Just a mom, hoping to take LSAT or GRE at some point soon and trying to encourage my son to do the same for his SAT since he will be a senior in high school next year!
I am American but studied abroad in Israel during high school. My English language vocabulary and speaking skills were effected to my surprise when I returned to the US after graduation. It was very embarrassing for me and purchased a paperback on how to improve my vocabulary and boy, did it work!!! Vocabulary was never my strong suit (like Math) but just reading that little paperback was SO amazing. With the internet... no need for that. Got sites like this to use instead :)
