    Lasting RESULTS

    A word turns into vocabulary as you learn it “by heart.” It’s that moment when you no longer have to think about it before you use it.

    Once you reach this level of “automaticity,” the word is yours forever. You will never forget it.

    LearnThatWord is the only fully managed solution that builds this automaticity.

    You’ll meet each word repeatedly over time and explore its nuances and “flavors.” Our multimedia resources bring words to life.

    Proven study methods, accelerated by adaptive and individualized coaching, make words “stick.” New words turn into vocabulary that moves you forward.

    We are so confident in the results, we guarantee them!

For the 2010/11 school year, for example, we launched Vocabulary Junction, making free vocabulary tutoring available to third graders throughout the U.S. and Canada.

The Word Cup event is on hold awaiting suitable sponsorship.

Please sign up for an email invitation.

Of course, we will use your email only for that purpose and otherwise keep it under lock.
