I think these vocab excercises are great; I am an English teacher too, and happen to love it as well, so anything that promotes the language -thereby helping to maintain high standards in the face of the obscenities and assaults recent trends and the internet perpetuate - is a significant and valuable way to make a difference and I appreciate it.

Cool. I'm glad you like these exercises, and I hope you get plenty of use out of them.

And, of course, I hope they help your students.

Cheers!
