DIY Vocab Tests

Here's an example

Click: http://www.englishclub.com/ref/Idioms/Body/

Use the search function in your browser to see how many times do "heart" or "head" or "feet" turn up - Can you remember any expressions with those words?

Now look through the search results and see what you got!

So - Use a webpage vocab list to test yourself:

Use the search function in Chrome (or IE) to how many times a word is picked up in the page - then try to anticipate the expressions before you go through and check them.

Remember the search will find *all* the mentions so divide by three to eliminate the repeats of the word in the explanation.

If the search finds 10 uses, that suggests 3 or 4 expressions. 16 sounds like 4 to 6 expressions
