Testimonials

“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.

 

“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!”
Joe Scott, Languages Teacher, @pixiejojo

 

“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 grappling with scraps of paper for time-consuming vocab tests. Being at the top of the leader board has become the equivalent of being at the top of the football league tables with students vying with each other to complete extra blocks to be the weekly champion. Every language department needs Vocab Express!”
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."

“We use Vocab Express on a regular basis to promote good vocab learning amongst our KS4 students. We have taken part in the League of Champions for a few years now and it really motivates our students. In spite of being a very small cohort (even within the 'piccolo' category) and in spite of being under lots of pressure with their GCSEs, the students are always really keen to take part and it really brings out their competitive side, to the point where they have begged me to organise a Vocab Express pizza evening on the last night of the contest for the last couple of years.”
Ali Ashburner, Subject Leader for Languages, Therfield School
