Every time I read vocabulary, I forget it after a few days.Than I've figured out that I can't learn vocabulary the same way like I learn mathematics. Learning vocabulary requires specific technique.

In my article I'll show you how you can become a master of vocabulary!

To learn a language fully it is very important to know the vocabulary of that language. But first let me ask you a question.

What do we usually do when it comes to learning vocabulary? I will write down many words and meanings in a notebook. Than I expect "If I learn 10 words every day, 300 words a month,3650 words a year.

But the truth is in reality it never happens. The reason is that just learning to write in a notebook is not useful at all. How people learn? People usually learns in four different ways.

1)Visual learning

If you remember a thing well by reading books or looking at pictures, then you are a visual learner. Visual learning is the process of mastering a thing by reading or seeing.


2) Auditory learning

Sometimes it is seen that you are unable to remember even after reading a thing many times, at that time your friend came and explained the whole thing and immediately and everything become clear to you like ice. This feature is called auditory learning. If you don't remember reading or writing, if you hear it from somewhere else,you can remember those for a long time.

3) Communicative learning

No matter how many times you read a thing, you will remember it in a real sense only when you try to explain it to someone else or adding some reality in it. One thing that can be easily memorized by speaking aloud or listening to someone is verbal or communicative learning.

4) Kinaesthetic learning

Let's go to our childhood. How we used to learn at that time?Our childhood learning is called kinaesthetic learning. This method of learning more lasting if it is learned through walking or various activities than sitting at a chair table. You can learn new words by going somewhere in a vehicle or walking down the street. You will see a lot of words around you.

Now it's time to choose which method suits you best!I personally choose communicative learning.The more I share my insights,the more I learn.

Here are the ultimate hacks:

Mnemonic:

Mnemonics is a funny and interesting way to remember words. You can't believe it! In this way you can remember any words.

For example:
Take Critic and Critique. Many people are confused by these two words. If you think about it this way, critic means one judges things based on the conditions.


If you look at the word "critic" it seems simple and light. Say critic is an ordinary man who expresses his thoughts. See the word "Critique". It feels heavy.It is very hard to take criticism of your favourite works.

Mnemonics is very simple. Make a definition of your own to remember words.
In this way you can find out a lot of funny mnemonics by yourself, these will come in handy to remember word 

Learning the word roots:

Any word has a building part which is called Word root. Words changes but the root meaning remains the same.

So if you learn word roots, even if you don't know the meaning of the words that have been generated from root  you can guess the meaning easily.

For example: 
-bene- This root means good
Examples:Benefit (Profitable), Benign (Gentle, not harmful), Beneficial (Beneficial). 

-Mal- This root means bad. The words are just as negative. Take Malaria! Maleficent (harmful), Maladroit (incompetent)

-Cardio- it means heart (cardiovascular, electrocardiogram) These means heart related words.

-Dem means people (democracy, democrat, demographic)

-Derm this means skin (dermatitis, dermatology, epidermis)

-Omni,this root means all (omnipotent, omnipresent, omnivore)

-Poly which means many. Here are some examples:(polygamous, polygon, polytheist) Polytheist means who believes in more than one God.

Same goes as "Tri" which means three. Tricycle means a three wheeled cycle.

-Script- means "to write" Example: (manuscript, postscript, scripture)

If you know a word root, if you don't know the meaning of all the words made up of it, you can guess the meaning just by looking at the root!

Learning the Suffix and prefix :

Like Word root, prefix & suffix is ​​an important part of the word. Even if you know these, you can get a good idea about the meaning of the words.

Let's see, ante- meaning before, earlier example anterior (located in front), antecedent (something that has happened in the past)

uni-means single, one example Unilateral (one-sided), Unicycle (one-wheeled bicycle)

So learning Prefix & Suffix will make it much easier to remember the meaning of words.

By using your smartphone, you are getting all the nice dictionaries! If you search by typing “English Dictionary” in Playstore, you will get many dictionaries.

There are many interesting dictionaries, including color pictures, puzzles, games, even the Oxford dictionary. There are several word games you'll find very interesting to play.

The biggest advantage of these is that you get to know the meaning of the words as well as the pronunciation, synonyms and antonyms. You will also get a new word everyday as notification.

Make a habit to watch CNN,BBC or any kind of English news or listen to Podcast regularly.

When you watch a movie, use subtitles. If you don't know any meaning,than search the word in dictionary.

Remember you have to make a sentence with the word that you have learnt. This will make your word memory more lasting. Don't forget to make a sentence with every new word you learn .

Learn a new English word every day and use it on a daily basis. Then the vocabulary will be rich. You too can become confident by learning new words!

So if you work hard, the results will come one day. In addition to this, you have to practice reading a lot more English. Books, magazines, magazines, thousands of pages on Facebook will read English from them.

Learning vocabulary is not a difficult task, just requires a little hard work and proper techniques.


Let's start learning English much easier and faster from today!

Yeah we play games everyday more or less. Lets convert those gaming times into a language learning time. Let's utilize our time. So that we don't need to regret ourselves. English as a global language it is mandatory to learn it wholeheartedly. Vocabulary is like vains and artery of a language. The more vocabulary you have in your stock,the more you can talk fluently. It's good know that my article is a benefitting one. You are cordially welcomed!
