** Today's Tip **

One of the most common questions from our Learn English community is 'How can I remember new words?' Here are some of our top tips to help you!

1. Look it up
If you come across a word you don't know, try to find out what it means.
Look up the meaning in a dictionary or ask someone for help to understand it.

2. Use it
It's easy to remember a new word for a few minutes – but how can you remember it after a day, or a week?
The trick is to use it. Use it in a sentence. Try to make a creative, memorable sentence, something you can picture and that will stay in your mind.

3. Try out phrases and different forms
Sometimes it can be easier to learn a phrase than learn each word individually.
So if you're learning the word 'focus' you could write down the meanings of 'focus on' and 'out of focus'. What does it mean to 'focus your mind on something' or 'focus your attention on something'. What does it mean if you 'lose your focus'?

4. Talk about it
We often remember things better when we learn 'actively'. That means instead of just listening, or just reading, you should be active in trying to speak, read, write and listen.
Now that you know what the word means and you've tried writing it down in different ways, tell a friend about the new word. Sometimes teaching someone else can help you remember, too.

5. Use games and technology
Many people find playing games is a good way to help build their understanding. You could write words on flashcards and test yourself or a friend to make a sentence with each word.

6. Don’t give up
Don't try to do too much too quickly. It's very hard to remember a long list of words. Maybe it's better to learn one word a day, or a list of eight words a week. It all depends how much time you have to practise.

7. Sleep!
Did you know that if you sleep within a few hours of learning something new you'll be better at remembering what you've learned?
So that's a great reason to practise new words before bed time. Let your brain do the work while you sleep!
But don't forget to review your new words and phrases in the morning too.
