How to make the most out of Lexicon:
- Visit regularly. That way you'll add words to your repertoire daily.
- Make flash cards. Make pocket-sized flash cards. Flash cards are incredibly effective in enhancing one's vocabulary.
Whenever you come across time voids(like walking to your bus-stop, or in an elevator etc), take your cards out and glance over them. That way,
you'll retain whatever you have learnt.
- Read the sentences aloud(whenever possible) if your surroundings allow you to: This will help you understand as well as retain the sentence formation of English language. Remember that watching helps with learning, and
listening helps with retention.
- Curiosity breeds knowledge: Do NOT be reluctant to google words similar to the ones listed. And more importantly,
keep the new words in a ledger/on flash cards. New words tend to be mischievous, they try to elope your mind if you don't revisit them.
