It pays to improve your Word Power!

When you learn a new language, you need to know so many new WORDS –  here are some tips to help you remember them :

  • Keep an organised vocabulary notebook.
  • Look at the words again after 24 hours, after one week and after one month.
  • Read, read, read. …
  • Use the new words. …
  • Do word puzzles and games like crosswords, anagrams and wordsearches.
  • Make word cards and take them with you.

See if you can work out these simple anagrams? (An anagram means changing the way letters are arranged to make a new word. EG:  RAT – TAR)

CAT  –

EAT  –

STATE –

NIGHT –

SILENT –

 

Can you think of other words? Write your own list and test your friends (or your homestay when you visit). :)
