Memorizing new words


Trellum

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I am officially studying dutch again :)   My grammar is ok, now I need to learn more words!  I need to do that so I start using the language more and start understanding more of what I read and what people say.  I'm not sure what to do about this though, can anyone give me some advice on this one?  I was using Memrise, but it gets kind of boring after a while and I got stuck building my own list. Any kind of advice, tips or sites that might be helpful will be greatly appreciated :)

More Memrise courses perhaps?
And I fixed a little typo in one of your tags ("dutcdh" instead of "dutch") for you.

I second memrize: it's a great way to learn new words. You could try watching Dutch shows with English subtitles, which would also help with understanding sentence structures (if the translation is accurate, of course). I also had one friend who used sticky notes to write meanings of various objects in her room to help remember words of items you may use every day.

I've tried that :(  But my Dutch is not that good, not yet at least :(  I can understand most of the  things being said on the TV,  or to me, but i can't keep a basic conversation just yet (lazy on my part - I know), that is why I want to learn more new dutch words.  I did that with English... the rest came naturally.   I just learnt to use a lot new words and somehow I figured the rest, I was so very young back then though...

Thanks, typos keep happening ;)  Ah, I guess I will just keep on working on my own Memrise course, how I wish I could have kept that motivation up...  I'll take a look at it later, I still needed to add a couple more words.  I might ask my fiance to help me with the audio later.
