Increasing Vocabulary #110

The majority of vocabulary words are learned from context. The more words that are exposed to you the better your vocabulary will become. While reading, pay close attention to words you don’t know. First, try to understand their meanings from context. Secondly, look the words up in a dictionary. Finally, read and listen to challenging material, in order, to be exposed to many new words.

It´s in there #329
