Improve Your Vocabulary | Study Tips | Grow your Vocabulary

Are you always searching for the right word? Today, we offer our best tips on how to improve your vocabulary. When you grow your vocabulary, it has a positive effect on ALL areas of communication – whether you are speaking or writing formally or informally. Being able to accurately describe your thoughts is an essential component of exchanging ideas with anyone.

If you need to grow your vocabulary in a hurry (for the SAT or GRE, for example), try our hints to increase your vocabulary in a directed way. Start by reading – both your current textbooks, as well as other books and articles that interest you. Pay special attention to words you don’t recognize. Seize those words and make them yours! Underline them, look them up in a dictionary and thesaurus, and if you still have trouble remembering them, make flashcards. We have another video with advice on how to best use flashcards here:

Words Words Words, and Words of Distinction.
