    General question

    Hello,

    Is there a place on this website to learn a new word everyday. (something like: "word of the day")

    I don't know about this website, but googling 'word of the day' shows that there are plenty of other sites which do exactly that.

    I can't see how a word a day would be useful by any means? I don't think I can learn a word out of any contexts.

    Dictionary and Thesaurus - Merriam-Webster Online has a word of the day. You can sign up to receive it in an e-mail.

    There are other sites that have a word of the day that they'll send via e-mail as well. Just google "Word of the day" and see what looks good.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
