WHAT WOULD YOU SAY IF WE TOLD YOU ACADEMIC SUCCESS WAS ONLY A WORD AWAY?
Well, it’s more like a few hundred words away – but all things considered, that’s not very much, is it?
Vocabulary is critical to your academic success.
Think for a minute. How many times have the following situations happened
You have trouble expressing a relatively simple idea in a paper.
You lose a debate because the other speaker is better able to share their ideas.
You dread speaking in public because you lack confidence you can come up with the right ideas at the right time.
You struggle to make a lasting impression when you meet people who matter.
If any of the above situations sound familiar, chances are you could benefit from a vocabulary program that works.

DID YOU KNOW THAT ONLY 29 WORDS CAN PREDICT YOUR ACADEMIC SUCCESS IN COLLEGE?
It true. A University of Illinois professor, William D. Templeman, proved he could accurately identify the students most likely to achieve college success through a simple 29-word vocabulary test.
Moreover, a different, multi-university study showed that students who took a vocabulary course when they entered college performed better in a variety of subjects throughout their academic careers.
As you can imagine, vocabulary also matters a great deal on entrance exams and standardized tests that directly assess student understanding of words and their use.
What does this tell us about vocabulary?
That it is critical to academic success, and that you can easily gain an advantage over your peers in school and later in life simply by improving it.
YOUR IQ IS INEXTRICABLY LINKED TO YOUR VOCABULARY.
Just as your success in academia hinges on your understanding of the English language, so does your overall level of intelligence.
In his book The Nature of Vocabulary Acquisition, Yale University Professor Robert J. Sternberg claimed that vocabulary could predict a person’s intelligence more accurately than any other single measure.
As he put it, “if one wants a quick and not-too- dirty measure of a person’s psychometrically measured intelligence, and thus has time to give just one brief test of it, vocabulary is generally the best predictor of overall score on a psychometric IQ test.”
The number of words you can understand directly correlates with your reading effectiveness, which in turn correlates with your understanding of a wide variety of subjects. When you comprehend
words, you can:
Read more quickly and more deeply
Use them to provide context for even more complex words that you don’t yet know
Use them in your own writing and speaking
Engage more readily with other intelligent people
That doesn’t mean, however, that all vocabulary approaches are effective. They aren’t.
THERE’S A BETTER WAY TO IMPROVE YOUR VOCABULARY SKILLS.
Enhance your reading, writing and speaking skills in as little as 10 minutes a day.
If you’ve struggled to build your vocabulary before, and haven’t seen much success, you may feel skeptical that any vocabulary course can be the answer.
The problem with many standard approaches? How about these:
Flash cards only work while you’re holding them in your hand.
Your vocabulary prowess fades as soon as the standardized test or classroom quiz is behind you.
You recognize words when you read them, but you’re not sure how precisely to use them in your own writing or speaking.
“Word of the Day” emails lack context and application.
Pulling out the thesaurus every time you sit down to write is slow and ineffective … and still doesn’t guarantee you use words correctly.
Not fun, right?

YOUR VOCABULARY IS BETTER THAN YOU MIGHT THINK.
If you have studied for entrance exams or taken vocabulary courses, you likely already have a good handle on the English language.
The problem is those words are trapped in your passive vocabulary. In other cases, while you are more than capable of learning new words, they just head straight to your passive vocab, where you can’t access them easily.
In order to succeed in school and life, you need ready access to old and new words that will help you engage with course materials and communicate with people who matter.
Unfortunately, previous methods of deepening your language skills might not have worked for you, but we’ll change that. Vocabulary Zone is all about:
Accessing words that are already in your passive vocabulary, or words you understand but don’t yet know how to use yourself
Ensuring new words get placed at the front of your brain, in your active vocabulary
Whipping them out quickly, when you actually need them – during the test or in front of your professor
Ditching the flash cards and outdated word lists
Spending a little time each day for a huge reward
Communicating well and having a powerful vocabulary is about using just the right word at the right
time. It’s time you gave yourself the gift of a better lexicon.
WHAT DOES VOCABULARY ZONE DO THAT OTHER PROGRAMS DON’T?
It gives you full access to the words that already exist in your vocabulary.
If you are above-average intelligence, then your word knowledge is already extensive. You just need the right coaching to move old words from your passive to your active vocabulary, and to ensure that new words get placed firmly at the front of your brain, in the active vocabulary zone.
Through a variety of lessons using the latest neuroscience research and advanced language techniques, we help you put those words in the right place, so you can use them whenever you want.
Your vocabulary moves from part of your brain where it lives in obscurity to the part
where you can use it every day.
When that happens … you’re “in the zone.”
The Vocabulary Zone.

HOW DO YOU GET IN THE ZONE?
What does Vocabulary Zone do then to ensure your increased proficiency with the English language?
In addition to moving words from your passive vocabulary to your active vocabulary, most students also learn several hundred new words that were not yet in their passive vocabulary.
We will teach you words that you will:
See in your reading and textbooks
Hear from professors in lectures
Need in order to engage with your classmates and your own writing
Net you new opportunities
Other programs help you memorize definitions and give you a superficial understanding of words.
We teach complete mastery so you know exactly when, where and how to use each word in proper, modern context.
WHAT’S THE TAKEAWAY?
We are the only program that helps you build and expand your active vocabulary by ensuring you can access those words at any time.
The result is a powerful word bank on which you can rely on for spur-of- the-moment comments and responses, making you appear smarter to
those who matter and actually increasing your
intelligence at the same time.
Suddenly, you’ll read better, write more effectively and
speak with greater eloquence.
It’s not hard to see how this applies to college and university. When you can impress professors, keep up with the best students in your class and connect with prospective employers, your level of accomplishment will skyrocket.
