4 Key Principles that Help Students Grow their Vocabulary

FastInfo logoBy FastInfo Class Published On 19 Jun 2021 Category Spoken English

People mostly talk about increasing the vocabulary, and it is somehow similar to making your own gallery of words. We add a lot of words in our gallery, but how many of them do we remember? What can be done to remember all of them? And how can we help our students to get used to the words as well as how to utilize what they’ve learnt? We can -- Remodel the classroom into ‘Gallery of Words’. The following pointers give you insight on the ways you can grow your Vocabulary or Improve your vocabulary:

  • Observe: Observing conversations is like choosing which words we’re going to add to our gallery– it's like observing pictures we admire in other people’s galleries that we’d like to have in ours.

To observe vocabulary, it has to be noticeable, or striking, in some way. We can help to make vocabulary more noticeable for learners by drawing their attention to the items and by motivating them to make meaningful sentences with them and create a personal connection with the words.

  • Organize: To retain the words easily, we need to organize them in a simple method by properly organizing them and selecting which ones can be used and which cannot be. This process of organizing words is just like selecting the files you need and removing the files you do not.

This process of organizing needs decision-making and categorizing words according to their meaning, or matching them with synonyms and antonyms. The best way to use the words kept in ‘Gallery of Words’ is to make sure that students must choose words that can be used in their conversations daily to keep them fresh.

  • Recapitulate: For the best way to remember a word is to have a recapitulation of it regularly. Recapitulation and Memorization can therefore be an essential part of learning, but the more it is contextualized the more it’s better. So, students should try and learn short texts which contain the vocabulary or work on learning words from a particular text, and also remember as much as they can of the context in which those words were used.

This kind of contextualization will help students to learn not only individual words but also how to use them, making it more likely that students will retain and make use of them.

  • Recover: Finally, the last principle is to Recover the context or fight to remember those words when we have perhaps partly lost. It’s a little like the work of searching files in our gallery. We know from research and development that regular recycling and coming back to test what we have learnt, repeatedly, is what helps our vocabulary to improve.

At FastInfo Class we deliver the best way to learn English. English is one of the most common languages to communicate. We provide our students with the best platform to learn and practice at the same time.
