One of the most common questions I get is how to learn and remember advanced vocabulary. That is something I wanted to help with in 2019 and this lesson was definitely the most popular. After you learn these new words, watch my lesson on how to remember new English vocabulary.
In 2019, students in our Advanced Conversation course discussed mindfulness, life/work balance, and how to live a more simple and joyful life. I love helping our students have in-depth conversations on topics that our community cares about.
In this lesson, I share some of the same vocabulary with you.
One common mistake I often hear is using the word ‘very’ too much.
For example: very fun, very interesting, very hard, very little, etc.
Native speakers don’t like to use the same word again and again and again. Instead, we like variety with a mix of simple and advanced vocabulary. In this lesson, I teach you how to do that.
