Learn about our Systems

They use innovative computer-based programs in addition to printed materials and techniques which make learning easy. The ETL systems demonstrate multimedia, multisensory, multilevel learning at its best.

These systems supply sufficient enjoyable practice using learning materials that stimulate the brain enabling it to store and retrieve auditory, visual and motor-kinesthetic impressions. This results in prodigious amounts of sequential learning, much more than is usually acquired in conventional classrooms. These programs are designed to engage the students attention with less than one hour per daily session without homework.

Attention is given to comprehension through vocabulary building, the taking of dictation, and proofreading. The practical objective of Expressways To Reading is that the learner shall be able to read and comprehend any printed material appropriate to his/her level.

Expressways To Math


Expressways To Math makes use of the same A-VIP techniques used in Expressways To Reading. A-VIP is used to embed into permanent memory the fundamental facts of calculation.

Expressways To Math then exercises and integrates the accumulating memory base so that the learner can apply it to developing math skills through computer games, recitation to music and rhythms, and contests.

Level I simultaneously integrates number theory, counting, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division as applied to practical situations. The goal is to commit to memory the 400 math facts, to understand counting and number theory, and to be able to recall the facts for quick mental applications. When the math facts are thoroughly mastered, students often generate computational speeds that rival electronic calculators.

QuikComp


QuikComp includes 155 lessons offering 253 stories or topics. Its purpose is to develop comprehension through vocabulary study and the silent reading of graded text, teaching how to find and remember facts, main ideas, and to draw conclusions.

Increases Reading Rate

The computer delivers text at rates ranging from 120 to 2400 words per minute. At various intervals questions interrupt the text flow to test for comprehension, or the text may be read without questions. Most questions come at the end of the reading selection. The suggested goal of such training is to read at least 400 words per minute and maintain comprehension of 90% or better. Remarkable progress has been demonstrated in field tests, where most achieved their goals in as little as 25 one-hour sessions.

AdVocab


AdVocab increases vocabulary while improving spelling, focusing, and visual skills. Utilizing 20 different computer programs, the 131 lessons are based on thousands of multi-syllable words not taught in Expressways To Reading. Words are disassembled and reassembled giving root spellings and definitions and unlocking 1000's of partner words in the process. It is a learning system which disciplines the mind to think while combining meanings with word forms, often using game formats.

AdVocab is generally used with teens and adults and is expected to help increase SAT and ACT scores measurably. If a higher vocabulary and word knowledge correspond to higher incomes and better personal relationships, then AdVocab should be every serious learner's companion.
