Dieselfit Posted November 17, 2013 Report Share Posted November 17, 2013 Adding new words in your English vocabulary shouldn't be as hard as it might seem. Try these tips to absorb and obtain new information: Assisocate: When you learn a new word, find something to associate it with. For example if you're trying to memorize GARGANTUAN, which means very large, think of things that match the description. Think gorrilla, monster trucks, or even that zit on your friends nose. Attach the words to images and create emotion with it. Search:The internet is filled with tons of information and it's at your finger tips. If you don't know what a word means, search it. If you continuously learn new things, you will make it easier to absorb information while strengthening your brain. Create a map:I found this to make learning new words much easier. Get a paper and pencil. Choose a word that you would like to learn new words for. For example if you choose "search" then have that in the middle. Then connect it to new words like "find, explore, look, hunt, forage" etc. You can imagine how many words you'll learn by the end of the day!Don't forget to practice, practice and practice! The more you use the new words you learn, the more it'll be buried in your brain. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
