There are no easy solutions. The old methods are very often the best methods: reading and listening, reading and listening, reading and listening and particularly reading. It is the best way for learning and improving vocabulary. Dictionary is of course terribly useful but it isnt very useful to sit with a dictionary and to go through it systematically with the copied words you dont know about. Read, read things youre interested in. Read magazines, read short stories, read what you can find , read You have access to the internet?- read web sites on subjects youre interested in and only look up the words which come up again and again and again. Dont let words that dont know stop you. Dont get depressed. Dont notice all the things that are unfamiliar, that you dont know. Read and understand what you con. A lot of that vocabulary youll be picking up without thinking about it. Youll surprise yourself one day youre using words you dont know you knew but words youve read. If a word comes up frequently and really seems to be an important word because it always comes when you want to work out something you dont know, make a note of it, look it up in the dictionary but then go back to where you found it and read that again , this time understanding it. - And what about listening to the radio? Is that a good way of improving your vocabulary? - Its brilliant, its excellent. You dont have the luxury of stopping and thinking and going back and checking out the content. So listening to the radio is a wonderful way of improving your comprehension. I think in terms of learning vocabulary you need to read as well. As for remembering for ever, lets not forget that, how do you remember something forever? Well, I cant promise you forever, but you remember things by coming across them again and again and again and again. And I think one of the problems with vocabulary is that people sometimes want to write down and learn every word they come across. Well, maybe a word theyre never going to come across again. But if youre reading in a particular area a subject the more you read in that subject, the more the words will come back again and again and again. And its important that that happens. Umm and try to find opportunities to use a word if youre speaking to people or if youre writing. See if you can sneak in some of the words youve used. That feeling of, ah! Ive just used a new really has a huge impact on the mind and the memory and that, noticing that you are using a word properly for the first time, in itself, is a really important part of remembering it. - And also when youve just learnt a new word and you hear it again and you recognize it immediately that0s a great feeling. - Absolutely! And thats a wonderful phenomenon that we have in our own languages too. When we learn something and then we suddenly notice it everywhere. And I think (mmm) because Im a language learner as well as a language teacherI learn a new word in English or in another language and suddenly its on every page. - Well, very good. Thats some good advice on how t remember new words and new vocabulary. Thanks very much, Martin
