Would you like to be one of the 5 lucky winners of the book ‘A Word A Day – 365 Words To Enhance Your Vocabulary‘? Apparently, by the time we reach middle age, the average English-speaking person has a vocabulary of around 25,000 words. This may sound like a lot, but it isn’t! 25,000 is a mere 15% of the words in our vocabulary. In other words there are loads of new words for us all to learn. Whether or not you’ll remember them all, that’s whole new challenge.
