The word of the day is "seep." Water and other liquids seep when they move slowly from one area into another.


Here's another video for forming questions in the present continuous tense.

Lesson Fifteen in the Blue Level is on possessive pronouns. It's helpful to look also at Lesson Fourteen in the Blue Level which is on possessive adjectives.

  • That's his car. (his = possessive adjective)
  • The car is his. (his = possessive pronoun)
  • That's her idea. (her = possessive adjective)
  • That idea is hers. (hers = possessive pronoun)

Do you understand the differences? If not, you should work on both of the lessons linked above.

Here's a new video that shows how to form the present continuous tense in English. This replaces a really old one that I made about ten years ago:


The word of the day is "log." A log is a thick piece of unprocessed wood. Logs are created by cutting down a tree, but they also appear naturally when a tree falls down.

Logging is an important industry in the United States. A person who works in logging is a logger or a lumberjack.

log pile a stack of logs

The word of the day is "grunt." When used as a verb, to grunt is to make a low sound at the the back of your throat to express physical or mental exertion.

  • The man grunted as he swung his hammer down upon the metal spike.

Here's a new lesson for the Yellow Level: more, less, fewer.

The word of the day is "fling."

The word of the day is "eliminate." To eliminate something is to get rid of it. This word is often used when talking competition, problems, and things that people want to kill.

  • Gardeners use weed killer to eliminate weeds in their gardens.


The word of the day is "dive." This word is often used as a verb when people go swimming. You dive into the water.

You can also use "dive" as a noun to describe a place that looks old or unkept. Here's a picture of a hotel in Minneapolis that would fit the description of a dive:


It looks like a dive, but it might be nice inside!

The word of the day is "clench." To clench something is to hold it in your hands or your teeth very tightly. To clech is also to express some type of emotion such as anger, fear, or anxiety through the teeth or the hands.

He clenched his fist.


The word of the day is "weep." This is another word tha you can use when a person is crying:

weeping character

He's been weeping all day because he lost his cat.

The word of the day is "vein." There are veins in your body that circulate blood.


Each course level on this website has a checklist. Print out and keep the checklist next to your computer, tablet, or phone and use it to track your progress as you move through the lessons:
