A good game to play is charades. You can use english movie titles and song titles as the criteria.

You can also widen your vocabulary by playing a game like scrabble. Just make sure you have a dictionary at hand!

You can also use mnemonics to enhance your vocabulary! These are basically memory tricks to help you remember.

Buy a good dictionary! While it will help you look for the meaning of words that you don't know, it's also a good idea to try to learn a few new words each day. What I usually do is open the dictionary by random and point to a random part of the page and then understand the meaning of that word.

I'll post in here some of the new words that I learn everyday. It's good to always have a word for the day.

voluptuary: A person devoted to luxury and the gratification of sensual appetites; a sensualist.

I think she/he means that u should understand the meaning of words & their grammatical functions whether verbs/nouns/adj/adv ..etc..So u can put each word in the right position within the sentense & use it in a proper way..
