    Vocabulary?

    Hi,
    I am a new member in here. I am so glad that i found this page. I hope i will be helpful.

    So, my problem is that i don't know how to increase my vocabulary. I tried reading books. The last book that i read was a very good book but everything i remember is only one new word that i learned. Just imagine reading a whole book and learning only one word. I am asking myself if reading that book was worth!

    I would be very happy if you could tell me a good way to increase my vocabulary.

    Thanks for your help

    Re: Vocabulary?

    that sounds like you read a book that was below your reading level. Try another book that would surprise you on how many words are new to you. Now, how should you know if that book is within your reading level? Flip through a few pages and if you found that there are about 5 words on a page that new to you, it's yours to take home to read to increase your vocab.
