My Word Coach review

Pretend to be smart in social situations


  • Learning new words
  • Inventive "puzzle learning"
  • Sounding educated


  • Your low daily rating
  • Lots of play required
  • Regretting sleeping in English class

Dec 13, 2007

Do long words confuse you? Is vocabulary not your strong point? In lieu of a traditional education, you might want to check out this piece of self-help software. By filling in missing letters, un-jumbling words from an alphabet soup, picking the correct definition and eliminating letters from a puzzle board, you%26rsquo;ll improve your ability to express yourself. Or so they say. We can%26rsquo;t see what anyone will gain from this that they couldn%26rsquo;t gain tenfold from a good novel and a dictionary. It takes a lot of play to get an updated daily rating, which will remain at a cynically low level for a long time to keep you playing. That%26rsquo;s our excuse, anyway.
