If you are faced with a simple decision or if you cannot decide whether to use effect or affect in a sentence, here is a cool tool for you to compare things: Diffen.
Enter two terms and instantly learn the similarities and the differences between two things. You can view the Wikipedia style of entries on the page as well. You can also add your own comparison to the list.
We can use this tool to discuss about the results, search about two historical events, two places to visit, two important people or devices. We can create our own lists for our students or encourage them to check the ready-made one. Enjoy the differences.
