Now again, coming back to that notebook, always have a notebook with you, always have a pen with you and don't limit yourself to one new word.
When you learn a new word, make sure you learn different forms of the same word, okay?
So for example, the word "beautiful", let's say this is a new word for you, you learn the word "beautiful".
Put it in your adjective column, it's an adjective, that's what you want.
But why not learn the other forms?
For example, what is the adverb form of "beautiful" ?
I think most of you know it, it's "beautifully", so you have now two new words.
What is the noun form of "beautiful"?
It's "beauty", you now have three new words in your vocabulary.
Is there a verb form of "beautiful" ?
Yes, as a matter of fact there is.
"Beautify", means to make beautiful, you now have four new words.
Think of other words, "beautician".
"Beautician" is a person who works making people more beautiful, she does facials and manicures and pedicures and wax and whatever else these beauticians do.
Anyways try to find other forms, learn many words instead of just one word, okay?
Now some people like to study roots and suffixes and prefixes.
Personally I'm not a huge fan of this recommendation, but first, let me explain what a root is.
