Do you support foreign languages (e.g. Spanish, French, Japanese)?
Yes, we do support foreign languages that use accented characters, and even some like Japanese that don't use the Latin alphabet. We do not support, however, languages that read right-to-left like Arabic and Hebrew.
Can I print my word searches?
Yes. WordMint allows you to print both answer keys, where the answers are already filled in, and "student copies," which can be photocopied and distributed.
Are crosswords beneficial tools in the teaching of ESL/EFL students?
