Associating similar words


Recommended Posts

Associating similar words? How is it done, through the use of similar terms to learn a language? I think that could help specially if you know a few words with the same or similar meaning in order for you to expand your vocabulary.

It may help, although it depends on where you associate it to.  If the words are totally different, you may end up getting more confused.

I have used this technique as well.  For example, between Tagalog (Filipino language) and Bahasa (Indonesia or Malaysian language), there are so many similarities.  Therefore, whenever I hear a Bahasa word, I will just associate it to Tagalog and I would observe that pattern and compare the other words as well.  With that technique, I find it easier to actually construct sentences.
