With Barron’s, learning vocabulary becomes fun. In Painless Vocabulary, students learn the meanings of new words by seeing them used in amusing contexts, find examples of vocabulary for modern technology, learn Greek and Latin word roots, track progress with challenging games, and more.
Geared toward middle school– and high school–level learners, Painless Vocabulary takes a lighthearted, humorous approach to learning vocab and is ideal for students who find it confusing, or who just need a little extra help.
Students can test their learning progress with quizzes and “Brain Ticklers”, plus additional games online to challenge students, including Beat the Clock, a line match game, and a word scramble.
The authors' main goal is to clear up confusion and pique interest by emphasizing the intriguing and often exciting ways in which students can put each subject to practical use.
