An individual’s proficiency of using the apt word, for an effective communication, is determined by their vocabulary knowledge. It not only helps in understanding others’ viewpoints but also in expressing your own ideas. Be it listening, speaking, reading, or writing—vocabulary holds a great deal of significance in every language skill.
In an interview, Vocab Tunes’ author Manisha Shelley Kaura referred to a recent US Education Department report that showed a continuous erosion in vocabulary skills across the nation.
She further added that her ten years of research on the cause of the failure of early literacy in America revealed that the lack of root word knowledge in K—8 school students is the “missing link”.
