I'm not sure how new the Dynamo feature of Dictionary.com is, but I just discovered it and I'm hooked! There are word lists and fun challenges galore for all ages at this site. Broken down into four grade level sections from 1st grade through post-graduate with numerous categories in each subsection to explore, Dynamo is a logophile's dream come true. When you sign up for a free account they perform a quick assessment of your word knowledge and give you a rank that you can improve by completing word challenges. The challenges at Dynamo include Match, Crossword, Listen, Write and Flashcards in numerous subject matter and grade levels. They also have standardized test preparation for everything from the PSAT to the MCAT. And it doesn't stop there! Dynamo offers lists for ESL, Spanish, Latin and French! Whether you build your own lists or choose from the hundreds of pre-made neatly categorized lists, Dynamo is sure to bring hours of challenges.
