Time to challenge your brain & widen your mental dictionary. Due to the overwhelmingly positive response to my premier Vocabulary Time! post, I decided to definitely keep the series going. You can always find a beauty review or a cool style post, but there's not as much content available for pursuing a greater education. Regardless if English is your mother tongue, you can still learn. Let's do it together!
When I watch television & movies I like to utilize the closed captioning; it helps me to be aware of every word. It also gives me the opportunity to see & hear words in context. I like to write the words down so I can look them up later. These are three words that piqued my interest. Here's the second round of Vocabulary Time! You don't have to like it but you'll learn from it.
