  • - [Tiffani] As an English learner,

  • you sometimes experience a problem

  • when you're reading something

  • or even when you're having a conversation with people

  • and even sometimes

  • when you're listening to a podcast or other audio file.

  • This problem is vocabulary.

  • But there is a formula.

  • This formula will help you to learn 1,000

  • English vocabulary words

  • and that's what I will teach you today.

  • Welcome to Speak English With Tiffani.

  • I'm teacher Tiffani, let's jump right in.

  • Okay, so here's the problem.

  • The problem is you want to improve your English vocabulary

  • but it just seems too hard.

  • Now let's look at this a little closer.

  • So the first thing is you memorize lots of words

  • but what happens is you can't remember or use them.

  • Many of my students have told me

  • that they memorize vocabulary words

  • but then when they get in conversations,

  • they're not able to use them and that's what happens.

  • Or you start off strong

  • but what happens is you get tired and often give up.

  • And often give up completely.

  • Now to be honest with you I also experienced the same thing

  • when I was studying Korean.

  • I would study hundreds of vocabulary words

  • but then after two or three weeks

  • I would get tired and just stop.

  • So again, you start off strong

  • but you get tired and often give up completely.

  • This is the problem.

  • Now there is a solution.

  • The solution is three words lead to 1,000 words.

  • Now don't worry I'm going to explain this very clearly

  • and it will really help you to learn 1,000 words.

  • Alright now the first aspect of this solution,

  • before I explain it in detail,

  • is the memorization and repetition.

  • Memorization and repetition is so important

  • because it is a set pattern that will help your brain.

  • That will help your brain.

  • Now remember in one of my previous video lessons

  • I explained how your brain works, okay?

  • There are certain triggers

  • that help your brain remember certain things

  • so a set pattern will also help your brain

  • when you are trying to remember

  • or memorize English vocabulary words

  • and the next thing is learn and use.

  • Many times you will learn vocabulary words

  • but you're not able to use them.

  • This solution, this formula I'm gonna teach you,

  • will help you do both.

  • So again this will help you use them in daily life.

  • When you meet someone that is a native English speaker

  • or even another English learner,

  • you can use the words that you're learning, okay?

  • Alright, so the breakdown.

  • Let's look at

  • the breakdown of this solution or this formula.

  • Okay so again 1,000 words by doing three words each day.

  • There's five parts,

  • the select, memorize, visualize, apply, and review.

  • Okay so let's look at the breakdown

  • in a little bit more detail.

  • The first section is select, so you select the three words

  • that you will use for that day.

  • Now remember in the beginning I said this is a formula

  • and it's actually a part of a 16 day cycle.

  • Now the first part of the cycle is the select column,

  • the first column, so on the first day, day one,

  • you will learn only three words.

  • And each day after that

  • you're only learning three new words.

  • Now let me explain exactly how this selection happens, okay?

  • So once again, you select the words

  • that you will use for that day,

  • this is how it's going to happen,

  • so let's start right here on top.

  • There are many different ways that you can select words.

  • Let's say for example that you are watching something on TV

  • so you can select words from

  • TV shows or movies that you watch.

  • You may have a favorite

  • American television show that you watch

  • and you may hear a vocabulary word that you don't know

  • so you can choose it from the television show

  • or you may even have a special book

  • or magazine or newspaper that you enjoy reading,

  • an English newspaper or magazine.

  • So you can pick a vocabulary word

  • from books, magazines, or the newspaper,

  • or the newspapers you read, newspapers that you read.

  • The other method you can use

  • actually is something that you may already have inside.

  • So this is your brain.

  • So there are some words that you already know.

  • You can actually look for or find synonyms, okay?

  • Find synonyms for words you already know.

  • For example, let's say I already know the word big,

  • that's a word that you already know

  • but a synonym for the word big is enormous.

  • So I already know this word

  • but enormous is a synonym for that word, okay?

  • So these are three different ways

  • you can actually select vocabulary words.

  • Okay let's keep going.

  • The next part of the breakdown is to memorize.

  • You're going to memorize the definitions

  • of the words from the previous day

  • so again let's look at our 16 day cycle.

  • Now we've moved to the second column, the memorize column.

  • Now on the far left you see the day column,

  • then next the select, and then next the memorize.

  • So on day one you only memorized or selected three words.

  • Now on day two you still need to select three new words

  • but now is when you're going to memorize

  • the three words you looked up the first day.

  • It's very important, you're memorizing on the second day.

  • Let's go in more detail, okay?

  • So again, memorize the definitions of the words

  • from the previous day.

  • Okay so let's look at it a little closer.

  • So here's what's gonna happen,

  • so right here, let's give him some glasses, okay?

  • Let's give this student some glasses.

  • So we have this student, this English learner right here.

