Vocabulary Upgrade II Review

What is Vocabulary Upgrade II app?

Vocabulary Upgrade II app is an app aimed towards older ages hoping to help users in their understanding and use of the English language, especially in terms of spelling, comprehension and expanding their vocabulary with higher level, frequently tested words.

What we love about Vocabulary Upgrade II

Vocabulary Upgrade II app has a number of really good features that make it a fun learning tool with its gameplay and premise. The fact that there are multiple ways to access the word lists means that each set of words is introduced in a different way so it isn’t at all repetitive.

What age is it appropriate for?

Vocabulary Upgrade II app is rated for children over 12 years. As previously mentioned I think that children need to have a good understanding of the English language and be looking to extend and improve their use and comprehension of high level words. Therefore, children under 12 may be able to access the app if they are at this level and looking for help them do this.

How will students benefit?

Students will benefit by coming across new words of a higher level and learning how to use these words as well as how to spell them and what other words they are similar to.

How will parents benefit?

Parents, especially if they encourage their child to use the app will be able to see them expanding their vocabulary. They may also decide to use this in collaboration with their child’s school.

What Vocabulary Upgrade II can improve on?

I really like a lot about the app however, I would suggest a couple of things to really make the most out of the learning. The age range for the app is above 12 however, some of the gameplay within the app does seem to be pitched at a slightly younger age. One part of the app has a story that introduces the word list but the graphics and story itself does seem younger than the students that will potentially be using the app.

Another thing that would be good to see would be some type of monitoring system where it was clear to see the words that the user had interacted with and how successful they had been in the quizzes. This would certainly help to extend and personalise the learning within the app.

How much does Vocabulary Upgrade II cost?

The cost for the app is $1.99

What is included with the free version vs. paid?
