How to Learn English Vocabulary
There are many reasons why learning a language is difficult. However, it doesn't have to be difficult. We just need to know what language is.
Language is simply words. A group of words are sentences. When you can create sentences to say what you want, then you can speak the language.
If that is the case, then what are the problems? Why is it hard to learn English?
First, there are hundreds of thousands of words. I can't learn them all!!!
Second, even if I know the meaning of the word, I don't know how to use it!
And third, after learning some words, I forget them. How do I remember them?!?!
We thought about all of these problems when we built this English vocabulary app. We used a lot of research created by smart people and found a solution for all these problems in an easy step by step way.
Well known researchers such as Schonell, Hirsh, Nation, and many others all agree that knowing 2,000 words will cover over 90% of words used in both writing and speaking.
Basically, these 2,000 words will give you a solid foundation so you can learn English more easily. It is more important to know 2,000 words in depth than to know 10,000 words at a low level. If you know 10,000 words but cannot use them in a sentence, then what is the purpose of knowing that word? But if you study and learn these 2000 words, you will have the ability to speak and write solid English.
