Food for Thought: Vocab Videos SAT Vocab Definition Groups

To make it easier to help our users learn SAT and ACT vocabulary, we’ve illustrated the meanings of words using short, silly videos (check out some samples!). What you might not know until you register for Vocab Videos is that we also offer an array of study tools and resources to help you better understand word meanings. One such study tool is our Vocab Videos Definition Groups List (found under the blue “Study Resources” tab when logged-in to your account).

These category lists group words by common themes. It provides students with a valuable reference and allows for an even more comprehensive understanding of the SAT vocabulary. These definition groups are useful for helping students grasp subtle differences in meanings and when to use particular words.

Take a look at our definition groups and the words that are included in each below (along with some fun”food for thought” images that correspond with each category). To watch the videos for all of these words, learn their definitions, and check out our study tools be sure to register for Vocab Videos!
