Vocabulary- Currency of Communication
A great vocabulary opens portals of opportunities, where none existed. Ultimately, vocabulary is an extension of your persona. An impactful vocabulary helps express yourself clearly and articulate your objectives with clarity. A linguistic vocabulary is also identical to a thinking vocabulary, and you will be able to connect complex thoughts with concise precision. Since comprehension is the ultimate goal of reading, the importance of vocabulary development cannot be overestimated. A robust vocabulary improves all areas of communication — listening, speaking, reading as well as writing.
Different Techniques for Learning Vocabulary
Flash cards–Simple flappable tools that pose the question one side with answers on the other side. We extend this amazingly successful learning methodology and apply it to learn new words.
Root Words- Root words help you to break down large, new words into smaller units to discover their meanings. Learning just one root word can help you understand several words in English. So, by learning just 20 or 30 root words, you can expand your English vocabulary to include hundreds of new words.
Picture Vocabulary– “An image is worth thousand words”. Visual aids are important for language learners because humans think in images. “When we hear a sentence…[when] somebody is talking to us, we see the pictures. We don’t see the words. We don’t see the sentence in our brain. Like ‘Yesterday, I went to the beach.’ If I tell you that, you will see me on the beach. You will not see the sentence in written form.”
Mnemonics – Mental tools used to recall information better. Most mnemonics tools involve creating mental imagery to trigger your memory. The advantages of mnemonics are two-fold. First, they help students encode information in long-term memory. And, second, and which is even more important, mnemonics help students retrieve information from long-term memory. Mnemonics serve almost like a fishing line.
Word Map–In a word map, you write a central word or idea in the middle and connect it with lines to related words. This helps to build mental associations between related ideas.
