    Learning vocabulary

    Given your experience as teachers, is there a proven method to considerably improve vocabulary? I know there are plenty of websites to create and study word lists by repetition. However, more than tools and a handy list of tips commonly found on the Internet, are there research-based strategies that have proved to be effective in terms of retention rate? What would you recommend me, please? What do you think is an efficient way to learn vocabulary? And finally, would you recommend using a software? Which one?

    Re: Learning vocabulary

    Yes, there are plenty of studies out there if you can get access to them.

    My usual advice is to put yourself in positions where you are likely to repeatedly encounter your target vocabulary in natural use. This could be both by reading or hearing. I'm personally not big on software. I'd suggest reading texts and watching videos.
