How to Learn Vocabulary Words for Deeper Conversations
Step 1: Choose a specific conversation theme, situation, or topic.
Step 2: Learn 5-7 vocabulary terms, idioms, or expressions that will help you communicate and go into depth regarding that topic. For example, if you want to talk about your personality in English, you might learn phrases like "I am an introvert," or "My brother is so obnoxious."
Step 3: Meet with a native conversation partner, tutor, or a group of other learners and practice the expressions that you have studied. Try to role play the situation or make it as realistic as possible. Ask your partner to correct your pronunciation, grammar, and usage.
