  1. Jessica C

    By far the best. I bought all the videos. My kids request them. All kids watch for fun as well as learning. My husband is pleased as well.

  2. Elizabeth M

    Kids LOVE watching we do it just for fun when bored.

  3. Corlia J

    Our favorite course by far! We love the presenter’s sense of humor and it is great to learn the root of the words. English is our second language and it really comes alive for us with this course.

  4. Candous L

    Hilarious! My kids couldn’t get enough. It’s filled with humor, so much so that my littles used to sit down to watch with their older siblings. I’m glad they added two more!!

  5. Rachel O

    It’s the best material for teasing grammar aged kids into learning ANYTHING (literature, history, English, even science) hands down. This course piques curiosity in knowledge, period. Buy it.

    My elementary kids absolutely love Dwane’s nonsensical vignettes and they haven’t forgotten a single root he’s taught them!!!

    Fun! Short and sweet! Enlightening in an educational way. My teens loved it. Hope the next one is coming soon. Highly recommended.

  10. Erin Castillo (verified owner)

    I have two 10th graders and a 7th grader (all boys) and they LOVE to watch WordUp! We even re-watch the episodes and they continue to enjoy them. Dwayne’s humor and visual cues/examples help the meanings “stick” and we are hoping he does another! Email us if he does and I will purchase the next one! Highly recommend this to all my homeschooling friends…

  11. Paula Lee Bright

    What an outstanding program for upper elementary through high school! My kids are constantly bargaining with me for this class instead of _________. It’s a real conundrum, because…we’re going to be out of lessons far too soon!

    We can’t wait for the next part of the (I hope) ongoing series.

    Fantastic teacher!

  12. Cathy Duffy

    This course bears no resemblance to other courses teaching Latin and Greek roots! Dwane’s teaching style is a cross between lecture and stand-up comedy…These are great fun to watch!”

    Word Up! has been a fun introduction to greek and latin word roots for both my DS grade 4 and my DD grade 7. Both enjoy watching the short videos and following up in the
    quizlet application.

    I love WordUp because it is very informative but not dry. It is like a TV show that can be watched over and over again because it’s fun and interesting.

    We have been using Word Up The Vocab Show for several months now, and it is something we look forward to each week. The videos are so funny, yet not at all cheesy, and my daughters (6th and 8th grade) look forward to us all watching them, sometimes two and three times just to laugh. We then use the quizlet flashcards to review the rest of the week and the girls take their quiz online when they are ready and then print it out! The ease of this program for mommas and the fun and engaging nature of it for the kids makes it a favorite in
    our house!!!
