Google Word Coach Full Score Trick

Now, let’s learn about a trick using which you can get a full score, every time on Word Coach.

We know that there are three types of questions asked in the Word Coach quiz:

  1. To match a word with its synonym (similar meaning words)
  2. To match a word with its antonym (opposite meaning words)
  3. To match a word with an image that represents it

For questions of the first type, i.e. to match a word with its synonym, you can simply look up “[the given word] synonyms” on a new Google search tab, and then match your options with the given list of synonyms.

For questions of the second type, i.e. to match a word with its antonym, you can similarly look up “[the given word] antonyms” on a new Google search tab and match the given options with the list of the antonyms.

For questions of the third type, i.e. to match a word with a given word, you can use the Google Reverse Image Search Tool to look up the given images, find their meaning, and choose the correct option accordingly.

This way, you can ensure that you get a full score on Google Word Coach, every time you play it!

Having the highest score on Google Word Coach will surely allow you to brag among your friends and family, but it is not recommended to use the trick all the time as then you wouldn’t tend to remember any actual knowledge!
