Aunque no se trata de una herramienta exclusivamente dedicada al aprendizaje de inglés, por su utilidad para la adquisición y repaso de vocabulario orientado sobre todo a un público infantil, recogemos en este blog un proyecto muy recomendable denominado Vocapic.

Vocapic es un libro de imágenes en forma de preguntas destinado al apendizaje de vocabulario básico (hoy en día 1.000 palabras repartidas en 35 categorías, para idiomas como el inglés, el español y el francés, aunque se avanza la introducción de otras lenguas como el alemán, el árabe o el ruso)

Se trata de un recurso muy flexible que para su uso no requiere registro, aunque este pueda convenir para un seguimiento de la actividad propia más ajustado.
