The words people use say a lot about them. Some words say that they're smart, persuasive, and informed. Others say that they don't know what they're talking about. Knowing which words to use, though, is only half the battle: Once they've found le mot juste, they have to know how to use it correctly. Expanding one's vocabulary and learning basic grammar rules are two guaranteed ways to improve one's speaking, reading, and writing skills. Not only are these skills critical on standardized tests such as the SAT or GRE, they will also open doors for students professionally and even socially.

Also known as ISIS, Da’esh, al-Qaeda in Iraq (AQI), and a host of other names, the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) has increasingly gained attention over the years for its brutal tactics and seemingly blatant disregard for human rights, but it has recently dominated the global media spotlight and made headlines when it attacked and seized control of Mosul, the second largest city in Iraq, and drove out an Iraqi army force that was more than five times its size in June 2014. It has since laid claim to various territories throughout Iraq and the Levant, and it has established operational control and maintained administrative structures on both sides of the Iraqi-Syrian border. Most recently, it declared the restoration of a caliphate and renamed itself the Islamic State.
