Here is a list of 10 ways to improve vocabulary and write better.
The best and most indispensable way to improve vocabulary is reading. And by reading, I don’t just mean a book a month or two books a year.
Many dictionary applications on phones have a word of the day feature, where the dictionary auto selects interesting words for you to use.
The easiest way to consciously build up vocabulary is to look up the dictionary.
Books are by no means the only source of rich language. Great language can be consumed anywhere – from pop culture to more elusive works of art.
Translation is the best possible way to both understand the meaning of a work of literature and imbibe its language.
Who said improving your vocabulary has to be boring or tedious? Simply playing word games that appear in your newspaper can help tremendously.
One of the best ways to learn anything new is to converse about it with someone experienced.
Writing regularly is just as important a part of increasing vocabulary as reading. And this is not stressed often enough.
The biggest problem with building vocabulary is not coming across new words but memorizing them and repeating them in future conversations.
Ultimately, the best way to build up vocabulary is to admire and appreciate words. The sound of words, how they roll off on your tongue.
