The words people use say a lot about them. Some words say that they're smart, persuasive, and informed. Others say that they don't know what they're talking about. Knowing which words to use, though, is only half the battle: Once they've found le mot juste, they have to know how to use it correctly. Expanding one's vocabulary and learning basic grammar rules are two guaranteed ways to improve one's speaking, reading, and writing skills. Not only are these skills critical on standardized tests such as the SAT or GRE, they will also open doors for students professionally and even socially.
