Acquire - The Vocabulary Study Program

Executive Summary
The language learning industry is a quickly growing market, with companies like Rosetta Stone reaching annual revenues of over $250 million. An essential part of mastering a new language is building a working vocabulary to both understand and be understood in the new language. Research suggests that language learners may need to be exposed to a new word up to 16 times before that word is learned. The Acquire vocabulary learning program provides a systematic way for the language learner to take control of his or her vocabulary study. Users can review vocabulary by topic, difficulty, or last-reviewed date, or they can study a random combination of words. The user determines the vocabulary studied, including giving priority to more difficult words and tracking the date that each word was last studied to ensure words are not neglected. Lastly, at the end of each study session, Acquire sends the list of the day’s vocabulary to the user’s email so the language user can study their vocabulary from their smartphone throughout the day.
