Another reason for learning vocab (any subject)

Recommended Posts

Heard this stat tossed out today that gave me a new "reason" to give kids when they groan with vocab at school (English, science, math - whichever subject):


Babies know 0 words.


Average college grads know roughly 30,000 words.


This means, on average, people learn 4 words per day every day of their life (we all know this isn't linear, but...).


Gotta get those 4 words in to not fall below the curve!   :coolgleamA:   Doing so just helps keep you up with the Jones'.
