World of Words and Junior World of Words are accessible to learners from anywhere in the world as they teach English words and sentences entirely through pictures.

Junior World of Words differs from the complete version in that there are more screens, but each one contains fewer words and has bigger pictures, making it ideal for less able learners.   There are 45 topic-based picture screens, each with its own built-in testing of comprehension.

Each screen has three activities: Words, Sentences and Quiz:

Pointing at objects with the mouse brings up labels. Clicking on them allows the learner to hear the words spoken.



The learner is presented with a number of sentences related to the topic, with accompanying pictures to assist comprehension.  These introduce a variety of verbs to connect the (mostly) nouns on the picture pages, as well as some adjectives and prepositions.  After all of the sentences have been heard there is a matching activity (as above) to reinforce the language structures.



Comprehension is tested by a Quiz in which you are asked to find something in the picture, and you have to click on the correct object.
