Using a word of the day is a great technique to teach yourself new vocabulary words.

The body of words that we have at our disposal to communicate with is what we call our vocabulary. As we go through school and life, for that matter, our vocabulary grows year to year and day to day. Vocabulary has a direct impact our ability to read and comprehend what we read. As a result, weak readers will have small vocabulary banks. Reading is not the only way to improve your vocabulary speech and oral language has been shown to help our vocabularies skyrocket. One thing is certain repetition is the key to learn new words. The more we are exposed to new words, the quicker we will learn them.

There are several different methods we can use to improve our vocabulary. The first, as we said previously, is to read as much as you can. The more reps, they better you will do. Having a dictionary or thesaurus handy when reading can really help you get all the words you read. Understanding root words can really help you learn new words because they will build off the old word. There are a few word of the day mobile apps that can help you immensely to build a broader vocabulary library of your own.
