Welcome to the world of humorous cartoons that introduce proven mnemonic memory techniques into the vocabulary learning experience. Vocabulary Cartoons provides word associations and visual images that make study easy and entertaining.
The effectiveness of vocabulary mnemonics as a faster, easier learning tool has been established in six independent school tests in Southwest Florida involving hundreds of students at different grade levels. Over all students with Vocabulary Cartoons scored an average 72% higher marks than did the control students who used rote memory study books.
Extend the learning by encouraging your child to create their own mnemonics as they come across unfamiliar words. They'll build vocabulary, memory and creative thinking.
