AdVocab is often used to increase SAT and ACT scores measurably. Since higher vocabulary and word knowledge correspond to higher incomes and better personal relationships, AdVocab should be every serious learner’s companion.

AdVocab increases vocabulary while improving spelling, focusing and visual skills.  Utilizing 20 different computer programs, the 131 lessons are based on the thousands of multi-syllable words not taught in Expressways To Reading®.

Words are disassembled and reassembled giving root spellings and definitions and unlocking 1000’s of partner words in the process. It is a learning system which disciplines the mind to think while combining meanings with word forms, often using game formats.
