Tips for quick Vocabulary Memorization

There are many ways to expand your vocabulary for any exam. But all you have to do is figure out which method suits your learning. Here are 3 magical ways:

  1. Record all the vocabulary and listen to it again and again. This will not allow you to improve your pronunciation (whether it is wrong or right), but will also help you to memore it without repeating it like a parrot.
  2. Try memorizing by way of association. Recall your friend who is a miser (Kanjoos in Hindi or Urdu). Now you can apply his name to the word parsimonious, which means very ‘unwilling to spend money or use his or her resources.’ Now add two synonyms to his name like ‘close-fisted, penny-pinching, cheese-paring.’’
  3. Write the words again and again.
