Vocabulary is the biggest indicator of academic potential

The more rare words your child knows, the higher their reading and writing age, and the better they'll do at school.

Children learn better visually, and a word-a-day habit is the best way to build a strong vocabulary. Learn together in minutes a day: at breakfast, on the move, before bed.
