    Re: Vocab. learning Methods

    Hi there,

    I personally feel that, you can increase your vocab understanding by additional 10 percent if you can make sentences from the words. It could reinforce your understanding. Good luck,



    (ps: could u pls comment on my writing esp. grammar and sentence construction? thanks alot

    I wouldn't use " make sentence from the words...".May be you'd better

    say " make sentence with/by the words...".

    Anyhow we should ask about it.

    I think you could make a sentence 'from/with' the words, not 'by'.

    You should avoid translations because most English words have more than one definition (some have more than 20! Eg. 'put', 'take' ).

    I suggest using context first, then synonyms, then translations.
