Is It Any Good?

The games listed on English Online GameZone cover a nice variety of language and grammar topics. Kids can get a lot of practice playing with grammar, vocabulary, and common usage rules. However, the site is clearly outdated in design, function, and game complexity. Tech-savvy kids may quickly lose interest because of the simplicity and lack of sophistication.

Additionally, though games are unsophisticated in design, many manage to have very complicated instructions that could be hard for kids to follow. There's little in-game help either for instruction or for related concepts. Although this isn't a teaching site, it would be nice to see some tutorials or guidance that would help kids master the English language.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
