Online Tools And Resources For Vocabulary Building

   Dear Dan,
   Hi! How are you? I hope you’re fine. Thanks for your letter. I’m glad that you asked me for help. I’ll gladly tell you about online tools and resources which help you to brush up on all you learnt before.
   As for me, you must start with vocabulary tools to keep your mind on words in the context, meanings of the words and how memorize it, what is really important to speak fluently. You should choose a method of using tools to improve your skills. In my case, I chosen three vocabulary tools such a Fraze.it, Snappywords and Quizlet. It’s effective, when you create flashcards by yourself, then you concentrate the mind on memorizing these words and finally make progress in your English.
   Furthermore, it’s appropriate to get better your English using vocabulary building tools and games. I recommend you Lingro and Rewordify, because then you will read the texts with remarkable ease. Finally, I wish you good luck and make the most of works during the day. I’m sure that your vocabulary will expand and you’ll  be motivated about your result.
   I hope these methods will help. Write me about your result.
   Best wishes,
   Vicky

Dictionary Daze!

   It is realy important to be able to use the dictionary correctly and know your dictionary during making progress in your study. First of all, chose the dictionary which is relevant to your knowledge, for instance prescriptive or descriptive, bilingual or monolingual. Also don’t forget that it is more useful to have the paper dictionary than to look a word up in the electronic dictionary. Besides, don’t use the dictionary all time, because It’s better to make yourself understood or to guess the meaning of word. Finally, you should be aware of using dictionary effectively. Before you start to work with dictionary, understand from the context what part of speech the word is. It is appropriate to make sentences with words and learn the collocations what is part and parcel to improve your language skills. Because you know that not all words can be translated. So be careful and make the notes of using  words.  But remember that dictionary is for checking words out but not for learning new words.   Remember that your vocabulary expands when you work with the dictionary not regularly but effectively.   Chose a method for using dictionary, which help you to make your speech fluent. Concentrate the mind on grammar, syntax, vocabulary and conversation skills.

Techniques for organising vocabulary!

   To my mind it is so important to learn the words adopting a method which help you to remember word. As for me, building your own vocabulary is the first step to know language and understand other people. I found the way of doing vocabulary.  
   First of all, I look an unknown word up in the dictionary and write out definition, transcription and collocations from the dictionary to my own vocabulary. Then I make sentences with this word and try to imagine the meaning of the word. However, I think that is effective to repeat the word several times and write it also several times. Finally, I write the words on flashcards and I repeat it as much as possible to remember the word.
   Of course, I would like to try new techniques for organising vocabulary, especially record myself, mnemonics, play games and draw a picture for each word.
