Now again about those electronic dictionaries, sometimes like especially when people are trying to write,
they will write a sentence in their native language and then press translate on this dictionary, and get a sentence in English.
Now I've seen sentences that I knew came from the dic... from the electronic dictionary, because they made no sense.
Okay? They were terrible terrible sentences, don't do that, okay?
The people who made these dictionaries might not know English very well, keep that in mind, okay?
So these are some ideas, now I'm going to tell you what I think are the best ideas to increase your vocabulary.
Okay, so now we're going to look at a couple of other ways you can increase your vocabulary.
These are very effective but they take a lot of patience, a lot of perseverance.
You have to try hard, you have to keep doing it because vocabulary, not so easy right?
Okay, so first we're going to start with cards.
You get yourself a stack of cards, maybe this big, not too big, because you want to carry them in your pocket, take them with you everywhere you go, okay?
On one side of the cards, you're going to write words, four maybe five words that are new words for you.
You're going to write sentences on the back, on the other side of the card.
You're going to use these words in sentences so you have a clear meaning or you can write the meaning of the word, dictionary meaning, both okay.
Now you're going to split your cards into three piles, okay?
You can like have the pile of cards of words that you know, words you're very comfortable with, eventually you will have a pile like this.
Words that you're very comfortable with, you know them very well, you don't need to look at these cards very often, okay?
Now before I continue, where do you get these words?
Get from a TOEFL site or an IELTS site or an SAT site or an SAT book, for example they have lists of words that you need to learn.
Put all these words on cards, split them up like this.
You know these words very well, don't need to look at.
