Our Philosophy:

Education and Learning should not be forced but rather natural and seamless. Concepts and ideas should have meaningful context that is relevant and beneficial. We believe that Phocabulary solves this very problem with learning challenging vocabulary.

Traditional methods of word memory and retention are boring and ineffective. We believe we can change that by using the amazing web and social media coupled with popular ideas all infuse in a photo to spark memory association.

Some photos may be funny, others are witty, few are provoking, plus everything in between to make a memorable impression for you to simply know the words and retain for use in everyday life. Whether studying for tests or pure exploration, words represent profound ideas that should be appreciated in context. Add and Share with others and improve learning.

Feel Free to Suggest A Word in the Application. We will share it!
