    Re: vocabulary

    I suggest reading a lot. Then you can look up words you don't understand.

    *Not a teacher.

    I suggest you learning words in sentences. Memorising words is not enough.

    Re: vocabulary

    The "to" after "learn" is incorrect. And we don't usually use "vocabularies" in that way.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Please see my corrections to your post above, in red. Remember to follow the rules of written English:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with a single, appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I".
    - Do not put a space before a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Always put a space after a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Don't use textspeak/chatlish abbreviations. For example, "ty" does not exist in English.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: vocabulary

    Can you say 'learn more vocabulary'?
    Or improve/increase/widen one's vocabulary?

    Re: vocabulary

    In the first, I would say "words".

    The second choices are fine.
