”Why do large vocabularies characterize executives and possibly outstanding men and women in their fields?” 

 asked Johnson O’Connor, who researched how talent and learning affect performance. 

”The final answer seems to be that words are the instruments by means of which men and women grasp the thoughts of others and with which they do much of their own thinking. They are the tools of thought.”

Words are symbols for ideas. 
It takes confident command of the English language to communicate effectively. Wrong word usage or spelling mistakes will discredit your ideas. 
It will also limit the respect you will earn for your knowledge.

If your vocabulary is weak, you will understand less of the world around you and people will understand you less. 
Even if you are a genius, other geniuses with better verbal skills will be hired and promoted ahead of you. With the number of favourable jobs declining every year, this something you don't want to take lightly.

According to a survey of company executives the most important skill a job applicant can possess (and the skill most often found lacking) is the ability to communicate effectively.

A large vocabulary helps you organize your thoughts with clarity and distinction.

Building word power is a lifelong, ongoing process, and LearnThatWord is the perfect tool to guide you along.

If you are sure of what you know your confidence will nurture everything you say, write or do.
