Posted in Labels:

Netspeak is a cool tool for educators. It allows its users to improve their English writing skills by guiding them on proper word usage. This tool is one of the best alternatives to help students who are lagging behind in writing assignments because of spelling errors. I always wanted a tool to help students to improve their writing skills and Netspeak is just what they need.

How does Netspeak work ?

Netspeak is an online dictionary but not in the actual sense of the word for it provides word suggestions and directions on how phrases are used and how commonly they are used. To find word suggestions in a phrase you need to use the following symbols:
  1. Put “?” in place of a word  to find appropriate word suggestions
  2. Put “*” in place of a word to find multiple word suggestions
  3. Put “[, ]” to check which of two or more words are commonly used
  4. Put “~”  to find the best synonyms that are commonly written
