HOW TO study vocabulary and grammar
LEARNING FROM CONTEXT Word fields
Understand the definition Look up unfamiliar words: make sure you understand the definitions of all your new words.
Look for examples: do a simple online search and you will see the word in many different examples or contexts.
Make a word list, a word web, an image list ...
Group words together that belong to the same word field: e.g. outdoor hobbies vs indoor hobbies
LEARNING FROM REPETITION
Write individual words down or use the words in your own sentences.
Use flash cards. They are an easy way to review your vocabulary and to separate words into different categories.
Read through your list or look through your word webs. Cover up one half and go through the other half.
Say the word out loud a few times. You can even record yourself or explain the words to other people. Keep the (difficult) words visible: write them on sticky notes and hang them around your room.
