English self learning 1 st year - Wordchip - English corpus - 2005 edition
Here is the complete set of exercises on Wordchip, grouped per topic/exercise. It gives you the following elements, illustrated by the first
word in the first topic:

5.
6.

A sentence of context [A lot of people are out of work, aren't they ? Yes, there is a lot of ... in Europe.] - you have to find the missing
word, which we call here the target word.
The phonetics for its main vowel : []w]
The syllables, highlighting the stressed one: o o M o - in this case 4 syllables, the third one is stressed
A translation of the target word: chômage
The target word itself in the first column of the following line: unemployment
A possible alternative in the context sentence: redundancy - this is not necessarily a synonym!

Practise this by guessing the target word, finding some help in the pronunciation and translation or in the alternative solutions. Underline
the elements in the sentence that go together with the target word, [are out of work] in the example.
The present list is likely to contain some minor inaccuracies (accents missing in French for example) - please let your teacher know if you
find any.
We suggest you use this list to study the corpus, then use the Wordchip software to test yourselves.
