Chapter 2 : How to build a better vocabulary?
Words have always been important to get success academically, economically or socially. One word can consummate the deal or break it. Nicely used word would run like a bullet and pierce deep into the target. It is, therefore, vitally important to build a better vocabulary.
We have already discussed in chapter 1 that people only cram the words and not learn them practically. They miss one of the core things to build a better vocabulary. We have also discussed that the individual word is having less importance as compared to the word applied in a sentence. So, the basic and vital thing is we have to see the words practically applied somewhere by educated people of English language. For that you have to read and listen to English speakers.
You need to develop the habit of seeing the words practically applied. And they can only be seen in reading and listening. You have to spend time for quality reading as well as listening. You should build the habit of spending time, at least an hour, for reading advanced magazines such as ‘national geographic, readers digest, India today or any standard newspaper like ‘times of India’ or ‘new York times’ or some books by prominent authors. You should also listen to English movies, news channels, and programs.
Reading and listening of this kind would give you numerous benefits. In the first place, you would be able to use the words which you have seen in the reading. Secondly, and more importantly, you can use these words in correct manner. When you start doing this you would see in a very short time that plenty of the words are repeating. These words which are frequently repeated are your core words.
