Here are some tips to help you remember vocabulary:
 
  • Keep an organised vocabulary notebook.
  • Look at the words again after 24 hours, after one week and after one month.
  • Read, read, read. The more times you ‘see’ a word the more easily you will remember it.
  • Use the new words. You need to use a new word about ten times before you remember it!
  • Do word puzzles and games like crosswords, anagrams and wordsearches.
  • Make word cards and take them with you. Read them on the bus or when you are waiting for your friends.
  • Learn words with a friend. It can be more fun and easier to learn with someone else.
  • Learn how to use a dictionary. What information is next to a word in the dictionary? Do you know the different types of dictionary?
  • Learn a few words but not too many. About eight new words a day is a good number.
  • Use an app like My WordBook 2 to help you learn new words.

Hi tsunami2011. That is indeed a long word! What does it mean? It sounds like a medical word.
