Yes! Though there haven’t been studies on my exact method, Vocabbett is grounded both in peer-reviewed research and my own personal experience as a teacher and student.
What you get out depends on what you put in! Studies show that most people need to encounter a new word approximately eight times in order to learn it. You’d be surprised how quickly you can get those impressions, but you do have to show up for it to work!
I often suggest some time between 7th-9th grade. Because my method is story-based, it’s not designed for binging. Rather, it’s best if you start early and make Vocabbett a part of your life, listening to the podcast twice a week and reading new stories as they come out. That way, when the SAT rolls around, you’ll be in great shape to tackle a huge percentage of the test!
I’m SOOOO glad you asked! Aside from the extraordinary benefits to your SAT scores, having a strong vocabulary gives you an incredible advantage in college (believe me, you’ll be happy you know the words in the hundreds of pages you’re constantly assigned!). And once you enter the “real world,” a strong vocabulary can give you a leg up in business. Want to be a doctor, lawyer, teacher, financier…? Yeah, there are a lot of “big words” involved in those jobs! A strong vocabulary can even make it easier to learn a foreign language, and so much more!
