One of the difficulties in learning English is vocabulary. Students are complaining all the time that they can’t remember new words. According to research, an ESL student learns about 2,500 new words a year. That may sound like a lot, but this is just in average. You can actually learn more. How do you remember all these words? Well, it is really not that difficult. How do you know your classmates? Do you remember everyone’s face the first day? No. By the end of the semester, you know everyone well. Why? Because you see each other every day. Learning English is the same. If you want to remember the new words, you must see them often. When you do a lot of reading, you see words you learned often, and you remember the new words naturally. So remember new words in their contexts. It is easier to remember them that way, and then you know how to use them once they are remembered.
