A new approach to vocabulary

We started Go Vocab after struggling to learn a second language in High School. We knew there had to be a better way. We set out to build a fun way for students to learn vocabulary, because rote learning sucks.

Along the way we discovered that Language Teachers were also searching for a better way to teach vocabulary. Then we realised that vocabulary isn't the only painful part of learning a language, verb conjugations are just as bad!

Go Vocab is a new way to teach, learn and revise vocabulary. For students it's fun, competitive and effective. For teachers, Go Vocab frees up valuable class time to be used on more interactive activities.

Our work is far from over. We're making Go Vocab better every day. If you have any suggestions for how to improve Go Vocab, let us know!
