Learn or not to learn words?

Hello everyone, I decided that our blog needs to be a bit updated. EPOTI is a great group on skype meeting every day in text and voice conferences, both hanging around and improving their English. People are friendly and helpful, there are some native speakers helping us too. Sometimes we read, do exercises, riddles or quizzes. And sometimes some of us sing for us :)

After spending long time on skype I have to admit that speaking ablity is the most important skill in English, even if we make lots of mistakes. Anyway, as I like to learn new words I would like to share some links, even though we really do not have to memorize all of them, as someone noticed, we can find them in a dictionary and most native speakers do not use them at all.

Vocabulary for SAT examSome tests with really hard wordsA nice project aimed to save some obscure words which were thrown off from English dictionariesHappy Easter to everyone, see you in Second Life sometimes.
