The “Special Holiday Emergency Desk” is a wonderful application to reinforce vocabulary with English Language Learners, and it’s also a lot of fun for anybody else.

You type in the word for just about anything, and a virtual artist “draws” it for you. It’s an almost seamless use of Google Image search that converts any image into a version that appears like it’s been drawn.

It fits right in with similar apps I have on The Best “When I Say Jump” Online Sites For Practicing English, which I think is one of my favorite “The Best…” lists.
