Update received 20th April: WordEngine reports that their system is now functioning properly.
I believe that V-check is now properly functioning, and that people who had problems with v-check before should be able to retake it. If there are still any problems, please contact WordEngine directly in English or Japanese, or me (in English).
Update received 19th April: They are still experiencing some critical errors. I’m sorry to say, if you haven’t done your V-check, hopefully all will be good for you to try again Friday.
Thanks to the three students who have asked about this. I didn’t know that this year the system is so different. Last year, WordEngine was an app to download, and a card to buy for students who don’t have their own credit cards. This year, I was told in an email in early March that the system is different and works on all smartphones, tablets and computers. They did not say that there is no smartphone app for iOS or Android anymore. The steps:
- In your web browser (Safari, Chrome, Firefox, Brave, etc)
- Type wordengine.jp, press “Go” or “Enter”. You should arrive at http://www.wordengine.jp/go/ and,
- Bookmark it, or Add to Favourites.
Now, just use WordEngine from the website; no app needed. Yay!
Next steps (at home):
- Do V-check (to get your vocabulary size)
- Enter your card code for paid access
- Join the class group
- Study each week, Monday to Saturday at least 150 correct answers each week (about 10 minutes a day)
