When we are younger, we spend an enormous amount of time learning new words on a daily basis. Throughout school, we are taught and expand our vocabulary at an incredible rate. Then, when we graduate, we fall into a daily pattern, forgetting how important learning new words can be. Why? It could be because we simply aren’t forced to learn anymore. As adults, we fall into that belief that we know enough. It is easier and quicker to go with what we already know. It doesn’t have to be that way though. In today’s world, words are literally at your fingertips. Here’s a list of ways you can easily expand your vocabulary on a daily basis:
Whether it is a book, newspaper or magazine, reading expands our vocabulary. Often we can understand a word we haven’t seen before from the context it is used in.
Word of the Day.
Get the App! You can have a new word sent to you every day. There are a lot of sites to choose from. If you can’t decide, pick more than one.
Family game night can include a monthly Scrabble game. Who has the strongest vocabulary in your family? Living alone? Facebook has a version as well. You can play with friends or challenge strangers.
Start with a book of easy puzzles and climb your way to master! Crossword puzzles are fun and can be completed with a friend.
Simply talking with other people is a way to learn new words. Of course, if you come across a vocabulary genius you may want to have a dictionary app on your phone or a small paperback one in your pocket.
You can’t lose with any of these ideas. Before long, you’ll be stringing new words together and impressing yourself and those around you with your wide range of knowledge!
