Ways to improve your vocabulary.

One forgets words as one forgets names.
One's vocabulary needs constant fertilizing or it will die.

We often struggle around putting words into a sentence.
Doesn't matter which language we are trying to learn or master, when it comes to using words we are confused. Whether while we are writing or speaking, we fumble with our sentences and use fillers like ah, um, etc. and end up feeling helpless to express ourselves. And to become confident about it, we need to have a good hold on using correct word at the right place or situation.
It is important to know which word to use to express the situation perfectly that you are trying to explain.

Strengthening your vocabulary helps you better in communicating and expressing the facts better. It makes you confident and smart.

There are many websites and apps now a days which publish a word everyday with it's meaning and way to use it. You can subscribe to those and get notification everyday.

When people give any speech, most of them are well prepared about their facts and they prepare beforehand what to say and how to say to the point of perfection. Listening to them speaking helps a lot as well.

  1. these are very good tips!! When I was in high school I used to get the SAT word of the day delivered to me by collegeboard.com. But personally I find that the best way to learn new words is by reading. That way I can see how it is used and if I see it often enough then I will remember it

    1. Hey Helen,
      I agree with you, reading is the best way to improve our vocabulary. It’s great you found all other tips helpful as well. Thank you 🙂

  2. Great post! Reading and watching movies/series works like wonders when you’re trying to build your vocabulary.

  3. Dear Pratha

    The word is a tool

    with the lips
    the sound of the tongue
    only to you

    Your eyes
    according to their meaning
    full of devotion
    moist to make

    their treasure from the chest
    of the heart
    underlines what has been said
    with gestures


    take all words back into oblivion
    when “your” name shines in me
    in flesh and blood
