Contextual Vocabulary Learning

Contextual Learning by Example

The human brain does not learn well by definition alone and reading comprehension is one of the most difficult things to master. Providing a context for each new vocabulary word is perhaps more important than the definition, because the brain is constantly evaluating the meaning and usage of a word in relation to the words around it. You've probably already discovered this for yourself when encountering a never-before-seen vocabulary word and successfully inferring its meaning from the surrounding words, phrases, and clauses. In order to cement your learning of each new vocabulary word, we provide a list of sentences to go along with each word. Build your vocabulary in the proper context.