  • So what's gonna happen?

  • The first thing is to read over the words and meanings.

  • You're going to think about them.

  • Remember I chose enormous

  • so I'm gonna look over the word enormous and realize,

  • ah, this means big, this means big.

  • The next thing you're going to do is

  • you're going to make something, okay?

  • I'll explain exactly what these are,

  • I can write really tiny, alright so what you're going to do,

  • let's put RD, let's put it like this.

  • You're going to make flash cards for each word.

  • Remember it's not gonna take you a long time

  • because it's only for three words, okay?

  • Make flashcards and then what you're going to do,

  • let's put a little clock right here for us,

  • got a little clock right here, put a little bell on top.

  • Okay what you're going to do is

  • time yourself as you memorize,

  • make this O a little better, as you memorize each word.

  • You want to get to the point to where

  • you can memorize and know three words in 30 seconds.

  • This is your goal.

  • This is your goal.

  • Alright so let's keep going to the next phase.

  • Alright so the next phase is to visualize.

  • Now for the visualizing step

  • you're gonna select various images

  • that go along with each of the vocabulary words.

  • Use them to memorize the words more.

  • Okay so let's go back and look at the 16 day cycle again.

  • So now we're on the next column, the visualize column.

  • Alright so again on day one we selected three words,

  • day two we also selected three words but then we also added

  • the memorizing of the first three words

  • and we're also going to be

  • visualizing on that day the first three words.

  • Now again I'm gonna explain it very clearly

  • so let's jump in to explain it very clearly,

  • again, selecting various images

  • that go along with each of the vocabulary words,

  • use them to memorize the words more.

  • So here we go, alright so the first thing you need to do,

  • let's do a little head right here.

  • Student with their eyes closed.

  • His brain right here, he's thinking, his mind.

  • Alright so what's gonna happen is

  • you first need to think about each word and

  • see what picture pops into your head.

  • This is important because everyone is different.

  • If I say good food, the first thing that pops in my mind

  • may be different from what pops in your mind

  • so it's important to see what pops into your mind.

  • Now the next thing you're going to do is

  • you're going to get on the computer,

  • you're gonna get on the computer

  • and what you're going to do is

  • you're going to go online

  • and find an image that matches, okay?

  • Find an image that matches what you saw in your mind.

  • Now again remember it's only for three words

  • so it's not gonna take you a long time

  • but go online and find an image that matches each word

  • so you're looking for three images, three images.

  • Now after you find the images, what you're going to do is

  • you're going to make another flashcard

  • but this time instead of the word being on the top,

  • the word will be on the bottom

  • and on top you will place the image

  • so again you're going to

  • finally make image flash cards and practice with them.

  • Remember these steps are so important

  • because you need to practice and learn vocabulary

  • in different ways,

  • not just sitting and looking at a book and memorizing.

  • Your brain needs to see things that are visual

  • and connected to different situations

  • in order for you to learn and use the vocabulary words

  • so let's keep going.

  • Alright so the next step is to apply.

  • Now that you know the meanings,

  • use each of the vocabulary words

  • in a sentence that you create.

  • Okay so again the 16 day cycle,

  • now we're on the next column, the apply column,

  • so again day one we just selected three new words.

  • Day two we selected three new words

  • and we also memorized and visualized the first three words

  • and now as we move down to day number three

  • we're still selecting three words,

  • we're memorizing what we learned

  • or what we selected the previous day and we're visualizing

  • and now we're applying the first three words.

  • Now this applying I will explain,

  • let's go and I will explain it in more detail.

  • So again now that you know the meanings,

  • use each of the vocabulary words

  • in a sentence that you create.

  • So here's what's gonna happen.

  • Let's have a student right here.

  • So we have this student right here, right?

  • Now this student is looking at something right now

  • so let's do this like this, let's have this right here,

  • give her some fingers so she's holding the book.

  • Okay so this student is looking at something right now.

  • What you're going to do is

  • you're going to review the meaning

  • and, this is the key right here, think about your life.

  • This is key.

  • Review the meaning and think about your life.

  • So here we go, let me show you an example,

  • so let's look at an example

  • so that you can understand exactly what this step means.

  • So let's say for example I have this right here.

  • This is my dictionary.

  • And the word I selected was enormous, enormous,

  • which means very big so again it means very big,

  • that's the definition I found in the dictionary, correct?

  • Now what's going to happen is

  • I'm going to look at the dictionary sentence example,

  • I'm gonna look for the dictionary sentence example

  • and let's say the dictionary says

  • the building is enormous, the building is enormous,

  • that's the pattern that the dictionary uses.

  • The building is enormous.

  • Now what I'm going to do is think about my life

  • and I'm gonna write my own sentence

  • so you're going to write your sentence so your sentence
