Hi everybody, Mermaid here. I asked this question out of my personal experiences and similar discussions on the internet. Last yesr, I memorized 8000 words in 7 days to pass GRE. Here, by saying memorizing, I mean when I see a word, I can recognize its one or two meanings that are used most frequently; by saying words, I mean most of the words are new to me. As you know, GRE words are too profeesional to be used in our daily life. And when I opend the GRE book yesterday, I still remember most of them. I feel excited. i saw many students ask the same questions. Some said 50, 100, 300, and some people said memorizing too many words would make us headache. So would you tell me about your experience? how many words is it normal for us to memorize every day?
