use your imagination
How to use you imagination to learn words faster...
By this time, you have already elaborated on the word, recited it repeatedly, listed to it, and made it relevant. Is there anything else you can do towards building a better vocabulary?
Of course there is. You may try creating images to correspond with the word you are learning. If you are learning a word, you can try looking it up in a traditional or online dictionary, and you may find an illustration of the word.
If there is no illustration provided, which is usually the case for words that stand for unseen concepts, then you can try using your imagination to create your own visual representation. The more creative you are in creating these mental pictures, the better you will be in building your vocabulary.
As a rule, it is easier to visualize concrete words, but you can try simple tricks for more abstract terms. A tip for doing this would be to attach a picture of a familiar object or person that you associate with that word. For example, if you want to remember "flippant" (lacking in respect or seriousness), make a mental picture of your boss's secretary whose careless attitude suggests she doesn’t take her work seriously.
Speak the word aloud
Another helpful strategy for building vocabulary is speaking the word aloud. It doesn’t matter if there's nobody to hear it, make sure you say it loud and clear. This will give you confidence in using the new word in conversation, which you should also try doing.
