About Prodigy English

Prodigy English is a fantasy game that reviews English language and reading comprehension based on first through fifth grade Common Core ELA standards.

Prodigy English Review

PRODIGY ENGLISH begins with children designing their avatars and realising that they have won a virtual village. With the help of wishcoins and a mystical creature named Wishie, children learn that their objective in the game is to construct and improve their village. Wishie gives the children some basic tools and assists them in completing various jobs around the hamlet. 

The youngsters are put to work chopping down trees, breaking up stones, gathering beach goods, and more. They decorate, build goods, remodel buildings, and expand their hamlet with what they collect. The avatar requires energy to carry out all of this activity, which children can recharge by completing multiple-choice questions about English grammar and reading comprehension. Prodigy English is aligned to Common Core reading and language standards for grades 1 to 5. 

Prodigy English and Prodigy Math are both adaptive, engaging, game-based learning platforms designed to help students love learning. 

What do we like about Prodigy English?

Prodigy English is a game that emphasises creative creation and goal completion rather than combat, and there is no opportunity to play with others. The experience seems individualised since learning content evolves based on performance and kids direct their own play.

What skills does it improve?

The questions adapt to the skill level of the children, and they earn points and wishcoins as they successfully answer questions and do duties in their community.

What age is it appropriate for?

Prodigy English is appropriate for children from the age of seven. 

Is Prodigy English free?

Though the game is free to play, there is an option to subscribe to gain access to additional content, and children are frequently encouraged to do so.

Is Prodigy English easy to use?

It's easy to get caught up in the subscribe buttons while playing and wind up clicking totally out of the game.

How will students benefit?

Kids can use the same login credentials as adults, albeit Prodigy English is currently only available on the web. The game, as well as all of the learning content, is free, just like Prodigy: Kids Math Game. However, if a child has a paid subscription, they can level up faster and gain access to more features, and there are prompts to upgrade throughout the game.

How will teachers benefit?

In Prodigy English, teachers can discuss the learning content. Ask your children if they have any questions about the grammar, vocabulary, or reading comprehension skills as they play. Prodigy English is aligned to Common Core reading and language standards for grades 1 to 5. 

How will parents benefit?

Prodigy English is a fantasy game that reviews English language and reading comprehension based on the Common Core ELA requirements for first through fifth grades. Kids explore a virtual village, gathering goods, constructing objects, buying and selling in a virtual marketplace, and occasionally answering multiple-choice language and reading comprehension problems.

What can Prodigy English improve on?

However, it's sad that the learning content still feels like an afterthought. Some learning aids are limited, such as definitions of new vocabulary words and grammar phrases.

How much does Prodigy English cost?

A monthly subscription for $9.95 per month or a yearly subscription for $74.95 per year is available as free in-app purchases.

Final thoughts

Prodigy English, as a whole, will appeal to children and will be useful for ELA review and practice. Parents should be prepared to assist their children in focusing on the questions and managing their expectations about paying for membership.
