In Wozzol you can give a whole context sentence when you are adding a word and use square brackets to identify which word you are learning. For example:
[de zon] komt op in het oosten = [the sun] rises in the east
In this example Wozzol will only test you on the word ‘de zon’. The rest of the sentence is provided to give you the context. Make sure that if you are likely to be tested on vocabulary without context, that you are still able to do this and don’t make all your knowledge dependent on context!
A simple sentence with context:
The father was playing with his son while [the mother] was reading a book.
De vader speelde met zijn zoon terwijl [de moeder] een book las.
Here the sentence is being used as a context sentence for ‘de moeder’ while it could equally be used for another word in the sentence.
A sentence where the meaning of the word is also explained in the foreign language:
[petrichor] is the scent of rain on dry earth
[de geur van aarde na de regen]
A sentence where a word that is difficult to translate is better explained:
het vinden van [iets leuks] terwijl op zoek naar iets anders
Sentences where the context is used to give a specific meaning or multiple meanings to be learned:
He is a nice [neighbour]. = Hij is een leuke [buurman].
She is a nice [neighbour]. = Zij is een leuke [buurvrouw].
[neighbour] = [buurman] / buurvrouw
[neighbour] = buurman / [buurvrouw]
