New Vocabulary Program — eyeVocab

eyeVocab maximizes state-of-the-art technology and revolutionizes second language vocabulary acquisition. 

Far more than a set of electronic flashcards, the multimodal vocabulary program facilitates a significantly deeper learning and retention. Students will readily master vocabulary and thereby devote far more of their study time and energy to reading and analyzing the Aeneid.

eyeVocab leverages memory for graphically distinctive and emotionally affective images with narrative implications, presented in isolation and combined with phonologically emphasized sound, to establish long-term declarative knowledge of the vocabulary presented.

eyeVocab has provided impressive results in Latin, Arabic, Spanish, and Mandarin at the middle school, high school, and university levels, including university intensive courses in Latin and Arabic as well as Arabic intensive courses funded by the US State Department. These results far exceed those attained employing all other methods of vocabulary learning.

  • powerful images drawn from art, both western and eastern, through the ages, from photojournalism and historical photography, from great book illustrations, and from other sources
  • each vocabulary word is carefully articulated with macrons in the classical pronunciation
  • multisensory program draws on visual, auditory, and tactile learning as well as subvocalizing that collectively hardwire the new vocabulary in student’s long-term memory
  • for use in the classroom, language lab, or at home
The basis of the power of this method: eyeVocab's Essential Principles.
