Because of this, people older than us are more familiar with different words and phrase. 

For increasing your vocabulary, read novels or any of your favorite books. Books are a great way to learn about new words of different language.

If in the clue, you will see words like “abbr” then it means abbreviations. This is part of clue as it is telling you the short form of the word. 

Many people neglect theme of the puzzle but that theme is one of the biggest clues. For example if its theme is flowers then it is obvious that puzzle includes the names of flowers or something related to it. 

Also, one of the easiest clues is trivial clue and in this there is no clause for word play. 

Be patient

This game needs lots of patients and this is one thing which most of us don’t have. But keep in mind that learning involves a mistake which causes stress. The best to cool down yourself is that leave the game for some time. 

Go outside or talk with your family members. This will help you to take a break from the game and refresh your mind.

Crossword puzzles include words of different languages. It is shocking that most of us don’t know about them although we are suing in our day to day life. Many players just don’t figure out the foreign words and this will pull them back in the game. 

In this problem, Google will help you and you can search about those words there. 

You can even ask about them from your friends as it is possible that they know about it. 

Also, in the clues it is mention that the word is in different language. 

Other than this, one must think about plural words as this tip is followed by experienced players also. If you don’t know about the words then write‘s’ in the end and start guessing the word. You can also go for outside help but try to keep that help limited otherwise you will not able to judge your progress. 

Hope so the above points sound helpful to you. Playing crossword puzzle is not rocket science as a little bit of knowledge will make you the master of it.
