    Re: How to enlarge person's vocabullary fast?

    It is very difficult to learn a lot of new words fast. People who learn long lists of words go to bed knowing them, but find that they cannot remember much in a day or two. It is better to learn a small number at a time and to keep recycling them until they are in the long-term memory.

    Thank you for attention. Unnecessary. Thank us after we help you.
    Please see my corrections above. You said "my students". Are you an English teacher?
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Are you in Japan? よろしく!

    What level of students do you teach? College? Businessmen? Elementary school students? What level are your students at?

    I don't think it's really possible, so you shouldn't even try.

    Try thinking of learning more as a natural process, which can't, or shouldn't, be forced.

    However, with most kinds of learning, the more practice you do, the easier the learning process is allowed to happen naturally, at an optimum pace.

    He could get out Roget's Thesaurus-thematic type- and have the students learn all the words related one word such as big and its synonyms. As long as the goal is boost vocabulary only.

    Please remember what emsr2d2 told you recently: "Learners will assume that everything an English teacher (especially a native speaker) writes is correct". Perhaps you'd llke to edit your post.

    And how would that make things faster? The problem is speed not lists.

    As long as the goal is to boost vocabulary only. (This is a sentence fragment.)
    See above. I don't know what you mean by the part marked in blue.

    Who is the "he" referred to at the start of the post?

    You build vocabulary like you build a house -- one brick at a time.
