How do I increase my vocabulary and actually remember the words?
Thanks for A2A. Increasing vocabulary and actually recapitulating the exact words as when required whilst speaking or writing has lot to do with how you study a new language, or make an effort in remembering those words and more importantly, your particular cognitive power associated with your brain.The fundamental reason it boils down to is - some folks are inherently good in remembering (not memorizing) new words. During my undergrads where I lived in Moscow; I picked up new Russian words within weeks, could speak incorrectly within 6 months and fluently within 1 year. I did this without attending a single class of Russian language at my undergrads, which was mandatory but I prefered spending this time in cafes/canteens with my Russian friends, cause picked up the language faster from them. In 6 months, the teacher teaching us was flabbergasted; cause I could frame sentences and could express myself in general short sentences. What I used to do was get all the words down when my friends used to speak amongst themselves and use it in my speech next day. Used to make hilarious mistakes but my batchmates were loving and kind enough to correct me always!!!! Now, the retaining power of these words stuck with me… I speak Russian fluently today as well.On the other hand, my Russian fiancée who became my wife a few months ago and moved to Bangalore… she speaks Russian only. So she took the other approach. Sat down and over weeks created a thick notebook of English words she can use in her day to day life in India. I got her some books and a teacher for the basic grammar; but she used the Internet exclusively. She can communicate more or less in English today and express her desires whilst shopping (though she needs a lot of catching up to do in bargaining!!!!). A desire is needed inherently to be a good communicator in any language.For specifically remembering tough words, you can write them down and follow my wife's process OR just remember them like myself which I believe is not a very good process in itself; cause as I get older and my brain-cells die… am sure I will forget a lot of words that I know. I speak/read/write Bengali, Hindi, English, Russian fluently and basic French, German and Latin.
