  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    I have now used this game for junior high school, high school and companies and it is always a big hit … works really well.

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    I was leary to purchase Words Up, sight unseen, and very pleasantly surprised when my students played their first game and really enjoyed the experience. It’s a different vehicle for learning English and a nice change of pace. The game is well thought out and challenges many categories of critical thinking. The box could be made of sturdier cardboard but all other pieces and components are of good quality .

  3. Rated 4 out of 5

    I bought Word Up to play at home with my friends and family and I am glad I bought it. Because it is a fun way to learn English and always improving just by playing games with my friends. So I think it is good for anyone if you are learning English. My friends all love it too and some have bought it too

  5. Rated 5 out of 5

    I am a Director of Studies at a language school in Australia. One of our teachers recommended Word Up as a great way of changing things up and recharging the students. Since getting Word Up we have used it with each of the levels from Elementary to Upper Intermediate and it’s been popular with both teachers and students. It is possible to use the questions purely as a quiz if you don’t have enough time to set up the board game and the rules.

    There are very few board games that can be used in the ESL classroom with any real connection to language development without a lot of extra adaptation from the teacher. Word Up is one of the very few that builds language learning into a fun board game format. I would recommend it to any school.
