I've been looking for something like this for YEARS! Our pupils are finding Vocab Express really useful, and some even seem to be addicted. We have an ongoing competition with edible prizes for the top three scores in every lesson.
Hazel Bailey, Teacher, Bishop's Stortford College
Vocab Express has stood the test of time with our students. We’ve had it for more than two years now but just yesterday one student explained it like this to a new girl to the school: “It’s wicked. You just learn loads!”
Rachel Hawkes, Director of Language College, Comberton Village College
This is the best vocab building tool ever! I cannot tell you how much it has helped my pupils improve their understanding!
Jackie Howis, MFL Teacher, St Richard’s Catholic College
Whilst using Vocab Express, I have also experienced my competitive side; before every session of Vocab Express I look at the leader board to see who is ranked as 1st in each of my language classes. Whenever, I see that I am not at the top of the leader board I try my best to beat whoever is at the top position.
Rachel Eigbefoh, Year 9, Dartford Grammar School for Girls
Vocab Express guaranteed at least one grade difference!

I had a quick look at the live report [after introducing Vocab Express]... by 6.15pm twelve children had already accumulated impressive scores and were fighting to maintain their positions at the top of their form group! What a fantastic feeling!
Emma Passmore, Head of MFL, Daneshill Prep School
I can't recommend Vocab Express highly enough. Easy to use, fast, effective and highly-motivating. What a blessing Vocab Express has been; I can finally be confident that students are learning vocabulary on a weekly basis without wasting valuable class time...
Jane Bennett, Head of Spanish, Clitheroe Royal Grammar School
Vocab Express helped me with the verbs and encouraged me to use foundation and higher tier words.
Kalyani Kangasuthan, Year 10, Dartford Grammar School for Girls
The kids love it and it has improved general spelling like nothing else could. The best thing to happen to language learning ever!
Cat Trotter, Teacher of Russian & French, Calday Grange Grammar School
We have been absolutely delighted with the positive impact this has had on boys' learning and with the way it has raised the profile of Modern Languages within our school.
Robin Edmundson, Head of Modern Languages, City of London School
I have never ever seen my Year 11 boys so motivated. Thank you so much from everyone in our department.
Maxine Wyatt, Curriculum Leader for MFL, Swavesey Village College
I have found Vocab Express invaluable especially with my GCSE groups. Students become more competitive as they can see how their peers are competing against them.
Sue Fleet, Curriculum Leader, Ormiston Horizon Academy
I am throughly impressed that having been introduced to it before lunch my overly competitive year 11 spent the whole of their lunchtime on the Vocab Express app...
Kelda Richards, Team Leader Modern Languages, Isca College
Vocab Express has helped improve my vocabulary as a whole and it will help towards my GCSEs. It has inspired me to learn Spanish at Advanced Level.
Toyosi Ogunnaike, Year 11, Dartford Grammar School for Girls
In our opinion there is no better revision aid. Last year our pupils who made most use of Vocab Express got A and B grades.
Sarah Eden, Curriculum Area Leader MFL, Ribblesdale School
Have just had a quick check on [Vocab Express] (7.45 on a wet weds night at the end of term) and a couple of my year 11 boys are having a real battle for leadership ... it so appeals to their gaming, competitive nature! I love it!
Sarah Brown, MFL Teacher, Judgemeadow Community College
Vocab Express is the best thing that has ever happened to the languages faculty at DGGS!
Abigail Kwao, Year 11, Dartford Grammar School for Girls
The pupils love [Vocab Express]! Mainly because it is so addictive and with an element of competition! … The results are astonishing in terms of pupils building up their range of vocabulary and expressions.
Suzie Cleere, Head of Languages, Ardingly College
