Googlebattle is a very simple tool which allows you to compare words, phrases to see how they are used. It is very simple to use. Type in two words or phrases and Google will give you results of how popular they are.

 

If you click on ‘view’ next to the result you will be given an example of the context it is being used in.

How to use it with students:

Compare expressions

Compare British and American spelling

Check the popularity of the word, phrase or expression
