Becky: What are the best ways to remember vocabulary so you can speak and understand more?
Becky: Welcome to an Innovative Language Learning Sunday News! I'm Becky and I'll be hosting today's Sunday news with my co-host, the founder of Innovative Language... Peter Galante!
Peter: Hi everyone! Peter here.
Becky: In this Sunday News, we’re talking about the top 4 tried and tested tricks for remembering vocabulary.
Peter: Listeners, 90% of language learners are not using these 4 tricks to remember words.
Becky: So Peter, what are these tricks?
Peter: We’ll reveal them in a second, but first, we have a new feature we’d like to mention.
Becky: It’s called Season Vocabulary, and it’s a list...
Peter: ...of all the words taught in a lesson season, for example, in Absolute Beginner Season 1 or Season 2.
Becky: With this list, you can instantly review the words in any season.
Peter: You get the meaning, the sample sentences, you hear the proper pronunciations...
Becky: ...and you can even record yourself to compare with the proper pronunciation..
Peter: On top of that, you can save the words to your personal word list in Word Bank
Becky: Or... just study them with our smart flashcards, until you know them all.
Peter: Listeners, you can find the Season Vocabulary Lists by clicking on “Browse Lessons”...
Becky: ...and there you’ll see “Season Vocabulary” for the seasons available.
Peter: So now, let’s talk about the top 4 tricks for remembering vocabulary...
Becky: Listeners, 90% of language learners are skipping these tips. But they’re tried...
Peter: ...And they’re tested – I’ve been using them in my own Italian studies.
Becky: The last tip even includes our newest feature!
Peter: Okay, what are the top 4 tricks for remembering words?
Becky: One: Put them to use, Two: Study with Flashcards, Three: Hear them in actual conversations, and Four: Review with our newest feature.
Peter: Now, don’t worry, we’re going to explain these one by one.
Becky: So, number one: Use the words.
Peter: After you learn a new word, using it right away is crucial to remembering it.
Becky: If you’re on the site and listening to a lesson... here’s what you do:
Peter: Leave a comment! Make up a sample sentence and post it in the comment section.
Becky: It’s the actual practice, not the learning of a word for the first time, that’ll get you to remember it.
Peter: Number two: Study with our FlashCards...
Becky: And we’re not talking about the kind you have to carry around and that end up scattered everywhere.
Peter: We’re talking about smart online flashcards that you can find in our Premium Study Tools...
Becky: Think of these as a teacher inside your computer, who will sort the words for you,...
Peter: ...quiz you on the ones you’re struggling with, and skip the words you know.
Becky: So because you get them so often, you have no choice to but to remember them.
Peter: Number three: Hear the words in real conversation.
Becky: In fact, you can do this with our lessons - just listen to the dialogue.
Peter: That way, you hear how they’re used...
Becky: ...and you can easily identify them in future conversations.
Peter: And number four: Review with our brand new feature: Season Vocabulary.
Becky: “Review” is the key word here.
Peter: Sometimes, all you need is a list of all the words in one spot to boost your memory..
Becky: And that’s exactly what Season Vocabulary is for.
Peter: That’s right. You get the vocab lists for every series for easy review.
