Dear Shally,
Do you remember your enthusiasm in learning english ? You set a goal and tried to achieve it ! You explored different ways to make your english better. Of course, the hardest was to guess the meaning of the word, when you  had not that in your old paper vocabulary ( also the same with abbreviations ). And as a result, you made lots of mistakes because of it. And now i want to share with a wide range of  new online vocabularies and tools. I will paste a small list in this letter, that is my favorite. In 21 century you can  look a word up in the online dictionary. First and foremost, you will find there any definition of any word ! You only need to make a decision what definition is the most appropriate for a context. As for revision, you can find also variety of funny games and you will make a progress while doing exercise there. So, do your best and become an excellent english speaker )

Orginising and learning vocabulary : my tips

Nowadays more people have an access to education, technology is more developed, and the process of learning is easier because of countless sources of information. In 21st century you can find any word you need and of course it`s definition for better understanding. Personally when i read new article or text or even book, first of all i need to skim it, to understand what the text is about. Then i find unknown words and try to explain its meaning in context. Mostly it helps, if the text does not include plenty of unknown words. Then i put them down in my vocabulary, always with distinct definition, in this way you will remember how to explain this word in english. If i don`t know how to pronounce it, i also write a transcription. If i have leisure time, i try to paint some little pictures or just icons near the each word to assosiate it. What about learning and revising, i read my vocabulary every day, and also i have one special method ( maybe it will appeal you too). I write unknown words on notestickers and stick it everywhere. It can be table, wall, mirror, fridge, and just furniture. I have good visual memory so it really appeals to me. So read a lot, educate yourself, get some inspiration from others and enrich your vocabulary !❤ Thank you for reading, have a nice day ❤
