  7. 7. KEEP A VOCABULARY NOTEBOOK IN A SEPARATE NOTEBOOK FROM YOUR CLASS NOTES • Take an active approach to learning new vocabulary. • If you find 5 words a day, 6 days a week, you will learn about 140 new words a month; 10 words a day would bring you over than 280 new words a month. • Hint – approach new words by subject: things connected to your hobies, to your interests etc. • Do it this way: • Think of a word you know in your language. • Look it up in your dictionary. • When you find the English word, write it down on the left side of your vocabulary note book. • In the midle of the page, write down if the word is a noun (n), verb (v), adjective (adj), etc. so that you will know how to use the word. • Look the word up in an English-English dictionary. • Write the English definition on the right side of the the page (or on the next page). • Copy a sentence from the dictionary. This will help you learn how to use the word correctly. • Practice reading this sentence untll it becomes natural for you.

  9. 9. THINK POSITIVELY • People who say “I can’t speak English well” are corrected. • People who say “Every day in every way, my English is getting better and better” are also correct. • What you think is what you get. • Practice saying the second sentence every day, and you will see greater improvement in your English and in your confidence. • Remember: the more fun you have with English,the easier it will be to learn ENJOY
