You can increase your active dictionary by a thousand words in just three months.
The main thing is to replace useless "time" with effective ones.
You will need
- 1. Dictionary, phrase book.
- 2. A set of cards, a business card and colored pens, or the simplest designer for creating websites.
- 3. You can use ready-made cards for memorizing words online. For example, http://img.learn-myself.com/uploads/1_525528f53e552525528f53e592.JPG »alt =» How to expand your vocabulary »class =» lightbx »data-lightbox =» article-image »></ I>
Decor. If the work is connected with travel and the Internet is not at hand, then you will need a case for cardboard (an ordinary business card is suitable). If the work is connected to a computer and there is an Internet connection, it is more convenient to make the most simple site where on the main page there will be a hypertext word list, and each term will be opened on a separate page. The page with the term will need to be filled with illustrations or creative exercises for the given word. And do it best at the time that is spent on a "mental break": balls, flowers and patience.
Visualization. Each word for memorization should be lived, felt, tied it to the visual and auditory associations, to the flow of images that it generates. To do this, either on a piece of cardboard, or on a separate page, you need to draw this concept, or pick up a photo-reminder. With what do you associate the abstract word "being"? With a photograph of the Earth from space, an old man in a Greek toga or some sacred book. Fantasy is the best memory assistant!
Active dictionary. Without use, the word dies. Therefore it is important to perform creative exercises, composing phrases and small texts from learned words. Even if this is an absurd tale about the cognitive dissonance of the kleptomaniac. The creative process turns on the subconscious, which means that there are more hooks, and the word will not slip out of memory like a fish from the hands. And, of course, you need to read thematic texts, speak in the discussion, to remove the psychological block before new concepts and get used to your expanded vocabulary.
