Forgetting English words is frustrating, and it kills your motivation to continue learning the language. That’s why you need to make sure you can learn words fast, and remember them.
Here are my three best tips to help you learn English words fast:
Tip #1: use vocabulary audio flashcards.
The easiest and fastest way to learn English words is with audio flashcards. But those flashcards cannot be random words from random lists. Instead, they have to be words that have come up in your course lessons.
By hearing English words both in your course recordings and audio flashcards, you’ll become familiar with those words fast, and you’ll remember them.
To revise the vocabulary in your course, play the audio flashcards as often as you can. Say the words out loud along with the native speakers, and check that you’re familiar with their usage.
Tip #2: learn phrases as a whole.
Avoid analysing English phrases word for word. Instead, learn phrases as a whole, for example: “from time to time”, “on the other hand”, “you’re welcome”.
Also, learn phrases in context, as part of complete sentences. That way you’ll remember them more easily.Learn English phrases in context, as part of complete sentences. That way you’ll remember them more easily.Click To Tweet
Tip #3: find similarities between words.
If you can find a similarity between an English word you’ve just come across (for example: “impersonal“) and another English word you already know (for example: “person”), you won’t forget it easily.
… words, like Nature, half reveal
And half conceal the Soul within.
