  • Today, I'm gonna be telling you about how to learn new English vocabulary

  • and use it in everyday conversation.

  • This is a very important video.

  • So keep watching.

  • A lot of my students are studying the TOEFL, TOEIC, IELTS, or other English tests.

  • And I understand.

  • They have to learn a lot of new words in a very short period of time.

  • But let me tell you something

  • Memorizing vocabulary lists is not a good way to learn English.

  • The best way - the very best way to learn English is by reading.

  • Reading anything that you can.

  • Books in English.

  • Magazine articles in English.

  • Even comic books.

  • Whatever you like - read - and read as much as you can.

  • This is really going to help you improve your English much more than memorizing long vocabulary lists.

  • It just doesn't work.

  • But, the thing is, how can we use this vocabulary in everyday conversation?

  • The most important thing to do is as soon as you learn a new vocabulary word or even a phrase,

  • Use it! right away!

  • Make yourself a note

  • or something to help you remember to use that in conversation.

  • Even the same day would be good.

  • Using the vocabulary right away is going to help you memorize it

  • and stick in your brain.

  • And you know what, you might be afraid that you're gonna use it wrong or incorrectly

  • That's okay.

  • If you use it wrong or incorrectly - not a problem,

  • that's part of the learning process.

  • And using what you read is going to help you memorize the English words a lot faster.

  • By actively using new vocabulary every day, you're going to really memorize that

  • and it's gonna help you become a better English speaker much faster.

  • Memorizing vocabulary lists is not a good way to learn English.

  • If you don't use the new words, then you won't master pronunciation and you might forget the words.

  • So remember. Read it and use it.

  • Thanks for watching.
