Remember by practicing many times
Maybe this is not a learning style that you all enjoy, but it can be said that this is one of the most effective and suitable ways to learn vocabulary for the majority. You need to memorize words, use words with appropriate contexts in both speaking and writing, and review the vocabulary learned many times. Every day you should learn 5 new words, then write them down on notebooks or sticky notes and stick them in places you often go to in the house (such as classrooms, refrigerators, room doors…) to frequent exposure to the vocabulary as much as possible, so that the brain automatically memorizes words passively but still effectively. Depending on the ability of each of you to memorize, you can gradually increase the amount of vocabulary to learn for each day.
