  1. 🔹 You need to SEE the English word. we remember more with our eyes than with our ears. and, see inside the text or at least phrases. at the same time, cards with individual words will not work for a long time.

    words in the phrases�- are connected by a thread of meaning. the words in the list are a bunch of small, smooth, one-size-fits-all, almost weightless beads. which will always run away.

    You need to HEAR the word and speak it yourself. it doesn't always read as it is written. You can get voice input by clicking on the speaker icon in the lower-left corner of the Google Translate window.�

    WRITING it down increases the efficiency of memorizing words by 8-12 times more than if we just see, hear, and underline or highlight important words in the text with a marker. print electronically is 4-6 times less efficient, but 10 times faster in terms of speed. therefore, at the initial stage, I advise you to write by hand, then in electronic form.

    I give this advice [as well as others] from personal experience. I tried many times with different languages to just emphasize important words [because writing is slow], but then I kept going back to writing them down.�

    🔹 when recording, you need to GROUP by any attribute. the easiest way is to use nouns, adjectives, and verbs. best of all: according to the situations that we face in life – satisfaction of needs, purchase of things and services, relationships with other people, surrounding objects and phenomena.

    these are large groups. they should be divided into subgroups, for example, acquisition: the ability to do – get-an estate-for the sake of this movement.�

    нераз unworn shoes almost always rub your foot. and it takes several walkers to adapt. the unused word” presses ” always. for words, only one “way out” is enough to make them work. such that the brain will not be afraid to work with them, perform verbal operations.

    we have a subconscious fear of coming across unknown meanings of the word. the fear that the listener will decipher the word not in the sense that we put in it. this is especially true for verbs, and to a lesser extent for adjectives. there are no problems with nouns, because they are easy to visualize, to imagine a clear picture.

    therefore, the words you learn should be applied in practice: in correspondence or through a conversation. [moreover, it is better to first correspond with a friend, then talk on Skype. so we will already know the situation and voice what was previously written with minor modifications].�

    as soon as we have WRITTEN or SAID a phrase with a new word to someone once, and we see that there are no misunderstandings, the brain immediately “gives the green light” to this word. �

    22 WAYS TO MEMORIZE foreign words. well written by another person, I commented on his advice and added my own. I attached screenshots of how I took notes when studying English, Chinese, Spanish, and Italian.

  2. 1) Unlike previous commenters, I would recommend a very high-quality application that helped me learn a lot of words in a fairly short time, and not just learn them, but also remember them, put them in long-term memory and use them until now.

    This is the ReWord app. The idea is to use flash cards and repeat at specific intervals according to the Ebbinghouse forgetting curve. In general, a very useful and effective application.

    2) Learn words in context, try to understand their structure and place in the sentence. This is an important skill in learning a foreign language.

    Good luck practicing the language ✌ ️

  3. I was once advised to cut up small pieces of paper, write English words on one side, translate them on the other, and carry them in my pocket. I took out a piece of paper – “creek”, remembered, yeah, “stream”. I looked – and really did. I took out another one – “pray”, no, I don't remember. Turned it over – “pray”. As you memorize, the pieces of paper are replaced with new ones.

    I didn't use this method myself, I was too lazy and had no problems memorizing it.

    1. Learn words from context.

    It is quite difficult to learn words if they are written in a list in the dictionary. This method can only be used if you are working with a teacher who will help you use these words in context, build a dialogue with you using these new words, and translate a list of new words from your passive vocabulary to the active one.

    If you are at the stage of self-study of English, it is best to memorize words in the context of the topic that interests you.

    1. Watch movies with subtitles.

    This method of learning new words uses two types of memory: visual and auditory. Subtitles are important because they will help you be 100% sure what the word just sounded like and how it is spelled. You will agree that it is difficult to remember what you are not sure enough about.

    1. Don't get caught up in every new word.

    When learning words, you should not grab each new word and run to write it out in the dictionary. If only because the number of words in the English language is incredible!

    For starters, it's best to memorize the word base that you need, depending on your age and lifestyle. Of course, an experienced English teacher will be able to guide you in the right direction and tell you what to focus on.

    1. Read it.

    You may be surprised, but now we are not even talking about reading in English, but about reading in your native language. It doesn't matter if it's fiction or high-quality articles.

    Reading helps to make your thinking more flexible and develops your memory, thereby improving the memorization of new words in English.

    You can also read a lot of useful tips on the website.

  4. Learn not individual words, but word combinations. For memory, a phrase is still 1 unit of information.

    Write it down, read it out loud, and listen to what it sounds like-at least in the performance of a Google translator https://translate.google.ru ” it's better than a transcription read by a non-native speaker.”
