This section is ideally suited to elementary and slightly older learners and encompasses
inter alia vocabulary and
grammar exercises such as parts of speech, tenses, antonyms, homonyms, homophones and synonyms.

The activities and worksheets available through this website are by no means exhaustive, and many far more complex
words can be included in the activities for older learners who have a higher level of vocabulary/comprehension.  
Exercises are ideal for student/educator interaction and perfect for homeschooling fun.
