About Vocab Videos:

Vocab Videos is an online vocabulary system for students and educators that uses hilarious short videos to illustrate the meanings of 500 high value, frequently-tested SAT, ACT, & high school vocabulary words. The vocabulary learning videos were developed by a team of SAT and standardized test experts and produced using professional actors and comedians. The vocabulary videos are organized into episodes of 20 words (approximately 10 minutes), forming short stories with memorable characters and entertaining plots.

Each video follows a structure designed to make memorizing easier, using both auditory and visual cues. A freeze frame of the vocabulary word and its definition generally start each video, while a voice-over provides the proper pronunciation and reinforces the meaning. The vocabulary word is then illustrated by the action in the video (approximately 30 seconds), and concludes with a voice-over of either the definition of the word or a sentence using the word in the context of the scene.
