|1 How old must a student be to use this program?
The program works best with seventh graders through adults.
2 If I buy this for my teenager to use at home, do I need to watch the videos with him?
No, but it's a great idea! A lot of parents tell us how much they enjoy watching and expanding their own vocabularies.
3 What if English is the student's second language?
What's the Word? is an excellent learning tool for transitional ESL. Pilot studies at North Dallas High School, where over 50 nationalities are represented, showed that students improved their vocabulary usage by an average of 300 percent (based on pre- and post-tests).
4 Does this program build in level of difficulty?
No. However, it's important to begin with Volume 1 because What's the Word? uses words from previous lessons throughout the course to reinforce learning.
5 May I return it if it doesn't work?
Of course! But we are so convinced that it WILL work that we offer a risk-free, money-back guarantee if you are not satisfied for any reason.
