5 Great Apps to Keep a Vocabulary Notebook

A Vocabulary Notebook is a booklet in which you can register new vocabulary so you can spend some time learning these new words out of the classroom. 

I have a lot of respect for students who are good listeners and readers and they always listen and read trying to find something new  to learn.

Sometimes  you have to ask yourself what was the last word that I learned?  so you can understand  how active you are in seeking new knowledge.

Some of my students  keep a vocabulary notebook in old fashion ways which is keeping a notebook close to them all the time.

Now  with the advancements in technology, this can be done through your smartphone, tablet  or your PC.
