As a language learner, one of the basics to learn is the vocabulary. Simple it may sound, but if you tend to forget easily like me, it will be a challenge. You can learn new words when you came across it while watching a movie, or you read it in a book you currently read. But how can you really retain the words in your head especially those that are really easy to forget?
I have few ways to have my vocabularies on check. I tend to keep a journal wherein I will write all of my thoughts about a chapter or episode that I finished. As much as possible, I jot down the words I am unfamiliar with, search its meaning on the dictionary and write it down as well. Also, I will use those words, if I can, on my journal. If ever I am still confused how does the word can be used in a sentence, I will use the internet to search sample sentences.
How about you? What is the best way you can learn vocabulary? Maybe I can get an idea that will work for me too!
