About this community

Teaching/learning English vocabulary is a challenging. This group shares research, ideas, trivia, knowledge and inspiration: How the brain learns, how learning can be improved, and the idiosyncrasies of the English language. We welcome everyone passionate about education, literacy, and the English language. Our group consists of learners, teachers, tutors, parents, academics, and writers. This group is hosted by LearnThat Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit providing personalized vocabulary and spelling coaching online. We also provide a global literacy grant by the same name, Vocabulary Junction. Our lives are powered by words. Please join us, and help us empower people with a good education!
