On method of learning vocabulary is to keep a journal of the words you learn. There are a couple of different things you can do for this. The first is to create a table showing the parts of speech. In the first column, you place the word’s noun. In the next column, you place the word’s verb. The next word you place will be the Adjective and finally the Adverb of the main word.
Let’s take the word “economy” for example.
|Economy||Economize||Economic / Economical||Economically|
Another aid in Vocabulary building is an image that looks like a flower. In the center, you place the main word. In its petals, you can place a variety of different information. In each of the petals you can:
- Put a definition of the main word
- what part of speech the word belongs to
- Place pronunciation tips
- Add any other additional information that will help you remember the new vocabulary
