|Improve Your English by Practicing
English learners can improve their ability to use different words by practicing. One way to practice effectively is through repetition – doing something over and over again.
Repetition, however, does not mean repeating a new vocabulary word the same way every time. It means repeating the word while using it in different contexts or situations.
This idea comes from Sarah Lynn, who works as an educational consultant and teacher at Harvard University's Bridge Program.
She says that English learners often have trouble using new words in different situations. They are unable to put their knowledge and skills to use in new ways.
If you are like many students learning a foreign language, you have probably faced a situation like the one Sarah Lynn describes here:
"We learn a new word, and then, when the moment comes to actually use it, we can't retrieve it or we can't use it in a new situation and in a new expression."
The problem, she explains, is that the learner's language is not alive yet. He or she is not able to transfer what they have learned to a new situation.
In an earlier Education story, we discussed the importance of dendrites. Dendrites are connections in the brain. They grow thicker and stronger with practice.
Lynn suggests that better dendrite connections can improve retrieval, the ability to remember and use vocabulary words. One way to grow dendrite connections in the brain is to make connections to what you already know.
Another way to grow dendrite connections is to practice. "They say practice makes perfect" says Lynn, "but actually, practice makes permanent."
