What's the best way to learn English vocabulary?
How can I learn more words?
The truth is, that to successfully learn new vocabulary, you need to create good study habits, keep it interesting and make sure that you are having fun!
Building your English vocabulary is something that you should be doing, every day... So, you need to find fun and interesting ways to do it!
In this video, I’m going to talk about a number of different tools and techniques that you can use to improve your vocabulary - you might not like all of them, but you will definitely enjoy some of them! And hopefully, you can make them part of your daily or weekly routine.
AND if you’ve got your own suggestions about ways to learn vocabulary, make sure you add them in the comments!! Share the love!

1. Get better at studying new words!
2. When you do learn new words, don’t learn words on their own!
3. Learn new vocabulary through stories.
Stories are FULL of new words, phrases and interesting expressions that show you how words come together in an interesting, fun and engaging way! You’re not only learning what words to use but how to use them!
For pre-intermediate/intermediate learners, I recommend:
- Diary of a Wimpy Kid by Jeff Kinney
- Flat Stanley by Jeff Brown
- Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
- Charlotte’s Web by E.B.White
For upper-intermediate/advanced learners:
- James and The Giant Peach by Roald Dahl
- The Lison, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis
- To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee
- Animal Farm by George Orwell
4. Listen while you read.
You can find the AUDIO books for almost any book you can imagine. Which is great, because HEARING how English words are pronounced is so important
I use Audible to download my audio books and listen to them while I’m jogging, travelling or even drifting off to sleep!
