  1. Debra B

    This program is amazing. This is the best vocabulary program I’ve seen. I love the theme approach of using a Latin and Greek root for the same word and exploring derivatives. Even with vocabulary words that are already familiar, the format of looking at the Latin/Greek roots helps to teach how to figure out unfamiliar vocabulary. I particularly like that there are flashcard exercises available to continue to work with the vocab after the video lesson. Dwane Thomas, as usual, makes it so my kids are laughing and learning, so telling them we’re going to do vocabulary isn’t met with groans and “Do we HAVE to?”

  2. Melissa R

    THE BEST EVER!!!! I WOULD USE MORE OF ANY SUBJECT LIKE THIS!!!

  3. Katie W (verified owner)

    This is the joy of our home school! We use it as a special weekly treat; the kids think Duane Thomas is hilarious, and we find the new words intriguing.

  4. Ariana C

    A fun way to study. When I was in fifth grade, we had to make “cognate cards” – index cards with a Latin or Greek root on one side, and words and definitions with that root on the other. In comparison, this is SUCH an engaging way to teach students vocab words to prepare for tests and improve their writing.

  5. Dachelle M.

    Love it! My daughter loves this. It is funny, engaging and exciting. She also enjoys the Quizlet games after the video.

  6. Cathy

    These are great fun to watch!

  7. Cathy

    Dwane’s teaching style is a cross between lecture and stand-up comedy.

  8. Kristi

    Dwane Thomas, the host of Word Up! (and Visual Latin) is funny and engaging with the kids.

  9. Kristi

    Word Up! The Vocab Show is simple and easy to use. Watch. Quiz. Review as needed.
