Are you a wordsmith or an absolute litterateur? Do you find yourself jotting down new words along with their meanings, in a traditional or digital notebook? Even if you are not much of a language enthusiast, there's always something to learn and invest in your knowledge bank. So brace yourselves to add a couple of words to your vocabulary treasure chest.
First of all, why should you learn more words? Let's catch up with the benefits of increasing and improving your vocabulary. Knowing more words will obviously make it easier for you to read more difficult texts, whether that's in a book or online, or basically anywhere. Your abstract thinking skills will also benefit from it, as we view the world with the knowledge we already have. Whether you know it or not, you are always subconsciously associating whatever you experience with words and facts you already know.
Secondly, you might have heard of the famous saying above and it is pretty true too. You don't have to beat yourself up and go through a dozen books at the same time to improve your vocabulary. Even if you are a writer, you don't have to make learning new words tough for yourself. In fact, the best way is to observe people- the way they speak, their tone and expressions while pronouncing a certain word, can reveal a lot about the context of the words being said. Another fun way is to play word games like Scrabble or download educational apps.
