If you're interested in language, or you know someone who is, here's a web site that will be of real interest. Reverso, while not being an inspiring name, is an amazing web site that describes itself as a linguistic portal. It combines a spell checker, verb conjugator, dictionary, grammar checker and translation system, all in a web-based system that doesn't require any software installation and is completely free to use.
So whether you need to check the spelling or grammar of an email you're writing, or your children need a fun way to look up the facts of language, Reverso is a superb online resource. It works in English, French, Spanish, German, Italian, Russian, Portuguese, Chinese, Arabic, Hebrew and Japanese. So if you've always wondered how to spell accommodation, or what the past continuous tense of "to work" is (answer: see below for the conjugation), Reverso will have the answer.
You'll find the site at www.reverso.net and, as mentioned, it's free to use. My thanks to Gizmo for bring it to my attention.

Literacy in Ireland
In the past literacy was considered to be the ability to read and write. Today the meaning of literacy has changed to reflect changes in society and the skills needed by individuals to participate fully in society. It involves listening, speaking, reading, writing, numeracy and using everyday technology to communicate and handle information.
Hi, my name is Loreto and I'm an adult literacy tutor. I created this website to keep track of all things useful I have come across. Sometimes I am given a link by someone and if its not put on here it can be forgotten about. If you come across something you think is useful or even just fun, drop me a note to let me know and I will put it on here. Thank you for your time and I hope you find this website useful.
