repeat words several times
To make word repetition a useful tool for building vocabulary, it is helpful to over-practice.
All throughout the day, for several days, you should repeat words several times in order to keep the words in your memory. It's a good idea to keep your words in a notepad that you can carry wherever you go. During the day, there will be plenty of opportunities to take out your notepad and read the words to yourself. The more you repeat a word, the better it will stick in your mind.
While repeating the words, don’t just do it as though you're a robot. Study the word each time and analyze its meaning. If you want you can even study its related words and examples every time you repeat it.
Does repetition ensure that you remember the word for a long time?
It depends on the number of times you repeat a word, and the level of concentration you give whenever you recite the word to yourself. To make word repetition an useful tool for building vocabulary, it is helpful to over-practice. Even when you have memorized a word, that's no reason to stop repeating it. Keep it in your word list for a few more days so you can make sure that you will still remember the word after several weeks or several months.
