The single most important thing for any learner of a new language is learning the words for particular things. When we know what things are called in the target language, we feel that we are really on the way to learning.
There are a number of ways to memorise new lexemes (words). Some learners like using cards, with the word in English on one side, and the translation or definition on the other. These cards they then read from time to time, to test themselves. Others prefer to create vocabulary lists or word-webs. I have known learners to label all the objects in their house with visible labels so they can see what the things are called. Avid readers will read an article, marking new words with a text marker, to look up at a later stage and read a hundreds times until memorised.
However you choose to do it, learning the names for objects (and actions) renders a sense of achievement, understanding and a breakthrough in mastering the target language. Remembering the new lexemes, we at Elite Learning believe, comes with repeated exposure in different contexts – through saying them, hearing them being used in conversation, reading them and having to write them to complete a particular task. Using the words in different contexts numerous times is the key to being able to say that you have learned the world.
With around a quarter of a million words in the English language this task may seem huge, but with the proper help and guidance, such as that given at Elite Learning, the task will seem more doable and definitely fun.
