    How to create a custom dictionary

    I am an assistant professor and I am working on a new method of learning English or any other languages.
    I have a word list of 1000 words. Like this:
    A (an)

    I want to choose or create some texts including only the words of my word list. So I need a program to help me to recognize any other words out of the list, like the Microsoft Word that underlines any misspelled words.
    I have seen the help of the Microsoft Word that suggest creating a custom dictionary, but
    1. I do not have a custom dictionary; I only have a word list.
    2. More important is this problem that the Microsoft Word does not remove its main dictionary; therefore I could not recognize the words out of my list.
    3. If I choose German, for example, as the main language of the computer and add the words of my list to it, what about the common words between German and English?
    I want you to help me in this problem. I want you to give me a step by step solution, and if possible, examine the solution yourself to be sure it is successful.

    Thanks a lot

    You can create a custom.dic in MS Word. Under Tools, Options, find the spelling and grammar tab. There should be button for changing and editing the custom.dic.
