Learning new words and phrases can often be a daunting task that is why we feel it is vital to find unique and refreshing ways to introduce words to a person, so we have designed these following free-form crossword style puzzles to help build your vocabulary. Remember all of these puzzles are always 'FREE' to download!
Strategy and Tips:
Like many other crossword-style puzzles the words are arranged in both across and down orientations, with the words interlaced.
One difference between the standard crossword and these puzzles is that after the clues a word list ( Vocabulary words ) is attached to each puzzle. ( Except for the interactive puzzles, our apologies).
**Our recommendation **
Scan the Vocabulary word list and enter the words you are sure the definitions of first.
