Tip #02: Learn Word Groups
Avoid learning English ONE word at a time! Instead, learn a word as part of a phrase, or even better, in a complete sentence. In other words, learn English in chunks!
Why?

Slide 4:
Reason 1: Learning word groups is more INTERESTING and EFFICIENT.
By learning a word as part of a group, the brain remembers it more easily and it avoids the learning process becoming BORING.

Slide 5:
Example: GRADUAL/GRADUALLY
Learn GRADUALLY as part of a sentence:
“The weather gradually deteriorated as the day progressed.”
Now you have a useful phrase – gradually deteriorated, (adverb – verb) or, gradual deterioration (adjective – noun)

Slide 6:
Example: START-FINISH | BEGINNING-END
Learn a word as part of an antonym pair. One word then triggers the other word in the memory. Certain words go naturally together. A native speaker wouldn’t say, “From start to end.” He would say either, “from start to finish”, or, “from beginning to end”.
This way you learn 2 words for the price of 1, speeding up the learning process.

Slide 7:
Reason 2: Learning word groups helps your fluency and rhythm.
Native speakers often run words together in a group, rather than pronouncing each word separately.

Slide 8:
Example:
“To be honest, I didn’t think you would be on time.”
“to be honest” means you are speaking truthfully about your own feelings and thoughts. You can learn the word ‘honest’ by itself, but learning the phrase “to be honest” can really help your fluency and make you sound more like a native speaker.
