How to learn foreign words?
I Came somehow home to the friend. The door entrance is open, inside is silent, I think, can happened that … I go further and I see … In the room though hang up the axe, stubs in an ashtray are not located any more, and my friend sits with the depressed look and speaks in beard something muffled. It appears, happened. The person decided to join English and culture. Yes only from the very beginning rested a forehead against a wall. And the name to a wall of that - lexicon, a lexicon.
By the way, philologists counted that the main percent of time spent for learning of foreign language is the share of mastering lexicon. For luck my friend, I conduct English courses. Having doubted efficiency of traditional methods, I try to find something new. And which - that, happens, I find, and it works. Here also shared a couple of councils with the friend. Perhaps and they will help you.
Council the first . Do not jag separate words. You should not take the dictionary and from songs to study it. All the same out of a context it is almost impossible to remember the necessary value. Besides, even if you remembered the word thus, the possibility of its incorrect use is all the same big. We draw a conclusion - you learn phrases. People whose language you learn too once studied it. Learned phrases, however, they did it more at the subconscious level, you should do it consciously. Having met the new word, do not take it out of a context. Learn the phrase.
“ Well, - you can object, - here and so there is no time, but also to learn phrases … “ Anything similar. The researches conducted by the American philologists showed that use of this method allows to accelerate learning of foreign language by 4 - 5 times. Only ponder, you will be able to learn a foreign language 4 times quicker. Moreover, a subject of our conversation - lexicon, but using this way, you will more deeply and quicker master grammar. Pleasant side effect, isn`t it?
Council of the second . If you begin to learn language after 20 - ti years, then your memory and perception are already rather satiated information and impressions. It is known that storing durability depends on brightness of perception. And so there is a way “ to refresh “ memory and perception. Begin to use figurative thinking. All of us use it in the childhood, then somehow we forget about it, we begin to operate with abstract concepts. How to develop figurative thinking - a subject of separate article which I hope to write a little later.
And so, the most effective reception of storing of the new word - its linkng with the designated image. Meeting the word tree , you do not cram - a tree, a tree … To present this tree enough and few times to call it the word tree, still new to you . We do not forget to use phrases. Pluses of this way - time for the mental translation is not spent that takes plenty of time at conversation. If you not the translator, to you it is simple - naprosto it is not necessary.
And council the third . Constantly be engaged in repetition of the taken place lexicon. Only thus you will be able to transfer new words to active lexicon, that is will be able to use them in conversations. To talk there is nobody? You speak with yourself - the clever interlocutor taking of you the hint, it is always pleasant. Play upon words. Build of them offers, stories, write articles. Use the learned phrases, let them do not lie dead freight. You approach studying of language creatively and be not afraid to experiment. It will surely yield the results.
Well, my friend already quite decently expresses in English, these councils were useful to him, I hope, they will be useful to you too.
