We have combined our vocabulary and conversation together because we believe that vocabulary improvement comes through the use of the vocabulary as you learn it.
The best way to establish this is through conversation. By applying the new vocabulary learnt in real situations the vocabulary is used correctly and the learner can
remember structures of the words used. Eg: nouns, verbs, adjectives etc…
Another aspect to studying vocabulary which we firmly believe, is that studying words in huge
quantities (as some students are led to believe) does not improve your vocabulary tremendously.
We have taught students who were told to learn up to 50 words per day, which in our opinion is
not a good method. Of those 50 words (which are memorized, not learnt), possibly 5-8 of those words will be remembered. This is because the words learnt are not applied in conversation or used in sentences, which is essential to learning and remembering.
Our basic rules to remember when studying vocabulary are:
