How to Improve Your Vocabulary with Five Words a Day

In this short article, I will share with you the simplest mathematical formula which you can use to improve your vocabulary.

Vocabulary is the total number of words which you know and can use without consulting a dictionary. There are two types of vocabularies—active and passive. Active vocabulary is the words you know and can use while passive vocabulary is the words you understand but cannot use. Vocabulary is easy! How many days in a year are there?—365, normally (on Earth).

If you learn only 5 new words a day, you will learn 5 x 365 = 1,825 new words in a year. ONE THOUSAND, EIGHT HUNDRED AND TWENTY-FIVE WORDS. That is a lot of new words. And we are not counting all the other words you will learn in other ways—reading, conversation etc. Buy a notebook and write in 5 new words EACH day, EVERY day. Learn them! You will soon have an excellent vocabulary.
