Ideal for people who are already at an upper beginner/intermediate level, Clozemaster will help you build your vocabulary and learn new words and sentences in context. While you won’t learn much grammar or improve your speaking and writing much, it is great at what it does and the videogame aspect makes it fun and addictive to work though. Although the exercises are all pretty much identical, there are various ways in which you can increase the difficulty and Clozemaster’s free account is almost as good as the Pro User one.
Very easy to use with thousands upon thousands of sentences for you to work through, Clozemaster’s main exercises are well-designed though some features are a bit hit and miss.
Although you aren’t given any explanations, Clozemaster’s huge database of sentences allows you to learn words in context.
The free version offers a ton of value, but for those who use Clozemaster regularly, it may be worth upgrading to a Pro account.
- There is an insane number of words and sentences for you to learn, and you’re exposed to them within the context of a sentence.
- Just using the free account you are sure to learn a lot with only some extra (and undoubtedly useful) features being included in the Pro plan. This makes learning accessible to everyone.
- Lots of languages available to learn, and you can do so from a wide range of languages, making it very useful for non-native English speakers or those who want to study two languages at once.
I Don’t Like
- A couple of features such as the Cloze-reading and the speaking exercises seemed like they could have benefited from a bit more thought and effort put into them.
- There is no real progression and you are basically given an endless array of different words and sentences to work through and the various exercises are all pretty much identical.
- Sentences are sourced from
The free version is very useful, but you can upgrade to a pro account for $8/month or $60/year.
Having never heard of Clozemaster before and having no idea what it was all about, I was immediately taken by its videogame-looking aesthetics and fun fill-in-the-missing-words exercises.…
