We develop visual tools that make it possible to quickly see the relationship between words.  Brain and learning studies have proven that when multiple parts of the brain are activated, we learn faster.  If we can "picture" the words, we can remember them easier.  That is why we developed our breakthrough method of grouping words to make it fast and easy to really expand your vocabulary.  This method makes it possible to visually see the difference between the most common usages of the word.  Ready for an example?

 Cute pretty      beautiful   gorgeous  handsome

All of these words mean "good looking".  But because we've added different fonts, sizes and colors, now you can visualize the difference between these words.

Look at the size of the font and it will give you the relationship in "quantity" for the word.  For example, pretty is more than cute, gorgeous is more than beautiful.  The style of the font hints at the usages.  A standard "classic" font implies a general word that may be used in any audience or description. A fancy font implies feminity to; a no-frills font implies masculinity. (This does NOT mean these words can only be used with females or males.  For example, we can say a woman is handsome.  We can say a man is pretty.  But even so, a handsome woman typically is not "frilly".)

 In addition to providing the visualization, we also provide details. 

These words are always compliments.

Cute - Typically used to describe young people or animals (babies, children, young women).  If this word is used for adults or things, it implies youthfulness. 

pretty - Can be used any time, anywhere.  We do tend to use this word more with females than males.  

beautiful  More than pretty, this word can be used anytime, anywhere.  Uses:  people, animals, things, places. 

gorgeous  More than beautiful, this word can be used anytime, anywhere.  Uses:  people, animals, things, places

handsome Most commonly used to describe good look male people or animals.  This word can be also be used to describe good-looking "non-frilly" women and things.
