I use Dictionary of the Day: http://www.dictionary.com/wordoftheday/ and VocabVitamins.com. You can also try Meriam Webster. Also try cryptograms, crossword puzzles, play scrabble, get yourself a good book, a classic, and as soon as you find a word you are unsure of, look it up in the dictionary and a thesaurus, one that gives examples of how the word is used.

Crossword Puzzles Ordering high school or university vocab books Magic Word games Spend time looking at a few of my science posts ;p Scrabble Boggle I remember a few 52 deck of cards had vocab word/word games on them. There are also factoids on other versions of this :)

I subscribe to the Merriam-Webster website, they send a new word a day through email.Read, read lots and look up every word you don't know.Painstaking process but well worth it!

Join facebook, get the word a day application running and you will learn a new word every day. Lots of fun, as you can do the daily quiz as well.
