Read­ing to in­crease your vo­cab­u­lary

Sun.Star Pampanga - - PERSPECTIVE! -

JOVEN Q. FLORES

Many of our pupils are not fa­mil­iar with some words and even their mean­ing. They are al­ways ask­ing their teacher to clar­ify those words wherein teach­ing it is very im­por­tant in one les­son to un­lock those dif­fi­cul­ties for the bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of our pupils.

One strat­egy to im­prove your vo­cab­u­lary is read­ing. Read­ing widely is one of the most ef­fec­tive ways to in­crease your vo­cab­u­lary. Some au­thors write to in­form and catch the in­ter­ests of the read­ers. They choose the best words to arouse your in­ter­est.

Keep al­ways a handy dic­tio­nary when you read some ar­ti­cles, nov­els, books and the like so that when you see an un­fa­mil­iar word, try to guess what it means from the way it is used. In this time you will learn a new word at same time their vo­cab­u­lary.

Read­ing is a very im­por­tant part of learn­ing for ev­ery in­di­vid­ual. This will help ev­ery one of us to im­prove our vo­cab­u­lary.
