How to play
First you need to activate Google Word Coach by searching word definitions and translation or “Word Coach” in Google Search. It only appears in Non-US country and only available on mobile phones (formerly checked by me).
Every “round” of Google Word Coach game will contain 5 questions and you need to choose an answer between two words or images. You can also skip the question too.
You will get 120-160 marks for every corrected answer. You will earn a generous 500 marks for every corrected answer instead of 180 marks if you see a You looked this up +500 in the upper right corner. It will appear if you have chosen the wrong answer for this question before.
There are formerly 2 levels in Google Word Coach. You will level up if you answer all 5 questions correctly in a Level 1 round. As a result, you will see a “Level up” message if you meet the level up requirement. You will start at Level 1 in the beginning. Note Level 2 is harder than Level 1. You earn 160 points per question in Level 2 and 120 points per question in Level 1. Sometimes you can earn up to 180 points!
There are 3 question types in Google Word Coach.
- Which word is similar to (word)?
- Which word is opposite to (word)?
- Which image best fits the word (word)?
My experience is the “image” question is always the easiest.
