One of the biggest challenges to learning a new language is remembering all those new words each week.
One way to build vocabulary quickly is to use flash cards. Pick up a new word and write it down on a small card with its meaning. Keep the card with you for a day and look at it whenever you get time. Prop them up in your room over the week so that you notice them all the time. Try and use the new words when you are speaking to friends. The more you use these new words the quicker you will remember them!
Another hint is to keep a pencil and exercise book close at hand while reading. You can be reading a magazine, a comic, a novel or a newspaper or this blog! When you come across a word that you are unfamiliar with, write it in your vocabulary exercise book. Later, when you have time, pick up a dictionary and look up the words you have written.
