If you like the idea of trying to build your vocabulary by a word per day, there are a number of ways that you can get your fix. Previous posts covered word-of-the-day websites and iOS apps, but here are some services that will bring a word (or sentence) to you everyday via Twitter, e-mail, RSS, or your Google or Yahoo homepages.
Follow on Twitter:
RSS, e-mail, and more:
- chinesecharacteraday.com — Dr. Adeline Mah offers a word a day by e-mail.
