They Enhance Your Verbal Skills ─ The mental task of putting words together in a crossword puzzle can also help your language skills. An Irish study looked at a group of university students who did one simple crossword puzzle per day for 4 weeks. They noticeably improved their verbal communication skills compared to those who did not do any puzzles.
In order to solve crossword puzzles, you need to begin by taking steps to prepare yourself. A couple of handy items to have are a dictionary and thesaurus, so that you will not get hung up by confusing words and phrases. Other necessities are a good, sharp pencil or two, and an eraser. You will also want to be sitting at a table or desk in a well lit area.
