Expand Your English Vocabulary by Focusing on What You Like
Lindsay: This is an All Ears English Podcast, Episode 28: Wisdom Wednesday.
Gabby: Welcome to the All Ears English Podcast, where you’ll finally get real, native English conversation. Now here are your hosts, Lindsay McMahon, the ‘English Adventurer’ and Gabby Wallace, the ‘Language Angel,’ coming to you from Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
Lindsay: In today’s episode, learn how to expand your English vocabulary by focusing on what you like and what you’re interested in.
Gabby: Hey guys. How’s it going?
Lindsay: Hey. It’s going all right. How ‘bout (about) you?
Gabby: Good. So today we’re going to give a tip for (um) learning languages and the tip is to focus on your interests.
Lindsay: Yes. This is great idea because, (you know), you need to stay interested in what you’re doing and this is going to motivate you to keep moving forward. What’s an example of this? When have you done this Gabby?
Gabby: Well, I’m really interested in Latin music. I love to dance Salsa, Merengue, Bachata and so I’m always listening to Latin music. So, (you know), as I’ve been learning Spanish throughout my life (like) gosh for ten years now.
(Um) I have learned so much from music. And it’s great because the lyrics in these songs (um) are often (like) pretty commonly used phrases and the way that people talk. (Um) so it’s been really helpful to listen to, to memorize the lyrics and to sing along. It’s just helped in a lot of ways, with (um) listening comprehension, with pronunciation (um), and just like cultural references too.
Lindsay: Yeah. And I would imagine you go to the classes as well and you must meet people who are Spanish speakers for example or Portuguese.
Gabby: Oh yeah. Absolutely. Absolutely. That’s a great point. And so (um) music is one way to help you learn a language, but (um) just focus on your interests (like) for example if you’re interested in food, try to learn the vocabulary of ordering or the vocabulary of different ingredients.
Lindsay: Right. Try cooking in English.
Gabby: Yeah. Exactly (like) (um) reading recipes in English. (Um) yeah, just labeling things in English. What else? if you’re interested in sports.
Gabby: Focus on that. Yeah.
Lindsay: Right. Yeah. I sometimes recommend (um) to students to just go ahead and join a meet-up group that you’re interested in and then go ahead and participate in that activity with native English speakers who are also interested in that thing.
Lindsay: Right? Like photography.
Gabby: Well and the thing is, if you have a particular, a particular interest, (like) let’s say photography and you learn a lot of vocabulary about that specific topic, well you might think ‘Well, how is that going to be useful because it’s so specific?’ But the thing is a lot of the vocabulary that you’ll learn is going to apply to other areas that you might not think of right away, but (um), but it will help you out in other areas of English.
Lindsay: Definitely. So stick with your interests and make it easier on yourself.
Gabby: Yeah. Absolutely. (Like) if I can just go back to your example about cooking. (Um) if you learn the verbs like ‘to mix’ or (um) to… Lindsay: I don’t know
Gabby: …to, to ‘to beat.’
Gabby: ‘To blend.’ These are verbs that are definitely used in other contexts.
Lindsay: Right. Right. For sure.
Gabby: Right. Yeah.
Lindsay: Yeah. That’s true. So…. Yeah. Find a – maybe find a partner who also enjoys the same thing and hopefully who is a native English speaker at the same time. So you can cook with that person.
Gabby: Yeah. That’s a good tip.
Lindsay: Could be a good way to do it.
Gabby: Great. So yeah, I love this tip. And (um)… yeah. I’ll see you tomorrow for… Lindsay: See you tomorrow.
Gabby: …Deep Thoughts Thursday.
Lindsay: Deep Thought Thursday.
Gabby: All right.
Lindsay: See you then.
Gabby: Okay. So (you know), I’ve actually talked with 30 different students over the past few months and a lot of the students that I’ve spoken with have said that they’re at an intermediate level or high intermediate level and they just can’t seem to find a way to move beyond that intermediate level, to move to the advanced level. And this is what we wanna (want to) help you guys with, but if you really wanna (want to) move to that level, it’s gonna (going to) require a little bit more of a commitment, okay. So go for the premium transcripts that we have available for you and in order to get those, you need to go to www.allearsenglish.com/conversations. So check it out.
