Recording Vocabulary

I want to show you a way of recording vocabulary that you have problems remembering. Recording new words in such a way of course has pros and cons, which I will discuss below, however, it can prove very helpful to some of you.


What do you need?
Basically, not much. You need to prepare a template in MS Word, print it out and fill it in every time you find a word which is very difficult to remember. Or - make such a table in your notebook.

Who is it for?
It's good for almost all learners, however, the visual ones will appreciate it most. It's a good way of remembering some words which we always tend to forget.

What are the pros?
  • To fill in the information in the table we need to devote some time to a particular word, which helps us remember it. 
  • The table includes a lot of information, so we learn more than one word.
  • It's very neat and clear!

What are the cons?
Time, time, time... Preparing such notes is time-consuming... However, it's still worth it!
