How to Use a Mind Map to Improve your Vocabulary
Do you find it hard to memorize lists of words and phrases in large amounts? Deploy the use of a mind map, an invaluable tool that will help you organize vocabulary words, to-do lists and multiple processes in a quick and efficient manner…
Yup I often have trouble in memorizing vocabulary.. Will have a quick look..
thanks Ilene Springer
Hi, thanks for sharing tips.
I truly find it hard to memory the new words, my essay at class is often recommended that using words poorly. How can I do to improve my writing skill?
In my opinion:
The list of animals could have been learnt more easily with pictures ! May be they should have conducted more experiments, one with just a list, the other with pictures and the thrid with a mind map etc.
I am not sure if you can use mind map for language learning. You will be thinking about how to create a mind map. The mind map will increase in size with time. The actual map should be in the mind and not on the paper. Mind map can act as a reference as long as you haven't learnt anything.
Suppose you want to learn three forms of a verb. You can easily write these in the mind map, but a better method of learning is to learn the sentences from practical situations, dialogues, movies etc.
As language learning involves listening and speaking, mind map cannot be used here.
I completely agree that mind maps are a great way to memorize vocabulary, especially when the mind map is enriched with lots of colors, icons and images. I actually recently stumbled onto another article with the same topic, where I found a pretty cool mind map for German food vocabulary - you can check it out here: http://www.mindmeister.com/356248380/german-food-vocabulary
