Hi mylotters, I have attended seminars this week and I really learn a lot and this one thing that interest me and I know that it will interest you too and we can use it while we are doing our discussion here at mylot. That is Word Bank. have you ever heard it? According to the speaker we need to Bank atlest 5 new English words per day if we are using English as a second language. If we have bank new words everyday we can be rich in words and be able to bank at least 50,000 to 60,000 words per year. So friends start banking words today. It can be helpful and we can use it while we are doing our task and discussion here. Let us start becoming rich person in terms of words. How about you are you rich in words? Enjoy mylotting.

This is quite an interesting point. Yes I agree on these one. For us to able to enrich our second language, English that is, since Tagalog is our native language, we need to add more vocabulary or even add the peculiar one. To do that I think we need to read a lot. What I do I read novels from famous author like Paul Coelho

I don't know about word banks because I believe that words should be used often and not kept in a bank. I am just kidding of course but I wonder how anyone would keep a word bank. I study words and sometimes I read the dictionary just to learn new words. Will I remember my words by giving them away? Cheers!!

Ah, thaks for the information. I have a fixed stack in my mind. It means that I will forget the oldest word when I will learn a new one. It is like, I have 10 slots in my mind and I can have only 10 at a time. When I will push 11th then the 1st one will be kicked out. LOL! I am trying to increase that fixed slots in my mind! Thanks
