    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!

Literacy — can you count its many blessings?

Ideas ...   prosperity ...   joy ...  

understanding ...   opportunities ...

inspiration ... security... progress...

What have words brought to your life?

Please think for a moment about
how literacy has shaped and transformed
your own life.

Imagine the life of someone
who struggles with reading and writing,
making learning
a slow and painful process.

What would your life have been like
without the ability to read fluently?
What if you had to get by on
a limited vocabulary of
a few thousand words only?

How would your life have evolved
without being able to write
with ease and confidence?

What would your opportunities in life
have looked like, if you lived in
an underserved community,
your parents did not speak English well,
and you had no one to practice with you?

"My father told me once
that words and letters
hold the secrets
of the universe."

Eliza, in the movie Bee Season
