About the Exercises

This website features over 500 gap-fill exercises to learn and review over 1500 items of general vocabulary in English. Gap-fill exercises are an excellent way to practise vocabulary in different contexts and can be used to broaden the student's understanding of the range of meaning of vocabulary. The online format of the exercises allows students to get immediate feedback on their answers.

- The site is intended for English language students from an intermediate to advanced level.
- For ease of use, the "General" English vocabulary words have been grouped into various categories.
- For the categories which include lots of items, the words are further divided into groups of 14~17 words.
- Each group of words appears in 5 different gap-fill exercises.
- Some of the exercises include different derivations (the verb, noun, adjective and adverb forms + variants) for the words given.
- Ideally, students should work through the five exercises for each group before going on to the next group.
