What is a word bank exactly?  Word banks provide core vocabulary which can help in:

  • Vocabulary development
  • Spelling support
  • Gaining the gist of an article
  • Recalling previously learned or used words
  • Or as a general tool to help support one’s writing

The extension features over 5 million topics to choose from.  Or, the text on a web page can be made into a word bank instantly.

To use the word bank, simply hover over the words to listen to them aloud.  If you’d like to insert a word from the bank, click on it and it’ll go wherever your cursor is placed!
