Download Word Club App for Spelling Fun

July 27, 2020

Preparation for spelling competitions is easier than ever with the new Word Club app created by the Scripps National Spelling Bee.

Word Club is available to download for free on iPhone and Android devices and tablets. The initial app includes 50 study words. Once students advance to more words, there are options for in-app purchases including all-access to the 4,000-word study list, Words of the Champions.

The voice students will hear in the app is that of Dr. Jacques Bailly, pronouncer for the Bee. He recorded all 4,000 words along with alternate pronunciations for this project. The app replaces the Bee’s online browser-based version of Word Club.

The new Word Club has added features to keep students motivated to reach their spelling bee goals, whether they’re aiming for a classroom championship or a trip to the national finals. Within the app, they can set targets for the amount of time spent studying or number of words mastered, and they also earn virtual “bees” each time they spell or answer a question correctly. The bees make honey, and students who learn all 4,000 words can use that honey to fill a championship trophy to the brim while learning the words they need to succeed in spelling bees and in life.
