Vocab quizzes - Gardens and gardening

These quizzes have three main ideas:
1. Dictionary resources - Take advantage of the online resources at the Oxford Advanced Learner's Dictionary (OALD) and the Merriam-Webster Visual Dictionary (M-WVD).
2. Learn progressively - You can start off with the easier options such as multiple choice, and when you think you know most of the answers, you can move onto Text entry.
3. Dip in and out - You don't have to do everything at one sitting. Do a little and come back later, perhaps in a more difficult format.

Printer friendly post

You can make clean copies of each exercise for printing. Each section will be on a separate page, starting with 'The garden' on Page 2, so do a 'Print preview' to make sure you only print what you want. You can make a teacher copy with answers by clicking on 'Show'. Make sure you 'Clear' before printing student copies.
