Best free word cloud generators for language learning in 2022
As a language teacher I often use word clouds (or tag clouds). In this review, I offer my personal top free word cloud generator for visualizing the most frequent English words.

The minimalistic service and the only one I’ve analyzed that lemmatizes words to the initial grammatical form, so instead of go, goes, gone, going you get GO. Simple interface, good ready-made styles. I also like that the algorithm places the most frequent words closer to the center of the cloud, that is, the visual focus is on the frequent vocabulary. The only minus is not a large choice of cloud shapes (only square for now).

It is a multilingual free service, providing many cloud forms and options for customizing fonts and colors. There are attractive palettes and styles, font previews make it easy to choose. As input, you can load both text and a list of words, which can be very useful. Among disadvantages — there is no possibility to lemmatize words to the initial form, not all fonts work for foreign languages. The abundance of fonts and colors allows you to make the cloud very attractive, but difficult to read.
