∆ Read read and read ∆

When we read a novel, for instance, we did not pay heed to the words even if we don’t know their meaning, we just get down into the story. But if we spend some time in observing those unfamiliar words and check out their meaning, it's more interesting. Have a closer look at those unfamiliar words for getting exact meaning.
Often people with low vocabularies don’t enjoy reading at all. It’s more of a chore for them rather them pleasure because they don’t understand many of the words. If you also feel like that, then try to read easy stuff. I also find difficulty while reading an English novel. But then I try to read something that is same as my level. There is no point in reading something that you completely can’t understand. The idea is to find things you enjoy to read. Read that stuff as much as possible and always keep in mind the idea that you have to learn new words. It will surely help you in learning and build your vocabulary.
∆ Use dictionary daily∆

Another way of building vocabulary is to keep a small dictionary always with you. Keep it where you usually do your reading at home. Circles the words you look up. When you uncover a new word, look it up in the dictionary to get both its meaning and pronunciation. Also, see the synonymy of these words to get a more detailed idea of the word.
Dictionary will give you a number of meanings of the same word; you have to read all these words. This will add to the pleasure of learning the word as well as help you remember it.
∆ Use a journal ∆
Learning new words each day is easy but with time we forget them. It’s a problem I often face and I try to remember those words I have learnt days before. This problem can be eradicated by using a Journal. Keep a running list of new words you discover. So, that we can refer back to the words whenever we need them in our writings.

Besides that making, a journal will also motivate you whenever you have a look at that journal. The act of writing things down will help us to remember things. You can also draw some diagram in front of the word to help you concentrate on its meaning. In this way, we will see a remarkable improvement in our vocabulary.
∆ Actively use what you learn ∆

Learning verbally is not that effective without practical. Using the new words you learn in your everyday life in speaking and writing is more advantageous. If you don’t use it, you lose it. If you learn a new word per day but never take the time to use them in your life, you will forget their meanings.
We should use these words even when chatting with our friends, relatives and colleagues. This practice will never let you forget those words. Our vocabulary will get better day by day with these small efforts.
∆ Make observations ∆

Keep an eye out for the words you are studying when reading or listening to English in movies, songs, books etc. Once you have a specific amount of words in your vocabulary, try to look at the world around you to look at the examples of their usage. Knowing when and how vocabulary is used is more important than just knowing its meaning.
Don’t worry no one is perfect in using right words at the right place. But with time and practice, we can improve our vocabulary. Observation is hence is much important in all aspects of life.
∆ Use vocabulary building games and apps ∆
