  • Hi, everybody! Welcome back to Top Words. My name is Alisha, and today we're going

  • to talk about 10 different ways to remember words. So these are actually

  • some ways to remember words that you have sent into us, so I'm really excited

  • to see what your recommendations are! I study other languages, so let's talk

  • about it! Let's see. I associate new words with words that sound similar in my

  • native language. If you're studying English, your native language might share

  • some words. So, like, I'm studying Japanese, and for example the word "chocolate"

  • sounds very very similar in Japanese. So in English the word is "chocolate",

  • in Japanese the word is "chokoretto" so it sounds similar. So that's an easy

  • word for me to remember. I learned about the roots of words and how different

  • words are related to each other. Many words in English have roots in very very

  • old languages like Latin, so a word like omniscient, for example, can be broken

  • down into maybe two parts: the omni-, "omni" meaning "all" or "everything";

  • and -scient, the "scient" part relates to "knowledge" or "knowing". So together the word means "all

  • knowing", omniscient. And maybe you can guess the meaning even if it's the first

  • time you've seen the word. Okay!

  • I listened to songs and memorize the lyrics.

  • This is also a common way to to help kids learn things, too, through songs.

  • Opposite of b, plus or minus the square root of b squared minus 4ac all over 2a.

  • It's a quadratic function equation; because of the song, it's still in my

  • head! Thank you Mrs. Syme.

  • I often watch TV or YouTube videos that are designed for young children.

  • That's how children in the native language learn, so it's a

  • great tool for you, don't be embarrassed to do that, I do that! In English, we have

  • Dora the Explorer, we have Sesame Street, we have another channel that's made for

  • children's content, but it could be useful for you, it's called Kids VS Life.

  • So please be sure to check that out.

  • I speak as often as possible with native speakers. A native speaker can go, "ah!

  • that's a strange thing that you're saying." So there are a lot of

  • small factors that you can't get unless you're speaking with a native speaker, so

  • this is a really really great tip. If you're interested in doing this with us,

  • we have on EnglishClass101.com a special subscription which is called the

  • elite level of subscription, where you get to actually study with one of our

  • teachers here. So if you don't have somebody that you can study with now,

  • that might be a way to do it. Please check that out if you're interested.

  • I tried to use the language routinely in the context of daily life.

  • when you're alone, just doing stuff at

  • home, like, making breakfast or cooking, or doing the laundry, if you use the

  • language, just to say, like, now I'm going to, I don't know, cut vegetables, or

  • Oh! I need to do laundry later today, or thinking about your appointment, whatever.

  • Another good example is, really, I put my phone into my target language. You're

  • telling little stories when you're having conversations with people, so get

  • used to telling yourself the story. I use repetition reading, writing, and speaking

  • words over and over again. Keep repeating in your studies, even if it feels like,

  • you know, you're not making any progress, you are just the act of doing that

  • repetition can be helpful for you. If a football player never throws a football,

  • he's not going to be able to throw it very well, is he?

  • You have to repeat, repeat, repeat, and then when you're faced with the actual

  • situation where you need to throw the football, you need to use that vocabulary

  • word, you're ready,

  • you already know how to say the word. So yes, repeat, it's good. I try to think in

  • English so it becomes natural to my thought process. I do this, I think about

  • what I need to do, I think about what I have done, I think about what I'm going

  • to do, and so in that way, you can practice past tense, future tense, and

  • present tense. Recently this has been happening to me, I've started dreaming in

  • Japanese from time to time, or I dream bilingually. It's exciting, I think.

  • I tried to use the word in a simple sentence. So I learned whole phrases, not

  • just individual words. Yes, this is a huge tip! So vocabulary is important, of course.

  • If you don't know a keyword you might miss the meaning of something, but

  • context is important, too. So there might be two words which seemed very similar,

  • like big and large, for example, but when should i use large? When should i use big?

  • Like, if you're clothes shopping and you say "do you have this in a big-sized?" It

  • might not be the correct way to use the word, instead, "do you have this in a large

  • size?" is the correct phrase. so learning how to use the correct vocabulary word

  • at the correct time is important, and you can do that through studying sentences

  • and phrases instead of just vocabulary.

  • This is why reading is important, i think. Reading as much as possible, especially

  • the newspaper, helps me to remember words. When i was a kid, i just read everything

  • I was so into reading, I loved it! And I think that it helped, it actually

  • helped my language skills improve even in my native language! Again, at first

  • it's really hard to do and you might have to use a dictionary a lot, but

  • you'll learn gradually more natural speaking patterns, more natural writing

  • patterns, too, which will help you to sound more natural when you speak, and maybe it

  • can help your listening skills, too. When you can listen for those patterns that

  • you see in textbooks, that you see in newspapers and novels, whatever. It's a

  • great tool, reading. And thank goodness! That's the end! So those are 10 tips that

  • you can use to remember new words and new phrases, try them out!

  • I'm going to be doing my best with my target language, i hope that you do, too.

  • Thank you very much for watching, please, please, please subscribe to our channel

  • if you have not already, and we will see you again soon for more exciting

  • information. Bye!
