Creative Spaces | Home | British Museum Simple English Wikipedia Educator Review What's It Like? Simple English Wikipedia is an adapted version of the regular Wikipedia site for English learners, younger students, or anyone who struggles with reading. While the homepage looks very similar to the regular Wikipedia site, the articles are written using basic vocabulary and grammar. The site has over 100,000 articles; students can search by keyword, or choose a topic from a set of knowledge groups like Sciences or Culture. There's also a Book Creator function that allows students doing research to collect a group of related articles in one place. Is It Good For Learning? With its basic vocabulary and grammar, Simple English Wikipedia can be a great tool to help some intermediate and advanced English learners access information and articles. Some teachers are wary about using Wikipedia as a research source, and with good reason – anyone can write and edit articles. How Can Teachers Use It?
