Description

Are you tired of dull vocab apps that are just variations of memorizing definitions and flipping through virtual flashcards? Well, we LOVE vocabulary words but hate rote memorization and boring example sentences. So we built VocabSushi, a revolutionary app that lets you learn the vocabulary from classic books like "20, 000 Leagues Under the Sea" and "Frankenstein" using actual sentences! We think you’ll agree there’s no better way to learn vocabulary than through the writing of the best authors of our time.

VocabSushi is endlessly addictive because it offers content that is always fresh and interesting. No other vocabulary app does this. When you’re done learning the vocabulary from, say, Jack London’s "Call of the Wild" you can dive into H.G. Wells’ "War of the Worlds" or 100 other books.

We think a great sentence is like a work of art, and we’ve selected thousands of the best ones so you can read bitesize portions of your favorite books and focus on the vocabulary in the sentences. Best of all, it's free!

FEATURES:

* Free app includes 2 free books: 20, 000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne and Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens.

* Rock the vocab sections of the SAT, ACT, GRE, TOEFL and more, or excel in English class or just build an impressive vocabulary through the classics.

* In-app purchase of 100 additional classic books like Sherlock Holmes and The Scarlet Letter, just to name a few.

* Browse vocabulary words that appear in each chapter along with definition. Click for the sentence.

* Learn section shows you a sentence from the chapter and lets you figure out what the boldfaced vocab word means based on the context. Tap for its definition and swipe to move on.

* Quiz has tons of sentence completion questions that use real sentences from the selected chapter and vocabulary from the book as answer choices.

* “Tap for hint” to get the definition of the answer word.

* Earn points for correct answers (5x the difficulty level if correct on first attempt, 3x difficulty if correct on second attempt).

* Set your difficulty level and see only challenging words.

* Check your points status in the progress page.

* Average of 500 vocab words and 1000 sentence completion questions for each book.
