Read the recognized dictionary
Please note that you must try to improve your English vocabulary even if you are not desiring to migrate abroad. Because all the MNCs who are going to conduct campus placements in your college will also give priority to the candidates who can communicate in the English language. Therefore, carry a dictionary with you so that you can read it in your free time. You can download an English dictionary on your smartphone but this will distract you. Moreover, learning the words in an organized manner can help you remember them easily. But you must keep a recognized dictionary with you that explains the actual meanings of a word. You can prefer English to English, English to Hindi, or English to the regional language.
Learn words with patience
Have you decided to learn 50 words daily? Well, before making that decision let us remind you that there can be different meanings of a single word. So, avoid learning so many words in a day because it can confuse you. You have to learn every word with patience. Give time to a word you have learned by creating some examples. Note that you have to take a glance at the pronunciation and examples to catch their accurate sense. For this, we advise you to prepare a notebook in which you can write 5 examples that you have created. Make sure the examples you are creating are accurate.
Some interesting ways to enhance your vocabulary
Watching movies or reading novels will surely help you get a stronghold over the English vocabulary. Hence, don’t ignore any word that comes to your eyes.

You must come across a situation that can help you apply this word suitably in the conversation. But make sure you have learned the actual meaning of the word.
Avoid reading the meaning of the words. Instead of cramming the meanings, try to analyze the actual meaning of the words. Try to relate them with examples. Then ask yourself if this word perfectly fits here. Moreover, increase your knowledge of synonyms, antonyms, homonyms, and homophones.
