Vocabulary Skill
« on: July 03, 2019, 05:42:13 PM »
The knowledge of words is a must for communicating in any language. One must know the words and their meanings to be a user of a language. Words are the basic building blocks which make up a language evident in a dictionary. The more words a person knows, the better he/she can communicate.
