If you are serious about your English, you will fall in love with WordUp. It is the smartest way to perfect your English, and learn every word that matters while enjoying the process!

WordUp helps you to build a MAP of your KNOWLEDGE. Every word you know, and every word you don't. All 25,000 useful English words are ranked in the order of IMPORTANCE, and USEFULNESS, based on how often they are used in real-world spoken English (extracted from thousands of movies, and TV shows).

By creating your Knowledge Map in WordUp, you constantly discover the most valuable next word to learn that you don't know yet, and focus on learning them in that order. It's the smartest way to spend your time learning!

To actually learn the words that you discover in your Knowledge Map, WordUp gives you everything you need, and more! From word definitions and pictures to tens of entertaining examples from movies, quotes, news, and more. So you get a good feel of how to use each word in context. There are also translations in more than 30 languages including French, Spanish, German, Arabic, Turkish, Persian, ...

The daily reviews then kick in. Like flashcards, the words will come back with games and challenges until you master them. It's called Spaced Repetition, and it's scientifically proven to help memorise them forever!

WordUp is unlike any vocabulary builder app you've seen before. It is not another dictionary app, although it can be used as an English dictionary too.

WordUp's novel approach to language learning and expanding your vocabulary will leave you feeling confident and empowered. Whether you are new to English, are preparing for an English exam (IELTS, TOEFL, etc), or are a native English speaker, you will find WordUp helpful and entertaining. Just give it a try and see for yourself!

So pleased with this app

I've subscribed to "Word Of The Day" emails. I've looked up words I don't know. None of that helps me retain. This app however has changed my life (and my vocabulary.) The simple action of allowing me to see the words the next day, and then the next, until I remember it, is the trick. And when I remember it, it shows it to me again in 3 days, 7 days, 30 days, etc., so I never forget it. Plus with the paid version, between those intervals, I can play simple games which keep the words at the forefront of my mind. And I keep bringing in new words to learn entirely at my own pace. Simple and brilliant and life changing. I look forward every day to incorporating my new words into every day conversation.

Use to recommend, no longer would unless fixed

When I first downloaded this app it was great, in just a few weeks I even upgraded to the Essential subscription because I knew it was something I would want to practice daily. More recently WordUp made a change and it’s been for the absolute worst. I use to be able to test myself and practice words from my “Learning” bucket for as long as I’d like, 5-10 minutes. Now I can only test myself with a small handful of words from the “Learning” bucket and it then moves me to explore new words. The reason why I downloaded this was to learn new words and practice them over time so the repetition makes them more familiar. Now I am just shuffling through 10 new words a day without any repetition. Would absolutely not recommend unless they fix. If and when they fix it is a complete recommend.

Dear user, we want to help you with this, it would be helpful to have a little bit more information. Can you send any screenshots related to the issue along with your device details at https://www.wordupapp.co? Thanks.

Excellent App!

I have never written a review for an app. Hopefully you will find my review to be helpful. I am extremely satisfied with Word Up and I found it profoundly useful with excellent customer service. I suggested to add the synonym for each vocabulary and it was updated the next day. I am impressed with their ability to resolve my request promptly. It’s been a few weeks since I downloaded the app. I tested a few days than I decided to purchase the full year version to get more functionalities out of it. It’s fun, it’s interesting and more importantly I am learning new words everyday! I would recommend this app to anyone who wants to improve their vocabulary. Keep up the good work!!!
