Does this sound like
a foreign language
It doesn't have to...
Studying SAT words not only makes you smarter and more eloquent, it's fun too!
Let's break it down:
ameliorate (v) means to improve or make better
loquacious (adj) means talkative
sagacious (adj) means shrewd or smart
Now, the meaning of the title Ameliorate Yourself! Change from Loquacious to Sagacious...
Improve yourself! Change from just being "talkative" to actually having something intelligent to say!
