How to learn new vocab?

Depending on the Type of Vocab
There are thousands of methods and there are also different types of words to learn. So, I don't think that there is only one single method good for all types of new words.
Today, I want to show you how to use Quizlet - a free platform on which you can practice your own word lists. Not as other learning apps where you have pre-selected words that you might never use in life. Here you have full control of what you want to learn and get to choose from 6 different learning modes.
When to use Quizlet?
The platform is good when you want to drill and practice vocab on your own.
It is useful when you are trying to remember:
unlogical sets of words, e.g.
terms that associate with unambigous pictures, e.g.
grammar forms, e.g. irregular verbs
WEB or APP?
For all functions, I recommend to register free on the website and choose carefully the lists of vocab you want to learn. Here you can see which lists are created by teachers (less probable to contain mistakes compared to other learners' lists). You can edit the lists and use all learning modes and games.
The app has only restricted numbers of exercises and is good to use offline on the go when you are repeating old vocab or if you are just happy to learn with flashcards.
