Children have an amazing talent for learning vocabulary. Between the ages of one and seventeen, the average child learns the meaning of about 80,000 words -- about 14 per day. Dictionaries and traditional classroom vocabulary lessons only account for part of this knowledge growth. More important are individual’s reading habits and their dialogues with people whose vocabularies are larger than their own. Reading shows students how words are used in sentences. Conversation offers students the chance to ask questions about the language.

According to the passage, reading is valuable to students because
  1. children learn differently than adults
  2. words used in stories are generally harder
  3. reading provides vocabulary clues within sentence
  4. vocabulary is learned mostly through conversation
