  10. 10. Strategies for increasing your vocabulary<br />Strategies for increasing your vocabulary are many. What should be noted, however, is that we only remember a fraction of what we read (see Figure 1). The amount remembered increases to 30% of what you hear; 40% of what you see; and, 60% when you actually perform the task. As such, it is important that we combine all types of activities to obtain maximum learning. <br />
  11. 11. Knowing a word means knowing context. Words used alone do not provide the full meaning. Depending upon the surrounding words and text, words can take on different meanings<br />Our verbal vocabulary is often less sophisticated than our written vocabulary. This is because verbal communication relies heavily upon non-verbal cues and gestures. As such, it is important that we experience vocabulary in both environments (Allen, 2006). <br />
  12. 12. Vocabulary development can also occur through exploring similarities and differences amongst related words and keeping written documentation of the words learnt, their definitions, and the different ways the words can be used. Word associations (e.g. roots), words that signal a connection to other words and assist meaning (e.g. therefore), and words that have similar sounds but are spelt differently are all techniques that can be explored for improving vocabulary.<br />
  13. 13. Expanding your vocabulary is achievable. It can improve your communication skills and develop reading and writing ability. It does not matter at what stage of your career, your education, or your personal growth, vocabulary develop can benefit everyone. Using vocabulary software, such as that produced by Ultimate Vocabulary, is a very effective way of achieving these goals and benefiting from the results. <br />
