People who increase their speaking vocabulary will increase their writing vocabulary, and people who has poor speaking vocabulary usually have poor writing vocabulary too. "A word isn’t really yours until you’ve said it. Then, when it comes naturally in your speech, it will slip into your writing naturally, too. Often you won’t even notice that you’ve used a new word
