Crossword Puzzles

We have a large collection of crossword puzzles online, and new ones are added on a regular basis. They are entertaining to play, but they are also educational in that they help to reinforce spelling.

The three Benefits of Crossword Puzzles

  • To begin with, our crossword puzzles are completely free to play, and you can even go old school and print them out to enjoy later.
  • Furthermore, these puzzles are excellent for consolidating spelling because they require you to spell linked words correctly in order to complete the task.
  • Above all, the more words you encounter and comprehend, the broader your daily vocabulary will become, so they are an excellent way to increase your exposure to both old and new words.

To get started playing, just select a level from below. Best of luck.

In addition, learning English requires not just a good vocabulary, but a strong foundation of English grammar to communicate effectively and our grammar exercises provide the practice for this purpose.

When learning vocabulary, especially helpful are our vocabulary exercises that are focussed on a theme or topic as these provide word retention practice, so you can be confident to read, write, speak and listen successfully.

Most importantly, once you are at a good level of English, you should combine your knowledge of vocabulary and grammar to understand and produce well-written pieces of text. We provide model text types for you to read and practice.
