The use of Problem Solving for Language Skills

Problem solving is similar to the natural thought process that is used for language development. Compare your thinking while defining new words based on the context in which they appear. When you encounter an unfamiliar word, you use selective combination, encoding, and comparison to ascertain the meaning of the text.
