Most vocabulary programs are tiring, arduous, and ... completely ineffective. The reason: "Teaching" a word is not enough. Learning vocabulary is only to a limited degree a rational process, and largely a pattern-building, practice-based process. And for practice to be effective, it requires follow up in a personalized manner until the student has really gained automaticity.
Automaticity is a term used in neuroscience that describes a moment when you no longer have to think to retrieve knowledge, it's hardwired into your mind, so you can use it effortlessly and easily, without stopping to think about it.
Vocabulary more than anything else requires automaticity to be of value. At LearnThatWord it's what we focus on all day long. The goal is to help learners build automaticity quickly and effectively. The new upgrade will add more quiz modules that focus on usage and meaning of words, and lots of colorful, fun ways to interact with words.
Everyone at LearnThat.org is very excited about taking the new quiz for a first spin: it's fun and nicely addictive!
