What our experts think
Kids’ Vocab is a fantastic learning game that covers vocabulary from a wide range of topics. Our testers loved the challenge of the games, trying to beat their own scores and the scores of others; this, along with the quests and rewards, is a great way to get children to keep practising. The time pressure added excitement and made the games even more tricky!
We love that the words are not just memorised, but shown in various contexts so children can learn their meaning. The correct answer is shown straight away, so children are encouraged when they get the answer right, or can learn the right answer. The games keep going even if they get something wrong which helps promote perseverance.
It would be even better if...
Children missed some non-critical features, including the Lesson review in the top right (which has an explanation of all of the vocabulary being covered in that lesson) and changing topic by going to ‘Lessons’.
