How to Learn a Multitude of English Words in No Time!
  • Here is an article for those who want to learn lots of English in no more than a month or two. It doesn't take much, all you need to do are the following steps:

    1) First, in order to learn some new words you will nee to buy a small notepad that is pocket-sized and easy to carry. This small journal will be for writing new words you happen to stumble upon while reading a book or hearing someone else speak. You can jot down definitions of the words later on.

    2) After that, you will need to memorize these words, So now you should buy another journal that is perhaps a little larger for room to write. In this journal you will write some sentences using the words you have found from your pocket journal. You may also use flashcards for memorizing but you remember better when you write then when you see. Make sure you write the word in an accurate way. Ex: Do not use an adjetive as a noun or a verb as an Adjetive.

    3) Then, you should look up the orgin of the word. This way you can find out more about a word and memorize it better. This can also help you figure out the meanings of new words that you come across without using a dictionary or thesaurus. You can also grab a Vocabulary builder (which I highly reccomend) it has the roots of words that tells you its orgins and what language it was originated from. Ex: The word Bell is Latin for War. So if you see a word that has the latin word bell in it that means that it must have something to do with war or fighting. Some words for example would be: Bellicose - quarrelsome or warlike. Belligerence - Combat or fighting. Antebellum - Existing before a war. Bellona - the little known goddes of war or Mars husband. Rebellion - is the fight against some authority. There is also prefixes and suffixes that can give you a hint on what a words may mean. Some examples would be: Re - a prefix for doing something over or again as in Rewrite - to write again or over. A or Ab - prefix for taking something away or off of something as in Abrasion - the wearing away of a material or to erode also in Ablute - to wash away something to be clean and in Abhor - to hate with intensity or abominate. Then the suffix "ly" is found in many adverbs like quickly or slowly.

    4) So thats one way to learn new words, so here's another. Try using your words in a sentence, and make sure the sentence is used in an accurate way to sum up what was previously said. Read alot of books. If you read alot of books chances are you can find more words and have fun too! Then more you read the better your brain will get used to it then you'll get better at your pronunciation.

    5) Practice your pronunciation with your words. If you know how to pronounce it the better you will bee at understanding it. Also if you know how to pronounce a word, chances are you will be able to spell it out too!

    6) Do not jumble too many words into your head all at once or in one day, this can give you some trouble on memorizing and you can also get your words messed up or your pronunciation wrong. And besides, its just too much work to try and fit all that information in at once you would need to be really good at memorizing.

    7) Read the Dictionary. when you read the dictionary you get a good glimpse of new words so when you see them again and cant recall it's information, then you will have an idea of it's definition.

    8) Find Synonyms. Look for synonyms, this is probably the best most easiest and quickest way to learn new words. Because if you already know a word and you also know some synonyms you are laerning multiple word sat once! But becareful some words do not have the exact same meaning they could just be similar or related. Ex: Synonyms for Wane would be, subside, abate, ebb, and decrease, but each mean something different. Ebb, means to end but will come back again in a pattern like the sun ebbs each day, it rises then sets. To wane means to end in something good like laughter waned and there is waxing and waning moon phases which light is represented as something good. Abate means to decrease the intensity, this is most often used in the term of taxes like if one abates his/her taxes. to decrease could mean to go down generally but it most cases in quantity or number. To Subside means to decrease slowly or to fade like if a storm subsides. Another synonym would be nulify.

    9) Each fruit and veggies, Vitamin C which is found in fruits are good for you brain like, apples, oranges, grapes, blueberries, strawberries, ecetera.

    10) Study your words over and over each day so that you memorize them completely. Don't just look them up once then never go back to the word again then you will forget the information when you need it.
  • This is something that will take time and perseverance, donot rush into things and learn 100 words in a minute. If you can that's great and fortuitous but for most it's not that easy. If you are one of those who have a hard time remembering eat fruits, read, and excersise. do lot's of crossword puzzles and write down all the information you collect. You coul also try small three to five lettered words at first to help you warm up. Knowing lots of vocabulary is a great thing. Reading helps strengthing the mind and the more you read the more you get payed and the easier it is for you to understand. If you know how to read you can become cunning in most puzzles by figuring out how wordss relate to eachother and things. Reading can teach you math, science, social studies, and is everywhere you go and is a daily routine. Knowing english better can help you learn new languages faster and easier. Also you should learn slang and phrases that words are mentioned in to better understand the clever axioms and aphorisms that are used. Learning Figuritive language can help you be a better story writer or peom writer or anything else in creative writing. Practice makes perfect so Good Luck!
