    How To Use The Formal Words

    Many english words are too formal to use and some are old-fashioned.

    Since i'm just a beginner,is it necessary for me to memorize them?

    Thank You.

    Can you give the people in the forum an idea of the some of the words you think are not necessary?
    Who is deciding what you should and shouldn't learn? Is it a teacher?

    Actually, Cerry you need not only to memorize but of course you should also know what is the meaning of the words coz' you cannot use those words if you don't know how to use them....

    ...to memorize them? 'them' = the words you think 'too formal' and 'old-fashioned'.
    In this phrase, you have ask, is it necessary to memorize these words.

    Now, in your second post, you have changed to asking, how to memorize the words?
