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.
A lot of times, the harder clues will be a play on words that are related to the theme of the crossword puzzle, so you may have to take the theme of the puzzle into consideration in order to solve it. After that, you may be able to solve the crossword by process of elimination and by using some simple logic.
