You're luck that you still remember one word. With that rate of learning vocabulary, I thought you would forget them all at once hehehehhehe :lol: .

Oh no! I never forgot all what I had learnt. I am proud of my MQ and I think I am really a "live E. dictionary" (but just 365 words, 'coz I have learnt it for only one year)

Ha ha, the more you learn, the more you forget!!!

5 is a good number to learn daily and the important thing is how long you keep it going on. 1 week, 1 month or 1 year? 1 week is easy, 1 month is possible but 1 year (=365 days) is a terribly great effort :!:

It's not how many words you have learnt, it's how many words you can remember (meaning and using), then learn them well! Make sentences, think of situation where you find the new words and imagine when you yourself can use them.

Vocabulary

Postby DocAndy » Mon Nov 28, 2005 1:22 am

Hello everyone,

I learn Vocabulary with a programm. Every day I learn 5 Vocabularys.
My programm ask me the 1st day if it is right he ask me after 3 days again. If i know that again he ask me in 10 days. This procedure after the 30 and after the 90 day. After the ninety day it is in my brain(I hope so :) ).

I make this since 4 month. The last two weeks i was in drouble with tests and so on.

But I have drouble to build right sentences and talk. I read a lot of articels. I hope it will be better.

Mfg
Doc

Re: Tips for your vocabulary

Postby vimbo » Tue Dec 27, 2005 6:31 pm

This is my opinion too! One has to embed English in one's daily routine. Every day a word. I listen to BBC daily and watch the news on CNN! Additionally I've got an electronic dictionary and look all the time for words I don't know. Unfortunately I have no one to speak to and therefore I have lack of practise. So I speak to an imaginary person to train myself in forming sentences quick. After a while one recognises the increasing amount of vocabulary. My English trainer told me the better you get the less you recognise progress! HE WAS DEFINATELY RIGHT: It comes slowly but surely. Another hint: Write your shopping list in English! Take care y'all!
