I am going to show you 7 ways to help you permanently learn Arabic vocabulary and put it in practical use.
It is essential to learn how to read Arabic as this skill will help you to remember words faster and have more confidence in pronouncing them. with reading, you are seeing how the word is being written and within its context. Always make it a habit to underline the new Arabic vocabulary and refer to them in the context.
2. ) Flashcards
Flashcards are the classic way to learn Arabic vocabulary for an Arabic language learner especially the ones who work very well with visual clues.
The great thing about flashcards is that you can organise your words and design them in the way you want using different colours and fonts. Also, you can have them anywhere you go, on the bus, tube or train which make easier for you to revise anytime you want.
Now, there is a three-way to use flashcards:
I recommend you to start with Manual flash Card, you buy them from Amazon then use Online flashcard website like Quiz-let, it allows you to build up your flashcards and you can do them and practice via diffident games they have. Finally, use Already made flashcards like Anki site.
3) Practice WLCR (Write, Look, Cover, Repeat)
Write the word down then look at it, cover it with your hand, then try to remember it and say it Loud, then repeat the same process unit you get of the hang of it this strategy will help you to get familiar with the words you are learning.
4. Practice Practice Practice
The best way to learn Arabic words is to practice them. You can do that by writing down all the new words you learnt 5 to 10 times, then make sentences with its meaning, so you can create a context to help you remember them. Another way to practice is to make sure you use the new words when you are conversing with native Arabic speaker, for instance, if you learn all the vocabulary related to vegetables and fruit, why not go to the market and order all your food in Arabic, this will help you all to sustain the words in your memory.
5. Create context or memory :
try to associate the new words with a picture or sound that is similar to the word you are learning. now if you couldn’t find any picture or sound leave it for a while and come back to it later
6. Use social media:
We all have smartphones these days, and we don’t make full use of it when we want to learn a new language. start to record yourself speaking Arabic, record all the new words and listen to your voice. it is import to a language learner to get comfortable with his voice when speaking a new language, this is a very important step to boost your confide in speaking
7. Selective Learning:
This strategy is very important especially at the start of your learning. Many students learn so much vocabulary without being selective in their choices therefore, they feel that they have learned endless vocabulary and still can’t speak or use them.
You need to be very selective in your learning, for example, think about what are the most important words you need to know first, what are the first 100 words you need know that you can use them and practise speaking.
