Now, why is learning prefixes so important when it comes to learning English? I'm
glad you asked. ;-)
Many words -- though not a majority it's still a large percentage -- are made up of
prefixes or suffixes added to a root, or root word.
And most of the prefixes, suffixes and roots come from either the Greek or Latin Languages. (That's
