  • Have you ever noticed, after studying English for a while, that you don't learn as many new words as you used to?

  • Don't worry; that's completely normal, and there are ways to overcome this hurdle.

  • Let's take a look at three ways you can continue to improve and grow your vocabulary.

  • First of all, what's the point if you're not having fun?

  • Are there any particular subjects you're interested in?

  • Do you have any hobbies?

  • You could learn new words by doing some research online and reading about it.

  • If you don't like reading, try listening to songs and looking up the lyrics or watching a movie you like with the subtitles.

  • You could also try word game apps to help you with new words.

  • The important thing here is to have fun.

  • Don't you hate it when you discover a new word and you forget it when you want to use it?

  • One way to help you remember the new word is to keep a word journal.

  • This can be on your phone, or a notebook if you prefer.

  • To help you remember, write down the meaning, pronunciation, and an example sentence that makes sense to you.

  • If you use a dictionary app, you could add a link or post a picture of the meaning next to it.

  • As the saying goes, use it or lose it!

  • Once you learn a new word, make sure you use it so that you could remember it better.

  • The best way would be to use the new word while speaking.

  • If you don't have anyone to talk in English with, don't worry; you can still use the new word in writing somewhere.

  • It could be in a social media post or a personal journal.

  • And, as mentioned before, you could play word games using various apps and try to use it then.

  • Remember, use it or lose it!
