    Welcome to the forum.

    Many people find it much easier to learn new vocabulary by memorising a whole sentence containing the new word. That way, you learn it in context. For example, if you are trying to learn the verb "to drop", instead of trying to just remember "drop means when you let go of something and it falls to the floor/ground", you remember "I dropped my mother's favourite cup and it smashed on the floor". That gives you a little story to memorise and, in your head, you will probably "see" the cup falling from your hands to the floor, reminding you that you "dropped" it.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: how to deal with new words?

    Thanks a lot for your kindly response. And thank you very much for correcting! Actually, I've tried the way you taught me to remember new words, and it turns out taking me too much time, especially when I am preparing for the exam. But more haste less speed! I think that's the best for me. Thank you!
