Course Description

WHO ELSE WANTS SMARTER KIDS?

If your child is failing at school, poor 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 500 words for your son or daughter!

How?

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

Technically your child is being deliberately exposed to 50 words because this course teaches how to make 25 nouns from 25 verbs. 5 x (10 + 90) = 500 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 15 questions related to the 25 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. There are 3 teaching sections. Each one contains:

• A video lecture showing how each word is converted to its corresponding noun
• A video lecture showing how to use each word in a sentence
• Puzzles and games to help your child master the material
• An end of section quiz to check that your ward knows how to use the 10 words in the section

With your encouragement your child would be on the way to a better command of the English language and better grades in school.

What are the requirements?

  • Parents, we appreciate that you are busy. Our courses are therefore designed to provide you with sufficient material to help your child learn the topic presented without having to do anything additional.
  • Your role is therefore expected to be purely supervisory. That is you encourage your ward to use the materials as often and as much as necessary to master the topic.
  • If you wish to use the posttest app that is provided free with this course offline, you must have an iPad or Android device (not Kindle). For this you will require the free Articulate Mobile Player. Download details are provided.
  • If you prefer, the app can be used online with any device with an Internet connection including the Kindle.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Form 25 nouns from 25 verbs. See the word list in lecture 3
  • Spell the 25 words covered in this course
  • Use the 25 words presented in a sentence

What is the target audience?

  • This course is intended for busy parents who still want to play their part in helping their 9 - 12 year old be among the top performers at school
  • Teachers of 9 to 12 year olds and ESL students may also find it useful
  • This course is not for parents looking for a quick fix. Progress takes time
  • Parents who Do NOT want to help their child achieve academic success should definitely not take this course

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
