Want to speak and understand more of your target language? If so, of course, you’ll need to know more words and phrases than you do now.
In this video, we'll cover 5 ways to master new words and phrases fast.
Number one: Use our FREE Vocabulary Lists

You'll learn phrases that you won’t find in textbooks. If you want to learn extra fast, use the Slideshow tool.
Just tap or click on “view slideshow.” Then sit back and review the words and phrases. Find the vocabulary lists in the vocabulary drop-down menu on the site. These vocabulary lists are free for all users.
Number Two: Take the audio and video lessons.
One of the best ways to learn new words is by hearing and using them in conversations. This is because it gives you the opportunity to understand how the words are actually used.
In every lesson dialog, you'll likely come across some words you don’t know. But don’t worry, because our teachers translate everything.
When you hear the conversation again at the end of the lesson, you'll be familiar with the words you didn't know at first.
Number Three: Learn with our "2000 most common words" list.
A quick question: How many words do you think you need for conversational fluency? 3000? 5000? It's actually not as many as you think.
Language experts say you need about 1500 words to reach conversational fluency. With our "2000 most common words list," you get access to key vocabulary words you need to boost your conversation skills.
The words are broken down into simple categories such as adjectives, nouns, verbs, food, drinks, numbers, months, and so on. So you can go category by category and focus on what you are most interested in first.
Number Four: Study with Spaced Repetition FlashCards
With this tip, we’re not talking about paper flashcards. We’re talking about the smart flashcards that you can find in our Premium Study Tools.
This is an automatic system individualized for each member based on their study needs. First, you'll use the cards to check your knowledge. Then, according to your answers, the cards will be sorted according to which words you need more practice with. Words that you struggle with will be shown to you more and more. You'll see words that you know well less often. This system helps you study more efficiently--it displays the words you need to work on and knows when you should refresh your knowledge. This helps make sure you don't forget vocabulary.
In every study session, these cards will help you fresh your memory on the words you learned last time and introduce new words.
Number Five: Use the words.
After you learn a new word, using it right away is crucial to remembering it.
So, when you’re done with a lesson or a vocab list here’s something you can do: Leave a comment! Make up a sample sentence and post it in the comment section. Write it down in a notebook. Or shadow the word with a lesson's dialogue.
