What is the best technique for increasing your vocabulary? : TURBO NET GAMES

If you learn best by doing it try an online program that increases your vocabulary.
If you learn best by seeing get a test prep book from the library and study the vocabulary section by writing the words and the meanings.
If you learn best by hearing (that’s my favorite) then record yourself reading the word and the meaning and asample sentence from the test prep book and play it several times a day. As you play it say it with your tape.
