ADJECTIVES DESCRIBING PERSONALITY Q-Z

It is a long story for all of us, learning words. However, it is not arguable how vocabulary affects our other language skills; reading, writing, grammar, speaking. Do you remember the first word that you learned when you started to learn English? Probably, the word maybe hello, hi, how are you, okay, yes, no, fine, etc. Every new learner firstly starts with vocabulary to learn a new language. As the linguist, Wilkins said, “Without grammar little can be conveyed, without vocabulary nothing can be conveyed.” Vocabulary is the basis of learning a language. When you need to express yourself during a meeting, interview, letter; you will start to look for the right words. As you can see or have those difficult moments in which you feel helpless, desperate while searching every bottom of your brain, you will understand how important learning vocabulary is to have a real conversation. You can learn grammar rules quickly because the language has limited rules. However, it requires time and practice to gain new words. You should read stories, articles, news, listen to songs, and underline every word that you don`t know. Later, you should look up the dictionaries to learn the meaning and you should be able to make at least one example sentence to get a full understanding of using new words. It may be tiring sometimes or boring to underline continuously and write words, but it will expand your capacity to speak fluently. I guess you prefer to learn new words instead you find yourself desperate during conversations.
