Number 2: Take the audio and video lessons
One of the best ways to learn new words is through conversations. You get to hear how the words are used.
So, in every lesson dialog, you’ll come across some words you don’t know. But don’t worry, because our teachers translate everything. So, when you hear the conversation again at the end of the lesson, you’ll know them all.
Number 3: Learn with our 2000 most common words list.
Here’s a question for you: How many words do you think you need for conversational fluency? 3000? 5000? Actually, language experts say you need only about 1500 to reach conversational fluency.
And with this study tool, the 2000 most common words list, you get the words you need for conversational fluency right upfront. That’s what makes this study tool so powerful. It’s all here for you, and they’re broken down into simple categories such as Adjectives, Nouns, Verbs, Food, Drinks, Numbers, and Months.
Now, 2000 is quite a lot to learn. Do you have to learn it all?
Well, you don’t have to learn it all at once. You can go category by category. You can also start with the top 100 words, then move on to the top 200, 300, and so on, until you get to 2000. So, if you’re an Absolute Beginner, you can start with the top 100 words. Once you’ve mastered those, you can move on to the next category.
You can also use other study tools to learn these words faster, right?
Such as number 4: Study with Spaced Repetition FlashCards
Now, we’re not talking about paper flashcards. We’re talking about the smart flashcards that you can find in our Premium Study Tools. Picture this, think of these as a teacher inside of your computer who quizzes you and sorts the words for you. So, words that you struggle with, you’ll be quizzed on more and more. And words that you know, you’ll see less and less. So, they display the words as needed, so you never forget them.
In every session, they’ll refresh your memory on the words you learned last time and introduce new ones. That’s exactly how our smart flashcards work.
And because you get drilled on the words you struggle with, you have no choice but to master them and improve. You have no choice but to succeed. You can also study the words from your lessons and vocab lists with the very same flashcard tool.
Number 5: Create Printable Word Lists with the Word Bank
The Word Bank is a study tool that lets you save words and phrases from lessons and vocab lists. Think of it as your extended brain. If you come across a new word that you want to review later, you can save it to the Word Bank. But the Word Bank also lets you print out your word lists.
So, click on the Printer Friendly option inside Word Bank and print out your collection of words. You can use that sheet for writing practice.
Number 6: Use the words.
After you learn a new word, using it right away is crucial to remembering it. So, when you’re done with a lesson or a vocab list, leave a comment! Make up a sample sentence and post it in the comment section. Write it down in a notebook. Or, shadow it, meaning, listen to the audio pronunciation and say it out loud.
You should do this because it’s the actual practice that gets you to remember it. So, say it, write it, listen to it again. Doing this will help lock the words into your memory.
