Would you like to learn compelling new vocabulary every day automatically?
Have a look at the picture on the right.
♦How would you describe the man’s personality?
♦ How would you describe the background colour?
If the first or only word that you thought of was ‘happy’, then you need to upgrade your vocabulary! How can you do that? … Well, I’m getting to that! … First, let’s look at two more pictures.
How does the doctor on the left feel? Do you know a more descriptive word than ‘sad’ or ‘upset’ ?

By subscribing to the Merriam-Webster online English Learners dictionary, you will daily receive:
♦ an excellent, new word with a full description and sentence examples in context,
♦ a picture – which makes remembering so much easier, and
♦ audio pronunciation.
Deciding to Subscribe (for free) is the only decision you have to make. Then, you will automatically receive a Learner’s Word of the Day each day. It will take only about 30 seconds of your time to read it, maybe less. The 30 seconds it takes you to read the definition and sentence examples will be a great little mini-lesson.
The sentence examples contain natural collocations. For advanced and proficiency level English students, it is worth remembering that the main difference between you and native English speakers is the use of collocation.
I suggest that you create a Word of the Day folder in your Inbox, so you can refer to your new vocabulary easily, but keep the emails in your regular Inbox also so that you have a visual reminder whenever you use your email account.
Click on the pictures above to see the definitions of ‘vibrant’, ‘distraught’ and ‘entail’. This will take you to the Learner’s Word of the Day website.
