I would like to use more websites to practice vocabulary or grammar in my virtual classes. Most of the time, I use kahoot or quizlet. What other websites can I use?

Thanks for sending us your message. Well, I will share with you some of the websites I have found useful to help students practice vocabulary and grammar.
Educaplay is a gamification tool which allows you to create different types of activities such as riddles, fill in the blanks, crossword puzzles, word search puzzles that may help you present or review vocabulary/grammar structures. Also, you can create groups, invite the students to join and share with them "collections" which is a group of selected games.
GoConqr is a website that can be used as an LMS (Learning Management System or "platform") in which you can design and share with your students: customized slide sets, flashcards, mind maps, quizzes, etc. Besides this, you promote collaborative work as students may share their knowledge and projects as well.
Brainscape is a learning platform in which students learn through "adaptive flashcards". You have to create a class, invite your students, share or ask your students to create a deck (digital flashcards) in order to study the new vocabulary through a fun-spaced repetition system. You can track your student's progress and modify the content if you want.
Quizziz is an alternative for quizlet. It is an interactive learning platform that lets you create engaging quizzes and interactive presentations. You can get immediate feedback and students can have a lot of fun through these gamification features.
Some other websites that may be worth checking are: Anki, studystack, flashcard machine and Magoosh (TOEFL preparation)
I hope you find these websites useful and interesting, and you can use them to get the best from your students.
