1.Choose a specific theme for building vocabulary


  When building vocabulary, you can guide yourself by focusing on a specific
theme for the words you're learning. Pick a context or a specific topic — say,
sports, or words associated with feelings — then study words related to that

  在构建词汇量时,你可以引导自己专注于某个特定的主题来学习单词。选择一个背景或特定的话题–比如,运动或与感受相关的词汇 –

  Words describing emotions is an interesting choice, for instance, as it
includes words like enthusiastic and excited. The category of sports words, on
the other hand, includes exciting words like throw, spin, or marathon.


  You could also study “travelling around town” words like sidewalk,
intersection, or pavement; or words related to everyday life, like foods
available at the supermarket. You could even study words about school work!


  Whatever theme you pick, create stories in your mind and speak them aloud
using words related to that theme.


  2.Tips for easily memorizing your words


  When you have settled on vocabulary words, write them down or print them
out. Carry the list with you always. In the pauses of your busy day-when you're
sitting on the bus, in the dentist's office, during commercials-take out the
paper and review your vocabulary words until you feel comfortable that you would
recognize (and be able to use) these words the next time you see them. Use
sticky notes and put them on computers, on cupboards, and other places you're
likely to see them, as a reminder.


  Try jumbling the letters of your vocabulary words up, then unscrambling
them to form the word again. Work with the words until you are very comfortable
using them in sentences on your own.


  Remembering the words is very important! How do we do this? Try to
associate each word with a picture or some other representation in your mind.
This will help you remind yourself of the word's meaning. You don't have to
actually draw or see this picture — you can use your imagination to create
suitable images!


  It's also important to not try to learn more than 7-10 new words in a day.
Generally, it's safer to aim for 5-6 words a day for better retention. This, of
course, depends on how much time you have each day for studying vocabulary.


  3.Read whatever you're interested in


  Pick out something you want to read in your target language. As you read,
underline the words you don't understand. Then you should write them down within
a sentence so you can see how each word fits into the sentence. Repeat the words
until you are very familiar with them.


  4.Make sure you learn new forms of new words


  Some words have many different forms, like silent (adjective), silently
(adverb) and silence (noun)。 Practice forming sentences which the different
forms of these words, and try to use as many forms of the words in sentences as

  有些单词有很多不同的形式,像silent 安静的(形容词), silently 安静地(副词)和

  A good way to combine this practice with your grammar learning is by
thinking about each word and identifying which part of speech it is. Is it a
noun, a verb, an adjective, or an adverb? It can help you to understand how
those different parts of speech are formed. For instance, you can make a plural
noun by adding an s, or an adverb by adding ly.


  For example: beauty is a noun, beautify is a verb, and beautiful is an
adjective. Use them in sentences differently.

  例如:beauty(美丽)是一个名词, beautify

  5.Listen attentively to all conversations


  Whether it's the news in English, a movie, or a class lecture, pay
attention to what's being said! Make note of the words that you didn't


  When you find an unfamiliar word, refer to the dictionary for an
explanation. Browse through words and make them your friends. Whichever new
words you hear and read, mark them in the dictionary. Keep a tab of the number
of words that you have mastered. Keep a goal for a week, for a month and so


  When you meet your first goal — and for each subsequent goal you complete
— treat yourself! Go out and celebrate, because you're learning vocabulary!
