This implementation of eyeVocab Latin covers the high frequency vocabulary, 292 words, from the pullout in Clyde Pharr's Vergil's Aeneid: Books I-VI.
Far more than a set of electronic flashcards, the multimodal vocabulary program facilitates a significantly deeper learning and retention. Students will readily master the frequent Vergil vocabulary thereby devote far more of their study time and energy to reading and discussing 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.
The basis of the power of this method: eyeVocab Essential Principles.
