Around the Web: Newsmart – Learn English with the Wall Street Journal.


GetNewsmart

Newsmart : The landing page offers straight improvement for  your English while reading today’s wall street journal. So  I decided to give it a try since the site looks professional and appealing.  You can easily  sign up  using the Facebook connect button.

The  first thing after registration that it is gonna pop up is a screen suggesting  a placement test or lessons right away.

Placement - Newsmart

The placement  test takes sometime ,you can start it and  then skip it  if you don’t want to go on with it . Once you are done with it  , you can click in any of the articles and start practicing the new vocabulary in a format like this:

This is a video  of the process signing in and  doing one of the exercises

This site  is good  for people who want to improve their language skills , the  vocabulary isn’t basic so it is definitely a step up  in learning and I wouldn’t expect  less than that  coming from  wall street journal articles.

Newsmart is even better now because now it is also available on android so user can  practice on the  go , you  can find it by  clicking on  the playstore app on your android device.
