Recently we’ve been giving you some tips to help you learn new words. Today we want to look at a different way to learn English faster – learn phrases, not just words. In a previous post, we mentioned learning words in context. Learn how to say the words, not just the words themselves. What other words do they often go with? Are there any expressions which contain the word?

Think of it this way. If you learn a phrase with 4-5 words in, the speed you learn English will be 4-5 times faster!
