Do long words confuse you? Is vocabulary not your strong point? In lieu of a traditional education, you might want to check out this piece of self-help software. By filling in missing letters, un-jumbling words from an alphabet soup, picking the correct definition and eliminating letters from a puzzle board, you’ll improve your ability to express yourself. Or so they say. We can’t see what anyone will gain from this that they couldn’t gain tenfold from a good novel and a dictionary. It takes a lot of play to get an updated daily rating, which will remain at a cynically low level for a long time to keep you playing. That’s our excuse, anyway.
