You'll also discover two additional benefits (other than a larger vocabulary) of applying this way of building your vocabulary.
I also talk about one dump mistake people make when improving their vocabulary.
Hello! Here are the links the to resources mentioned in the video:
Sorry for my terrible pronunciation of the word "vocabulary." This is really embarrassing. Before uploading the video I thought people wouldn't care much about it. Apparently, I was wrong.
I have a problem: I have a book that I like a lot and I started reading it, but there are too many words that I don't undertand, so I decided to write down those words and look for their meanings and also look up on the internet sentences with each word, but this process is too slow for me and the book is big, so that I want to finish reading the book, but it seems that I will never finish and that makes me feel desperate 😭😥😖😫 Oh please, someone help me with this.
are you korean? most koreans i've come across with have a hard time pronouncing the letter R and it is okay. English isn't your first language and you can speak your native language more than the people bashing you on here. more power!
Granted, your pronunciation is not "perfect", but sounding "native" takes practice as well. Some people have a knack for accents while others never will achieve this. Likewise, any "native" English speaker may sound strange speaking a foreign language like Chinese, Korean, Japanese etc. Thus, anybody who criticises this aspect of the video does not understand the purpose of the content, and misses the point of the exercise.You are more credible because you are an ESL learner. When one learns from her/his peers, s/he is more receptive to the lesson than some teacher just giving more directives.
You obviously have a large following, and your ideas are not wrong. Context is the most important component of grammar and vocabulary. ESL learners wanting to sound "native" is an old way of thinking, especially with the variety of English dialects evolving in Asia (Chinglish, Singlish, Konglish, Hinglish etc.), which will never sound "native". Listening to and familiarising with all of these variants is important for teachers and learners of English.
Knowing how to communicate in context is true mastery and should be the new goal. A phenomenal online system my students learn vocabulary through is Membean. Anybody interested in contextual English vocabulary should start here. Membean teaches English vocabulary from middle school to graduate school level all in context, and not only has the empirical research to support it, but also observable gains in the classroom from students.
Just watch movies or videos in English :D works just as well as reading and also improves your pronunciation :D my English nowadays is completely fluent, because I forced myself to bingewatch TV shows for 1.5 years xD it usually took about 1/2 seasons until it clicked and my understanding went from nothing to everything in one moment xD xD
Hi here's a free tool to memorize vocabulary on the fly.
As a developer of this service and a non-native English speaker.
I learn about 200~300 new words monthly during my break time. (15min a day)
Without arranging a specific time to memorize those words.
Hello! Thank you for a helpful video! But I have difficult when I try to translate from English into Vietnamese. I read an English book and it takes a lot of time to translate into my languague! Can you help me? Can you tell me how can I do to translate easily?
Please reply me! Thanks.
P/s: My English isn't good.
Your work is magnificent! I never realized that you're a non-native speaker until you mentioned that. Go ahead and don't worry about the pronunciation of some words because most people, including me, find it hard to reach your level. Thanks a lot!
