Vocab Videos Brings Humor and Entertainment to Standardized Test Preparation and Education through Technology

Vocab Videos Introduces Entertaining Videos to Improve Comprehension and Retention of Difficult SAT Vocabulary Words

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–A-List Education, experts in standardized test preparation, academic tutoring and college admissions advising, announced today the launch of Vocab Videos, an entertaining and effective learning system that brings vocabulary to life. Leveraging humor, pop culture and engaging characters, Vocab Videos helps increase student understanding and retention of vocabulary words through verbal, auditory and visual cues. Vocab Videos teaches students more than 500 of the most frequently tested vocabulary words found in advanced high school English classes and on college admissions tests such as the SAT and ACT.

Recognizing the difficulty many students have learning new words through conventional means, A-List created Vocab Videos after intense analysis and research. This unique teaching system employs proven educational methodologies and helps connect high school students with the content and expand their vocabulary, while entertaining them along the way.

Parodies of popular television shows such as Lost, The Office, 24 and Gossip Girl appeal to students by making the content relevant, memorable and compelling. Students develop a more sophisticated understanding of vocabulary words and usage through Vocab Videos as compared to traditional methods, such as flashcards, that only promote short-term memorization.

Scott Farber, President of A-List explains, “I’ve worked with thousands of students and have seen firsthand how beneficial it can be to infuse educational materials with elements of entertainment and multimedia. Vocab Videos gets students excited about learning and parents and teachers see the positive results. We provide the necessary tools for students to excel in the vocabulary sections of standardized tests, including the SAT, ISEE, ACT and GRE.”

Vocab Videos offers a Web-based service with subscriptions available for $9.99 per month or $49.99 for a six-month subscription. Subscribers have unlimited access to content on the Vocab Videos website, including quizzes, review materials and video clips. (DVDs of Vocab Videos will soon be available on Amazon.com.)

A-List also offers Web portal customization and licensing agreements for teachers, educational institutions, and non-profit organizations enabling them to incorporate Vocab Videos into existing curricula. Vocab Videos can be used to enhance daily curricula, assist with standardized test preparation and generally prepare students for college. Schools and non-profit educational organizations throughout the United States are successfully instituting the Vocab Videos system.
