English Vocabulary Launch: Upgrade your speaking is, as you might have guessed, about improving vocabulary. The course is from the same author of English Grammar Launch and English Grammar Launch Advanced so, as I liked them, I gave it a try.
The "joke, fact & quote" idea is not bad in theory, but the jokes are a) terrible and b) way too "deeply" explained up to the point they feel like a waste of time. The fact and the quote are better but still too much time is spent explaining them. On the other hand, the pronunciation videos (zoomed so we can see the speaker mouth move) are a really cool idea, and in general the vocabulary was interesting and I learned quite a few new words, so I recommend it.
