5 REASONS

  1. Lack of context:
    1. Memorizing words without understanding their meaning and usage in context makes it difficult to effectively use them in real-life situations.
    2. INSTEAD, DO THIS
      1. Read a passage from a book, article, or blog post. After reading the passage, go back and review the words you did not know. This will help you learn the words in context and remember them later.
  2. Limited retention:
    1. Memorized words are often forgotten quickly if not applied and reinforced regularly.
    2. INSTEAD, DO THIS
      1. Learn 2 – 3 related vocabulary words. Then try to use the words to describe some aspect of your daily life. This will help you remember what you learned.
  3. Inefficient learning method:
    1. This approach focuses on rote memorization rather than actively engaging with the language, which can hinder overall language acquisition.
    2. INSTEAD, DO THIS
      1. Listen to real English conversations and try to write down new words and expressions. Then, listen to the conversations again and see if you can understand the meaning of the words in context. This will help you actively engage with the English language.
  4. Lack of enjoyment:
    1. Simply memorizing long lists of words is often tedious and not enjoyable.
    2. INSTEAD, DO THIS
      1. Pick 3 – 5 new English words. After learning the meaning of each word, try to actively use them throughout the day in various conversations. This will help you start actively using English because you will be constantly looking for creative ways to use the words.
  5. Overemphasis on quantity over quality:
    1. Instead of focusing on memorizing long lists of words, it is more beneficial to focus on quality vocabulary that has practical applications.
    2. INSTEAD, DO THIS
      1. Write 2 – 3 vocabulary words that you already know. Then, find one synonym for each word. After you have the synonyms, try to use them to describe one aspect of your daily life. This will help you expand your vocabulary in a more natural way.
