I was expecting a matching letters level and was initially a little disappointed. However, I see the developer response to this issue so we are excited to try it.
Poorly thought out game
Rather than picking words that are aligned to the age group selected, like short easy words for 4 year olds, it uses words too big for them to learn to spell but makes it easy by only requiring them to guess just the first letter. Lazy on the developers part. Worst of all, no way to turn off the clues that the character gives. Doesn't allow my kid to try to figure out the letter. While he's thinking, it'll just tell him what the letter is. If he makes one wrong guess, it'll just tell him what the letter is. GIVE THE KID A LITTLE TIME TO TRY TO FIGURE IT OUT!

Thank you for your feedback.
1. Junior Mode - if you're in Junior mode, tap on the settings button ('II') in the top left hand corner. Once here you will see the words 'Home, Restart, and Achievements.' Underneath these words is the option to turn on or off the 'hints' and 'speech.'
2. Play Mode (after selecting versus or Zen) - to increase the difficulty, tap on the settings button ('II') in the top left hand corner. Once here you will see the words 'Home, Restart, Achievements, and Albums.' Underneath these words is the option to turn on or off the 'hints' and 'speech.' There is also a difficulty meter where players can select the levels Easy, Medium, Hard, and Impossible. The Impossible level is an adult favorite!
Please note that some downloadable Words albums that are created by the general public may not have these options associated with them.

English only, please, when English is chosen.
We have been unable remove the non-English words that pop in about 5% of the time during spelling games. For beginner spellers to be expected to know non-English words is counter productive and it is certainly not ‘chic’. I had to Google search the words and meanings. Even my French speaking granny and Spanish speaking auntie didn’t understand the nonsense words being used. It is annoying! Especially when double checking the settings, it is clear that the only choice was for English that we were using.

Osmo Words is focused as a spelling and reading game. For a better introduction to phonics, please see our Osmo Little Genius ABCs product, which provides a systemized approach to teaching short and long vowels, blends, and digraphs. Please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have additional questions!
