Once you make a list (or use one of our thousands of pre-existing lists), there are lots of things you can do with them.
Once you've made (or selected) a list, you can:
Review and Sort the List: Scroll down on the list page to see all the words on the list, their definitions, example sentences, and any notes you added to each word. Sort the list alphabetically, by difficulty, or by the order in which it was made. You can also choose to view the list as a simple comma-separated list, or complete with full definitions, example sentences, and notes.
Practice a List: Click the "Practice" button to start an exercise that will ask you a few questions on every word on the list. The more questions you get wrong on a word, the more questions we'll show you for that word. Repeat practice activities as many times as you like. Great for brushing-up on a list before a test. Of course if we notice your having any trouble with any words during practice, we'll automatically add them to your overall learning program.

Do a Spelling Bee: Click the "Spelling Bee" button to try out our spelling feature. You'll hear the word and see a definition. Spell the word correctly and move on to the next word. Make a mistake and you'll lose your streak — and have to spell the word again in a later round.

Add all the words on a list to your learning program: Mastering all the words on your list will take time, but if you're looking to learn a large set of words over an extended period of time, clicking "Add to Learning Program" is your best option.

Assign a List to your classes: If you are a teacher, you can easily assign a list to one or more of your classes. After you assign a list, your students will be notified of the assignment the next time they log in. Plus, you'll be able to track how much work each of your students has done on the list.
