Introduction
Did you know that nearly six million people in
the United States are illiterate? This means that
they cannot read and ultimately means they cannot
communicate in the English language.
Communication is the key to any relationship that
you become apart of, whether it be friends,
family, or an intimate relationship. The best way
of improving your communication and reading
skills is by learning vocabulary.
