Can a middle schooler understand?

Dan Pallotta doesn’t understand what he’s hearing. To quote his post,

“I’d say that in about half of my business conversations, I have almost no idea what other people are saying to me.”

Similar epidemics exist in every field, sometimes spreading outside the box.

My personal solution? If a middle school student doesn’t understand, I should refine my explanation.

(Here’s a group making a project of simple explanations, and also¬†a growing encyclopedia in simple English.)
