I have been able to learn new words and clarify the definition and understanding of words that I have learned in the previous years. Not only has RAMP help me with my reading levels and grammar understanding, but also in my speech. Gaining knowledge on vocabulary has helped me speak more comfortably and understanding the meaning of sentence by just listening to them.
