I have a question and I want you language learners to answer it
Please share any ideas
Is it a right thing to start learning words from a vocabulary book and collect more examples from some dictionaries like Longman and Oxford and start memorizing them. ?
Is it going to help me to speak like an American .
Is there any other method to increase my knowledge of vocabulary faster?
Do have any tips?
Please help me
Your way would work, but I learned of a way that I think is much better. I use Anki, a free ¨spaced repetition¨ computer program to help me review words on a schedule that research shows is most efficient for memorizing things.
I do as he describes in this video below. I watch a video or movie in my target language that has subtitles in my target language as the source for finding words I want to memorize .

Read whatever is interesting or relevant to you, such as a newspaper or a book you like, or a book on something that interests you. Look up the words you don't understand in a dictionary, and write them down to review later. I don't know what is a vocabulary book, but I do know you need to see a word in a context to remember it, so try to memorize the whole sentences rather than just words.
