About This Course

Published 2/2015 English

Course Description


If your child is doing poorly at school an inadequate vocabulary could be the problem.

Your child’s ability to use his given language is the key to all his learning.

The more words a child knows, the greater that child’s success.

Taking this course is a potential vocabulary boost of 1000 words for your son or daughter!


Just learning 10 words can expose a person to 90 more.

Technically your child is being deliberately exposed to 100 words because this course teaches how to make 50 nouns from 50 verbs. 10 x (10 + 90) = 1000 words

Raising smart children just got easier

If you have ever imagined sitting with pride in the audience watching your child receive an award for good work at the end of the school year, then you must act now.

If you start immediately, working diligently on your child's vocabulary, you could start to see improvement within the next year that will last him a lifetime.

We're making it easy for you by removing all the hard work usually associated with helping your child succeed at school.

The time consuming tasks of doing research on the Internet, looking for worksheets and trying to figure out answers have been done for you.

You will find everything you need in one place.

Use the course materials to rapidly improve your child’s vocabulary
Your ward can learn as many as 10 words in a single day.

Apart from the video lectures showing how to make each noun from each verb, there are also video lectures showing how to use each word formed in a sentence.

There are puzzles and games to accelerate learning.

But there is more…

Because you the parent need to be satisfied that learning is taking place, at the end of each section there is a quiz for you to check your child’s progress.

…and more

We go one step further and provide a posttest app that randomly generates 20 questions related to the 50 nouns taught.

The app can be separately downloaded to an iPad or Android and used anytime, anywhere without an internet connection.

The test will be different each time you take it so it can be used multiple times now and in the future as revision to keep your protégé sharp.

How this course is organized
You will know exactly what your child is learning because one of the first lectures is a Parent’s Reference Guide listing all the word formations that make up this course.

The sections for you also include details of the steps necessary to make the best use of the course, answers to the puzzles and games and how to access the posttest app that you will use to be sure that your son or daughter is ready to move on to the next 50 words.

The remaining sections, the teaching sections, contain the meat of the course. Each section teaches 10 words. There are 5 teaching sections. Each one contains:

Instructor Biography

Dova Lael Inc., eLearning anytime, anywhere

Dova Lael Inc. specializes in creating quality eLearning resources

Our mission is to empower even the busiest of parents, to still play their part in helping their children age 9 to 12 achieve academic success, by producing high quality, engaging, mobile learning resources ideal for the active parent and child

To this end we produce educational apps for the iPad, Android and Kindle, some of which have already been published in the Amazon Appstore

Most of our apps can be used on the go and because we know that parents are active and busy, along with each course, we also create Parent's Reference Guides that tell you exactly what your child will be learning. You can also use these guides as a quick refresher or to learn the topic outright if you are unfamiliar with it

We are the publishers of the “Teach Your Child and Yourself" series. This series currently covers only homophones (words that sound the same, but have different spellings and different meanings) but will be expanded to include other topics integral to your child's academic success

Our lead developer has been through a rigorous course in teacher training, has over 25 years teaching experience and holds a degree in physics and computer science from a recognized university as well as a post graduate Diploma in Education

We are confident that we can shave hours of work off your task of helping your child excel at school
