How To Learn And Use 1000 English Vocabulary Words



as an English Learner you sometimes experience a problem when you're reading something or even when you're having a conversation with people and even sometimes when you're listening to a podcast or other audio file this problem is vocabulary but there is a formula this formula will help you to learn 1000 inless vocabulary words and that's what I will teach you today welcome to speak English with Tiffany I'm teacher Tiffany let's jump right in okay so here's the problem the problem is you want to improve your English vocabulary but it just seems too hard now let's look at this a little closer so the first thing is you memorize lots of words but what happens is you can't remember or use them many of my students have told me that they memorize vocabulary words but then when they get in conversations they're not able to use them and that's what happens or you start off strong but what happens is you get tired and often give up okay and often give up completely now to be honest with you I also experienced the same thing when I was studying Korean I would study hundreds of vocabulary words but then after two or three weeks I would get tired and just stop so again you start off strong but you get tired and often give up completely this is the problem now there is a solution the solution is three words lead to 1000 words now don't worry I'm going to explain this very clearly and it will really help you to learn 1000 words all right now the first aspect of this solution before I explain it in detail is the memorization and repetition memorization and repetition is so important because it is a set pattern that will help your brain okay that will help your brain now remember in one of my previous video lessons I explained how your brain works okay there are certain triggers that help your brain remember certain things okay so a set pattern will also help your brain when you're trying to remember or memorize English vocabulary words and the next thing is learn and use many times you will learn vocabulary words but you're not able to use them this solution this formula I'm gonna teach you will help you do both okay so again this will help you use them in daily life when you meet someone that is a native English speaker or even another English Learner you can use the words that you're learning okay alright so the breakdown let's look at the breakdown of this solution or this formula okay so again one thousand words by doing three words each day but there's five parts the Select memorize visualize apply and review okay so let's look at the breakdown in a little bit more detail the first section is select so you select the three words that you will use for that day now remember in the beginning I said this is a formula and it's actually a part of a 16 day cycle now the first part of the cycle is the Select column the first column so on the first day day one you will learn only three words and each day after you're only learning three new words now let me explain exactly how this selection happens okay so once again you select the words that you will use for that day this is how it's going to happen so let's start right here on top there are many different ways that you can select words let's say for example that you are watching something on TV so you can select words from TV shows or movies that you watch okay you may have a favorite American television show that you watch and you may hear a vocabulary word that you don't know so you can choose it from the television show or you may even have a special book or magazine or newspaper that you enjoy reading an English newspaper or magazine so you can pick a vocabulary word from books magazines or the newspaper okay or the newspapers you read okay newspapers that you read alright and the other method you can use actually is something that you may already have inside so this is your brain so there are some words that you already know you can actually look for or find synonyms okay find synonyms for words you all ready know for example let's say I already know the word big that's a word that you already no but a synonym for the word big is e normos so I already know this word but enormous is a synonym for that word okay so these are three different ways you can actually select vocabulary words okay let's keep going so the next part of the breakdown is to memorize you're going to memorize the definitions of the words from the previous day so again let's look at our 16 day cycle now we've moved to the second column the memorized column now on the far left you see the day column then next to select and the next to memorize so on day one you only memorized or selected three words now on day two you still need to select three new words but now is when you're going to memorize the three words you looked up the first day it's very important you're memorizing on the second day okay let's go in more detail okay so again memorize the definitions of the words from the previous day okay so let's look at it a little closer so here's what's gonna happen so right here let's give him some glasses okay let's give this student some glasses so we have this student this english learner right here so what's gonna happen the first thing is to read over the words and meanings you're going to think about them okay remember I chose enormous so I'm gonna look over the word enormous and realize oddest means big this means big the next thing you're going to do is you're going to make something okay I'll explain exactly what these are okay you can write really tiny all right so what you're going to do let's put Hardy let's put it like this you're going to make flash cards for each word remember it's not going to take you a long time because it's only four three words okay make flash cards and then what you're going to do let's put a little clock right here for us we got a little clock right here a little bell on top okay what you're going to do is time yourself as you memorize a little better as you memorize each word you want to get to the point to where you can memorize and know three words in 30 seconds okay this is your goal okay this is your goal okay all right so let's keep going to the next phase alright so the next phase is to visualize now for the visualizing step you're going to select various images that go along with each of the vocabulary words use them to memorize the words more okay so let's go back and look at the 16-day cycle again so now we're on the next column the visualize column okay alright so again on day one we selected three words day two we also selected three words but then we also added the memorizing of the first three words and we're also going to be visualizing on that day the first three words now again I'm going to explain it very clearly so let's jump in to explain it very clearly again selecting various images that go along with each of the vocabulary words use them to memorize the words more so here we go all right so the first thing you need to do let's do a little head right here okay student with their eyes closed okay let's give his brain right here singing and he's thinking his mind alright so what's gonna happen is you first need to think about each word and see what picture pops into your head this is important because everyone is different if I say good food the first thing that pops in my mind may be different from what pops in your mind so it's important to see what pops into your mind now the next thing you're going to do is you're going to get on the computer this you're gonna get on the computer alright and what you're going to do is you're going to go online and find an image that matches it okay find an image that matches what you saw in your mind okay now again remember it's only for three words so it's not going to take you a long time okay but go online and find an image that matches each word so you're looking for three images okay three images now after you find the images what you're going to do is you're going to make another flashcard but this time instead of the word being on the top the word will be on the bottom and on top you will place the image okay so again you're going to finally make image flashcards and practice with them remember these steps are so important because you need to practice and learn vocabulary in different ways not just sitting and looking at a book and memorizing your brain needs to see things that are visual and connected to different situations in order for you to learn and use the vocabulary words so let's keep going alright so the next step is to apply now that you know the meanings use each of the vocabulary words in a sentence that you create okay so again a 16 day cycle now we're on the next column the apply column so again day one we just selected three new words day two we selected three new words and we also memorized and visualize – the first three words and now as we move down today number three we're still selecting three words we're memorizing what we learned or what we selected the previous day and we're visualizing and now we're applying the first three words now this applying I will explain okay let's go and I will explain it in more detail so again now that you know the meanings use each of the vocabulary words in a sentence that you create so here's what's gonna happen so let's have a student or right here okay so we have this student right here right now this student is looking at something right now so let's do this like this okay let's have this here let's give her some fingers so she's holding the book okay so this student is looking at something right now what you're going to do is you're going to read you the meaning and this is the key right here think about your life this is key review the meaning and think about your life so here we go let me show you an example okay so let's look at an example so that you can understand exactly what this step means so let's say for example I have this right here okay this is my dictionary okay and the word I selected was e nor mus okay enormous which means very big okay so again it means very big that's the definition I found in the dictionary correct now what's going to happen is I'm going to look at the dictionary sentence example okay I'm going to look for the dictionary sentence example and let's say the dictionary says the building is e normos okay the building is enormous that's the pattern that the dictionary uses the building is enormous now what I'm going to do is think about my life and I'm gonna write my own sentence so you're going to write your sentence so your sentence which is my sentence right now is gonna be aa maybe my school so I can say my University is e normos so what happened I changed this part right here so instead of the building I put my university but everything else is the same this is what you're going to do for the apply step in this formula okay let's keep going now the last thing for the breakdown is the review step the final step in the breakdown method is to review all of the previous steps and see which step you need to practice more so remember it's a 16 day cycle all right now this 16 day cycle has many different columns but on the 16th day you're going to review all of the 42 words you learned on the previous 15 days now don't worry I'm going to explain exactly how to do this so let's look at it in more detail once again the final step in the breakdown method is to review all of the previous steps and see which step you need to practice more so let's jump in here we go so the first thing we need to do let's put our timer right here so we have our little clock right here this is our timer our bell okay so you're gonna find a timer and what you're gonna do is you're going to set a five-minute timer this is very important only five minutes set a five minute timer for the review time okay it's very important remember you've been practicing these words for fifteen days so you should be able to bring them to mind very quickly all right so what you're gonna do next is remember there was a 15-day period before the review day okay so let's just do it real quick like this okay let's just kind of do a small sketch so there's a 15-day period and during that period you had different flashcards so we had a word flashcard remember we had the word flashcard that we made and we also had image flashcards that we made okay so what's going to happen is you need to review both within the five-minute time period now it seems like a short period of time to review 42 words but remember your brain is amazing you've been using and reviewing these words for a 15 day period so that means you actually will know more than you realize but what's gonna happen is during this 5 minute period you need to go very quickly and there may be some words that you get wrong if there are words that you get wrong that just means you need to review them again so what's gonna happen is you're gonna have a separate pile this is the review again pile so what you're gonna do is if you get any wrong put them in the review again pile and what's important is what you're going to do is when you start the next cycle you're going to go over them every other day until you feel comfortable and you feel like you know them well okay this is the review step okay okay great job now I've created the actual formula and spreadsheet that you will need to do the and put this into action the 1000 volt a Buell arey words plan is a free

