Our first tip today, tomorrow and always is to speak. Yes, just speak. And as much as possible. If you can afford to speak English every day, go ahead and definitely do that. You’ll find yourself in real world situations trying to find words for that piece of paper that you want to buy in order to travel to another city and come back home to your city. A return ticket, that’s the word you’re thinking of. If you learn new words in such practical ways, their meaning will be stuck in your head a long time, if not forever.

One more practical, yet traditional way to learn new words every day is to create your own pocket dictionary. You wouldn’t just be throwing words around, you would only focus on objects that you encounter during the day and just write them down. A week after that, when you find yourself in the same situation, you will probably have learned and remembered all new words. If not, you’ll have your dictionary nearby to help you out.
You must be thinking: ‘’this sounds too perfect’’. But it is true. TV shows and movies are one of the best resources to get to know other cultures, words, slangs, people etc.
Your binge watch skills will come in handy if you want to learn new English words with TV shows, Pick your favourite shows (our suggestions: Friends, Gossip Girl, and Grey’s Anatomy). Select English as the audio language. Put English subtitles. And enjoy. Other methods of learning through TV series and movies involve subtitles and binge watching, go check them out.
Songs are great because they are catchy. Especially pop songs like Britney Spears, Ariana Grande, and Taylor Swift. Their songs are full of very useful expressions and words that you can learn by listening to their songs couple of times. One of the best exercises to learn new English words through songs is Lyrics Gaps Exercise. You can find it on the following websites.
Podcasts are an amazing time killer when you are stuck in public transportation. But most importantly, they are on our list of best resources for learning new English words. Depending on your level of English knowledge, you can choose either language learning podcasts or regular podcasts. If you are already listening to podcasts on regular basis, don’t be lazy and pause it when you run into an unfamiliar word. Explore it a bit, check out different meanings. Go backwards in your podcast episode and note down how the word is being used by the speaker. If you learn from context, you’ll have more chance of remembering it, but also using it on your own in the future. Bonus tip: write the words down in your pocket dictionary.
You already probably have your regular routine, social media that you explore while you drink your first coffee, TV show that you watch during breakfast or podcasts that you listen to in the bus. There’s no harm in updating this routine a bit by changing the language of your Instagram account, watching English TV shows and listening to English podcasts. After a certain period of time, this will become your new routine and you’ll get more used to English language as a part of your day life.
Practice your English with native speakers, watch TV shows and movies, create a personal dictionary, listen to the music and podcasts.
