A glossary

A glossary might be an interesting way of organizing vocabulary into topics. The very process of creating a glossary helps us sort out words, practice spelling, and put words in context. However, a glossary will only help us if we actually use them on an everyday basis. Revisiting a glossary is the best way to keep updated with English vocabulary.

When creating a glossary keep in mind the layout and you might consider listing words in alphabetical order so that it's easier to find words. Don't forget to write an example in order to make it more palpable to readers (yourself included as you might forget the meaning of the words in your own glossary!---DOon'r rely on your memory!). Furthermore, besides context the examples show how words collocate (that is, combine with other words).

Don't miss the opportunity to recycle and learn new vocabulary!

  1. Vocabulary, much more than grammar, is the key to your child understanding what she hears and reads in school; and to communicating successfully with other people. For this reason it is very important for her to quickly build up a large store of words. https://vocabmonk.com helps your child to build his vocabulary with a thematic approach.
