Organising vocabulary

  1. 1. HOW TO ORGANISE YOUR VOCABULARY WHEN LEARNING ENGLISH 1. Keeping a notebook to write down new words is a good idea. However, you should revise the words you've written every now and then. 2. Classify the vocabulary into groups according to type of word, meaning, level of difficulty, etc. ANIMAL SOUND CHILDREN dog bark puppy car mew / purr kitten bird tweet / chirp chick cow moo calf pig oink / grunt piglet sheep bleat lamb 3. Diagrams can be a useful tool if visually organising words helps you. cap hat glasses T-shirt blouse shirt cardigan jacket belt vest slippers sandals boots trousers shorts jeans rainboots miniskirt 4. Writing down expressions, not just words, as you encounter them, will help you associate them in the future. Some words tend to collocate. ◦ to and fro ◦ see you later ◦ do one's homework ◦ to make a move ◦ be in the red ◦ and so on CLOTHES TOP COMPLEMENTS BOTTOMS SHOES
