    Excellent comprehensive course. It is laid out well, in depth and easy to use, for all ages. The only drawback is the spiral binding. If it were anything but it would be 5 star, but the binding is cheap. Thankfully you can put it all into a binder (in page protectors) because you will use it that much. Excellent!

    I heard about this some ten years ago and my then highschool daughter used it and my second daughter,both now in college. Presently, I am going through it again with my other children in a group setting they are 16, 12, 10, & 8. They enjoy it greatly. We mixed this with the Rummy Roots game. They understand the meaning of words to a deeper degree and therefore comprehension has increased in their daily reading along with spelling in their papers.

    This program lists 100 words from Greek and Latin that are commonly used to form English words. Lesson one is "photos," which is Greek for light. The lesson lists seven English words in which "photos" is used. It also gives the Greek or Latin meaning for the other part of the words listed. For instance, on the photos page are listed the words, "photograph," "phototropic," and "photosynthesis." Graph is defined as "write or draw," and tropic as "turn." Synthesis is broken down to "syn," meaning together and "thesis" for putting. (So photosynthesis means a process of putting things together by using light.)There are a few teaching notes with each word which would enable parents of younger or mixed ages to stretch out the study of each word thus giving time to learn each one well. There are also extra words listed for the older or more inquisitive student.We have our son copy the word of the day and its various English usages in his own dictionary. Then he makes a flashcard with the root on one side and the meaning on the other. He reviews all of his flashcards daily.The best part of the program: our 11 year old son is thoroughly enjoying it. He is easily retaining each word and is enjoying encountering words in his everyday life that he can break down and make educated guesses as to their meanings. It also seems to be beneficial to his spelling. He is only a quarter into it and already looking forward to tackling the next volume.The only reason I rated it less than five stars: it seems slightly overpriced. But it is non-consumable so that does help justify the cost.I recommend this highly and plan to use it with all six of my children.
