How Do You Memorize Vocabulary? Taking my Topik 1 in April and stuggling with memorizing the vocab. I started an intense course in Mid Feb and was told by the instituation to sit for Topik 1 in April (I believe it's really rushed). I am having trouble memorizing the vocabulary, and if I don't understand the word, I can't understand the context and answers. Any tips on memorizing vocabulary for TOPIK1?

This is a little late.  But what I would do is get all the vocab you have to learn and start making sentences with them.  Make sentences about things you care about using all the grammar structure you know.  I would probably make a minimum of 10 sentences per word.  It is a lot of work, but this should really help you remember the vocab.  What I would also do is put the vocab words in a flash card and look at them everyday.  That will help you retain the vocab.  Good luck!

Try using flash cards!!!!

They are very useful, but many people don't know how to use them properly. Most of the time when a person uses flashcards, they go through one side of the card trying to answer what is written on the back of each individual card. Although this is good, you are only doing half the work. A person must then go through the cards on the REVERSE side of the card.

For example,

"Suzie was looking at her flashcards for the Korean language. She started with the Korean side facing towards her and tried to respond with the corresponding English word. "워요일 is Monday", "화요일 is Tuesday", "수요일 is Wednesday"; using this pattern, Suzie finished studying her flashcards. Then she shuffled them and started on the English side, then she said the corresponding Korean word. "Sunday is 일요일", "Saturday is 토요일", "Friday is 금요일", "Thursday is 목요일"; after going through all of her cards, Suzie then completed her studying for the day. She studied in this way two times a day for seven days and was efficiently prepared for her TOPIK exam."

This is a little secret a philosophy professor once told me. Hope it helped! ^^
