How to Build Your Vocabulary

  1. The most obvious way to increase your vocabulary is to read regularly. As you read, you will come across words that you don't know. This will give you the chance to start including them in your own vocabulary.
  2. dictionary can be an invaluable tool in this endeavor. This is because you need to know what words mean if you are to include them in your regular vernacular. Plus, you can find a lot of unknown words in there, too.
  3. If you want to practice the words you just learned, writing can be very helpful. As you write (e.g. on your journal) make it a point to employ those new words, so you can start getting accustomed to including them.
  4. A way to build your vocabulary both in an active and passive manner is to have conversations. First, listen for unknown words your interlocutor may utter and notice how they use them. Then, use your chance to talk as an opportunity to practice your newly-learned words.
  5. Finally, you can make vocabulary building fun with games. For example, a crossword puzzle or a game of Scrabble can do wonders for your vocabulary.
