- How to think in logical fashion about words and their meanings.
- A few roots that give them the keys to hundreds of words.
- How to read and understand as well as express themselves more concisely

The first "A" lessons take approximately 20-30 minutes; the other lessons should not take more than 15 minutes per lesson. Weekly tests can take 20-30 minutes.
Four possible schedules are included for one-year, 18-months, two-years, and self-paced options. At approximately 30 minutes per lesson, five days per week, the course will take one-and-a-half years.
