Five Simple Ways to Better Memorize Vocabulary (Video)

How to Better Memorize Vocabulary

Use a Flashcard App with Spaced Repetition System (SRS) Software

Using flashcards with SRS is probably the oldest trick for learning vocabulary.

It allows you to repeat vocab that you are struggling with more frequently while decreasing the frequency of word that you already know.

Learn with Mnemonics

When you put a wild or bizarre story behind your vocabulary word, chances are you are less likely to forget it. Next time you create a phrase on your flashcard, why not create one with a ridiculously awesome significance to it?

Write a Story with the Vocabulary that You Learned

Fact of the matter is, we learn with stories so why not create a story that is so compelling that you won’t forget it.

Take the time to write a fun or bizarre short story with the vocabulary that you  are learning for the week.

Use the Vocabulary Right Away

Once you have your key vocab words for the week, use them ASAP.

Use them in your weekly Skype conversations with a native-speaking tutor for example.

Record Yourself Saying the Vocabulary Out Loud

We learn by doing.

Sure it’s intimidating and you might make a fool of yourself, but at least you will walk away with a new vocabulary word in your toolkit.

Chances are you will be impressed with your progress in speaking when you go back and watch the video a couple months later.
