How do I create my own vocabulary list?

As well as the thousands of vocabulary lists available in Language Perfect, you can make your own lists, based on what your students are doing in class.

To begin with, select the purple Content Library tab in your Control Panel.

Set your Content Library to Edit mode, using the switch in the top-right corner of the page.

If the appropriate subject is not displayed in the window that opens, you can change it by selecting the subject name in the top left corner, and scrolling down through the list. 

From here, select Create an activity, scroll down through the menu, and select Translation list

In the window that follows, you have the option to Import from spreadsheet, where you can copy and paste columns of vocabulary and translations directly into the system from a spreadsheet file.

You also have the option to Import from another list, which will allow you to set up a translation list that consists of select entries from other lists in your Content Library.

To build a translation list from scratch, select Build. Here, you manually type in vocabulary and translations.

Add words by typing the word to translate on the left or the translation on the right. Additional words and definitions may be placed on either side by clicking in the spaces next to listed translations.

Continue to add as many words as you would like by selecting Add Translation, and repeating the process. Filling in the lowest entry and selecting Enter on the keyboard will also automatically create another entry.

Note that you can still import vocabulary from other lists or from a spreadsheet, by selecting Import at the top of the screen. 

Give your list a name by selecting the title, and typing it in, then click Save List.

Your list will now be showing up in your Private Workspace folder. You can assign it as a homework task or quick test, and, if you would like to make it visible to other teachers or students, move it to your school's folders
