    I read vocabulary everyday but i cant memorise.Please suggest me how can I memorise vocabulary.

    • Hi, the reasons that most students are not able to remember new vocabulary is firstly because they don’t use it. Many students think that if they learn vocabulary from a list, they will remember it. Unfortunately, it is not that easy. You need to use the vocabulary. You could practice writing sentences with the vocabulary or read articles related to the vocabulary or practice using it when you speak. Secondly, you should not try and learn too many words in one day. Focus on a small list of words and practice using them each day. Lastly, you need to review the new vocabulary regularly. At the end of each week, you should review the list of vocabulary that you have learned and spend the weekend practicing it again. Hopefully, if you follow these suggestions you will retain more vocabulary and your range will increase.
      All the best
      Liz
