark the words you want the student to look up and then send them to the web site.  They can look up the word in the concordance or the collocation dictionary to see how it should be used and within what chunks of words it would appear in American English or British English.
