Verbal Education, a breakthrough learning vocabulary system provider, today launched its online learning system and game-like interface, Verbal Education (www.verbaleducation.com), which effectively helps individuals commit SAT and ACT vocabulary words to memory in a speedy and interactive way. A memory retention system for vocabulary and developed from brain-based research, this program is based on the simple and fun practice of attaching what a person needs to learn (words) to what they already know. Fun and SAT preparation do not usually go together, but the revolutionary methods offered by Verbal Education change and improve the way students learn vocabulary and best equip them for SAT and ACT testing through a captivating and interactive platform for comprehension.
“There are eight specific techniques or mnemonics that work for vocabulary and Verbal Education teaches all of them while integrating the 400 high-frequency SAT and ACT words into players’ long-term memories in a fun, fast and effective way,” said Jeanne Clements, creator and founder of Verbal Education. “Just by playing a game, kids not only acquire core SAT words, they develop skills to learn hundreds more painlessly and permanently.”
An increased understanding of words and terms is invaluable to students as vocabulary is the cornerstone of reading, and reading is the foundation of all learning. The more words they know, the better readers they are and the more they learn.
“Verbal Education is the best tool I’ve ever used to learn vocabulary,” said Elizabeth Valvano who attends Princeton University. “It’s the only thing that showed me how to remember definitions.”
Nearly three million students take the SAT each academic year in more than 170 countries.1 Additionally, 49 percent (1,623,112 students) of United States high school graduates took the ACT in 2011, increasing the number of students who took the test by 25 percent from 2007 to 2011.2 Vocabulary adds at least 150 points to your SAT score, and Verbal Education teaches you those words in a fun, fast, and easy way. Vocabulary is 65 percent of your SAT Reading Score, and with Verbal Education students can effectively learn words to best position themselves for higher scores by increasing their vocabulary base. Memorizing lists of words for the SAT doesn’t work for everyone; Verbal Education does, because it doesn’t just teach you words and definitions, it shows you how to remember them. Students retain less than 15 percent of words they study from lists; retention with Verbal Education is over 85 percent.
The timing of the Verbal Education launch is optimal as many states will soon be implementing digital tests and educators are currently being asked to get students “technology ready.” Verbal Education enables students to be technologically ready to use the computer and online capabilities for educational purposes. A free demo of the learning system is available and the full content is cost-effective at just $99.00 for the first 90 days.
“I played Verbal Education with my kids and learned the words right along with them,” said Nancy Snyder, parent and teacher. “Then, I used the new words in my conversations with them and with my students. Verbal Education ended up helping everybody!”
Verbal Education’s proven techniques go further than preparing students for standardized tests. The program works for all words and grades, revolutionizing the way kids learn words and, therefore, the way kids learn to read. High level vocabulary knowledge will help students get better grades in high school, succeed in college, and perform well in the workplace. Because of the game-like interface, this program succeeds with students who have ADD or ADHD and those who speak English as a second language. The system also includes built-in functionality to provide progress reports for parents of students using the learning platform.