  1. really useful. I read books in English to improve my vocabulary but is hard to switch always between google translate and my book. and also really hard to review the words I searched. but I discovered the language booster application for android. really helpful

  2. Thank you so much Tiffany. This is exactly what I was trying to find for so long. Much appreciated.

  3. Hi this is Prem from India and I felt that your video can help me a lot but my problem is how to use words at right time and right place. Can you help me or send me a set of words which commonly use in American english. And guide me to use according to tenses n grammer.

  4. The method you "invented" can be useful, the problem is that it depends on where the person lives, Example: If the person learning is from Vietnam, chances are a lot of the words they pronounced are usually incorrect. The US and The UK pronunciation usually get mixed up. The English lesson you provided is just the US English, the person might watch UK Youtubers which will obviously mix everything up. If your vocabulary is great but your grammar is horrible… You're not gonna get far in English.

  5. Nobody have that much time to waste on it. If somebody really want to learn vocabulary, the very simple trick is that you don't need to waste your precious time on it; if the word repeatedly comes to you, that will automatically take place in your mind . Please remember that don't waste your time; what is for you, will be awarding to you.

  6. Your method of teaching is wrong
    That’s up to individual mind . Some are quick learners some not .

  7. Tiffani weakness of mind due to young age to learn
    Vocabularies ubiquitous
    English language is nothing
    Only 26 letters not enough to make sentences
    Borrowed from other languages

  8. I have a question, is she talking slowly for the people who cannot understand the English? Greetings from Mexico 🇲🇽

  9. One method i know and worked well to me is lyrics, tring to voice it on karaokê Works as well too.
