Tool useful to English Language Teachers and Students

Russell Stannard
This tool is amazing. It allows you to convert any website into a clickable page that will immediately connect to a dictionary that gives you the meanings of the words. It also collects the words in a history list and allows you to play games with them. See this to believe it!!!
