On our Facebook page many of you have asked how to memorize and later how to remember English words.
The solution: READ IN ENGLISH!
This is the most effective way to memorize new words. For example, I have a large vocabulary knowledge in the online marketing field, because I read a lot on the subject. And I don’t read anything else. As a result, my vocabulary is limited.
What can you do? Read online news and blogs. The articles are generally short and concise. You will find many new English words that you haven’t used yet.
Visit News In Levels, an amazing website to read the latest news and learn some new English words. Created exactly for English language learners. Or use illustrations on Kaplan’s how to speak English page to learn the basic idioms and phrases.
The more you see the same words, the more it will remain in your memory and soon you will be able to use them in speech.
How to learn 4-5 extra words investing the same amount of time and effort?
Use a Thesaurus. The Thesaurus is a dictionary, which gives not the meaning of the word, but the word’s synonyms (words with similar meanings).
For example you type the word “business” and you will be given words such as “commerce”, “exchange”, “trade”, “firm”, etc..
This is a great way to learn 5-6 more words in the same time. And to dramatically increase your English vocabulary.
But, only by memorizing English words they won’t remain in your mind. Therefore, it is worth to learn using flashcards. You can create them yourself or you can download the already made cards from Quizlet.
Train while riding to work or with friends and family at home. This ways not only do you learn English, but your kids do too.
Of course, the very best way to memorize words actively use them in speech. Preferably with a native English-speaking teacher.
Read a lot and then practice with a native English speaker here at MyEnglishTeacher.eu or for free on one of these websites.
