Accelerating vocabulary growth

for all students.

Build vocabulary in no more than

15 minutes per day.

Build student vocabulary in a flash.

In no more than 15 minutes per day, English in a Flash helps low-vocabulary students learn the high-frequency (e.g.,

monkey), low-frequency (e.g., orangutan) and content-area (e.g., mammal) vocabulary necessary for classroom success.

By focusing on vocabulary words before placing them in context, students with low vocabulary—including English

Learners (ELs)—improve listening, speaking, reading, and writing in English, for greater achievement in English language

arts, math, science, and social studies. As students progress through lessons, quizzes, and reviews, teachers get instant

feedback to personalize instruction, provide encouragement, and intervene effectively.

Reports help teachers monitor vocabulary

acquisition, determine class progress, keep

parents involved, and guide students to

appropriate books that are interesting and

keep students on the path to college and

career readiness.

English in a Flash helps students:

• Learn vocabulary effectively and efficiently

in no more than 15 minutes a day.

• Develop their content-area vocabulary so

they can succeed with academic standards.

• Begin their study at the appropriate

vocabulary levels.

• Focus on vocabulary while learning

grammatical structures implicitly.

• Improve listening, speaking, reading, and

writing in English.

Help students construct a solid

vocabulary foundation.

English in a Flash quickly builds listening vocabulary,

increasing listening comprehension skills, building

phonics and phonemic awareness capacity, and

filling gaps in core subject vocabulary knowledge:

• Content-Area Vocabulary

Students learn the content-area vocabulary

required for success in language arts, math,

biology, chemistry, history, and other subjects.

• Conversational Vocabulary

Students learn conversational vocabulary

that helps them communicate effectively with

classmates and teachers.

• Grammatical Structure

Once students have learned the vocabulary in

a lesson, those words are combined into short

phrases, sentences, and dialogues.

Personalized instruction leads to student success.

Key features of English in a Flash include:

• Individualization: Assesses the learner’s listening vocabulary and places the student in correct English in a Flash

Library and Chapter using a Test-Out feature.

• Academic Vocabulary: Ensures all low-vocabulary students are provided multiple opportunities to learn individual

words, and to learn how academic words are used in context.

• Listening Comprehension: Builds listening comprehension that supports reading comprehension by providing the

learner with large amounts of comprehensible input.

• Standards-Based Activities: Incorporates listening, speaking, reading, and writing activities that reinforce

vocabulary and grammatical structures.

• Accelerated Reader Integration: Provides students a depth of vocabulary that supports reading of Accelerated

Reader books. As a result, the number of books students read increases with vocabulary practice.

How does English in a Flash work?

English in a Flash first teaches

vocabulary words before placing them

in grammatical context, as shown on

the diagram to the right. Learners are

provided with comprehensible input

consisting of multiple exposures to

vocabulary and grammatical structures.

4,000+ words are taught directly and

1,500+ words are taught indirectly.
