1,500 words. That one is the minimum number of terms that are considered a speaker has to know how to maintain a fluid conversation in English. That yes, if it is wanted to get to dominate to the Anglo-Saxon language his would be to count in your salary with some 20,000 active words and some 40,000 passive ones. It is shelp soon.

Considering these data, to memorise in English a few palabrejas becomes in something essential.

That yes, we want to put to total record from the start of much that we are against the traditional methods to memorise in English. That is to say, those that teach from the school and the institute to us to study vocabulary in English. And that consists, neither the more nor the less, that in sinking the elbows and learning facing the enormous examination of the next week amounts of new terms and words.

These methods serve little as good: they force to him to one to learn words that do not interest to him to the force, memorising them as a parrot, and only so that time later we forget the majority the same.

And it is that although to memorise in English is indispensable (as we have reflected in the first paragraph of this article), from LearnWithZac we propose forms more practical to learn new vocabulary. Next we are going to offer some brief brush-strokes that we hoped to you are to you helpful, but really you are interested in dominating the English language we animated to you to contact with us or to pass you through our academy to inform to you over our classes into English. You are more than invited to throw a look to them to the same 🙂


How to memorise in English new vocabulary of an effective form?

In order to begin; little to little

10 words. That one is the exact number of terms in English that we advised to you to learn every day. Never more. Perhaps less if you see that the vocabulary of previous days is forgetting to you. And no, because a day does not give you to study of the pull 100 new words you are going to have a more numerous and diverse lexicon, because we assured to you that at the end of the week you will not remember nor half of these terms. Despacito but without pause!


And from where coat new vocabulary?

To learn loose words, without no type of connection among them, is the worse thing than you can do at the time of memorising in English new vocabulary. In this sense we propose two different methods to you.

  • Semantic fields. That is to say, perhaps Monday you have risen with spirits to learn new words related to the office. Perfect, it learns then 10 new words related to the office and only to the office. What you want to review the members of the family in English? Perfect also; but those leave them for Tuesday already. Every day a semantic field. Of one by one. To thus it will be much more easy you to remember the studied thing.

  • Books, films, series, songs€¦ A slope that we like very much; and that consists simply of reading books in English, to listen to songs in English, to see films in English, series in English€¦ That yes, always with a ball-point pen and a notebook to your side. The idea is that in this notebook you are pointing all those new words that you do not know, you look for his meaning, and the notes in the notebook at issue. More ahead, in another advice, we will tell you that to do with that English vocabulary in 😉

PS: in the previous paragraph we have left a pair you of connections to other articles of the blog that can come facing discovering very good series, films wonderfully to you and songs with which to learn new palabrejas.


Mental associations and labels

Well, already you have a great number of possibilities to obtain new vocabulary. But how to help you to memorise in English all those terms? We propose two forms to you:

  • Mental associations: it consists of associating each word that you learn to the scene of a film, to the passage of a book, to a color, to a situation€¦ To put an example; if you learn the word €œWand€ (€œMagic wand€) you could associate it to the films of Harry Potter.

  • Labels: a method a little more complex but than gives great results. One is to label all the objects of your house by means of €œpost-its€ with his respective name. That can be a nuisance? Yes, but also it is of most effective.


Hour to put in practice the learned thing!

Nevertheless, there is nothing no better to internalise the new vocabulary in English which you have memorised that to use it. How? Well, the easiest form is using it in your writings. And with €œwritings€ we talked about from that €œBest Seller€ with which you want to obtain fame and fortune, as the €œWhatsapps€ with your friendly or your €œTweets€. All opportunity is good to put in practice your new knowledge!

Anyway, there is another method that also is of much utility: resorting to social networks of languages (with access to webcam), conversational bars of interchange of languages or classes of English using in dialogues these same terms that you have studied. Thus not only you will put on approval your memory, but also your articulation (and with people able to correct to you if you are doing it bad).


From time to time give a review him

The memory, along with the time, plays to us sometimes bad past. And it is most normal of the world that, spent some weeks, you forget a few the words in English which you have been learning with the previous methods. Nevertheless, it is now when the written down notebook and terms enter game as much that we have commented in the second point!

Once in a while (once a month it would be the ideal) throw a look to him to this notebook and review a few of those terms that already you had forgotten. Return them to put in practice; and thus, little by little, you will obtain that every time you have them more internalised. That after all it is than 🙂 treats


It follows these advice, step by step (or selected some of the secondary methods that we propose to you), and we assured that to memorise in English it will be to you much more easy, pleasant (better to see €œStar Wars€ in English which a text book of interminable pages) and cash to you that to try to study it everything as a parrot. And if you have some other doubt, or you have interest in our classes, nor you think it to you: ponte in touch with us through plank of commentaries and we will respond to all questions.
