  1. Just take it and read, just not a dictionary, but many, many books. Start with the Russian classics, at least the one that was in school. And even if you read it, it will be useful to reread it – firstly, the perception of many things changes with age, and secondly, there was not always enough time at school to understand what you read, there you had to read “for a tick”.

    Read, communicate with people who read a lot, and learn foreign languages. This is unlikely to happen quickly, but your vocabulary will definitely increase.

  2. In principle, the above has already been answered, but I will add that just reading the dictionary of your native language or a foreign language does not make sense, you need to read new words in context, then the brain will easily perceive and remember them

  3. The answer is simple-read. After all, reading is the main source of new information, and therefore new words. Read slowly and thoughtfully, and ideally also out loud, then new words will settle in your memory, which you will be able to use in your speech in the future.

    If you encounter new words, use the dictionary. But don't just look at the meaning of the words in it and then close it, because it's so very difficult to remember and then apply these words. There is one effective way. You need to take cards, on one side you write the word you want to remember, on the other – its meaning, synonyms and usage examples.

    Further, after reading the text, you can make a presentation, this helps to significantly expand your active vocabulary. These statements are suitable for situations where you have read a text that contains a lot of unfamiliar words. Make a short written or oral retelling of this text using these words, and they will remain in your memory.

    And, of course, communication is the easiest way to significantly increase your vocabulary, as well as practice new words. The more communication you have, the better.
