Ten Best Vocabulary Learning Tips The Ten Best Vocabulary Learning Tips Vocabulary Learning Tip One: Read, Read, Read! Most vocabulary words are learned from context. Go Play Our Vocabulary Games Vocabulary Learning Tip Ten: Get excited about words! Нет слов: как расширить свой активный лексикон О том, как увеличить свой словарный запас, написано немало статей. Однако у большинства из них есть заметный недостаток: в них говорится об обогащении лексикона в целом, без деления на активный и пассивный вокабуляр. Между тем, если мы хотим сделать свою речь выразительной и убедительной, стоит сфокусироваться на расширении только активного словарного запаса и на переводе определенного пласта лексики из пассивного резерва в активное использование. T&P рассказывают о том, как справиться с поставленной задачей. Признак образованности Проблема расширения активного словарного запаса чаще встает при изучении иностранного языка, чем в процессе использования родного. Об увеличении вокабуляра в пределах родного языка мы задумываемся, если надо произвести впечатление на аудиторию или хочется поразить красноречием собеседника — то есть, когда к делу подключаются эмоции. Расчистить территорию Вспомнить синонимы Возьмите за правило писать посты в соцсети, тратя на это по 10 минут три раза в день.

Vocabla ESL About Us My name is Andrew Lawton and I am a Spanish teacher in Austin, TX. A couple of years ago I taught an informal ESL class and really enjoyed it. This experience inspired me to come up with my own lessons and worksheets to share with teachers and students for free. I created this website to help an intermediate to advanced ESL student work on his or her real world English communication skills. The lessons cover situations one would encounter while living in an English speaking country. The topics range from serious situations, like a hospital stay or a conversation with your child’s teacher, to lighter “fun” topics. As a person who learned a second language later on in life, I feel there is a need for lessons that focus on “real world” expressions for “every day” situations. The advanced lessons on my site focus on helping English learners who already have basic grammar down, but need improvements with overall fluency. The site is free to use. Andrew
