Study Vocabulary

English learners are taught to put words into the proper context as much as possible. You can learn to do this by reading frequently. The more words you are exposed to, the better your vocabulary will be. As you read, pay close attention to words you do not know and underline or highlight them with a marker.   You should try to figure out their meanings from the supporting context. After this, look the words up in the dictionary. Sahasriya students discusses these with its trainers everyday (Advantage #1). Read and listen to challenging materials like the English language news so that you will be exposed to many new words. Once you have learned the new word, practice using it.
