I have been using a method like this, I take a word and think off some sentences in English for explane myself what it means. And also I draw a simple picture for remember it better. It is slowly, but efficiently.

Thursday, November 3rd 2016

Thanks James!!Nice lesson!!But from my own experience, the best way to remember vocabulary is to listen to similar words once and again, for example by listening songs, and, of course, by watching videos from Engvid ;)

Thursday, November 3rd 2016

Thanks James! Great work again :)
I follow similar method, but not all the four steps together.
These protocols will definitely enhance vocabulary if followed sincerely.

Thursday, November 3rd 2016

Thank you for this lesson! understanding is greater than knowing!

Thursday, November 3rd 2016


Thursday, November 3rd 2016

    Hi Bruso!

    That’s the first time I find a comment of a Portuguese person in Engvid, and I am very happy for that! I am proud for meeting other Portuguese speakers here writing in English so well like you (by the way, did you notice James’s T-shirt in this lesson?).

    To tell you the truth, I have a dream to visit Portugal. She must be a beautiful country!

    Take care, my friend!

Excellent way to get more vocabulary. I loved it, and I am gonna practice from now on.
But I have a question how can I do with words that have more than use? I mean there are words that you can use like adjectives, adverbs or nouns. The same method is valid for those sort of words?

Well, we have learnt how to use the famous English Idioms with a verb like “shoot, shot, shot” which means three different questions, for gunners, for pilots and for gardeners but the Idioms “shoot the shit” and “firing blanks” have been the first time I have listened them. Thanks teacher James from engvid, good performance and explanation. Regards.

    Tnx a lot!

    Sunday, November 6th 2016

Good Lesson James. Actually I use different method to learn new vocabularies. First, I search in dictionary (English-English) and then I write out the dictionary definition of the word and after that I realise that I learn more words writting it out because sometimes I see new words and I begin the cicle again :D

Sunday, November 6th 2016

Thanks for the lesson! Is very important to know diverse meanings of the words and various situations where we can replace them for other ones, preserving the content of the message. Useful method!

Sunday, November 6th 2016

thanks a lot!

Saturday, November 12th 2016

It was useful. )))

Saturday, November 12th 2016

Thanks James I really understand that.

Saturday, November 12th 2016

What an amazing way to learn new words. As a writer this exercise will make my writing clearer. I often like to use more complicated words when I write a sentence. I might write he announced “John come here.” Rather than He said “john come here.” and for a lot of different reasons. Sometimes I’m tired of saying ‘said’ and other times I want the character to be more formal. This exercise has taught me to make a word web for both said and announced so I can use both in a more determined way. English is my only language and I never knew anything like making a word web.
