English Proficiency Programme

Vocabulary Building

Lots of words can be learnt together through
            Etymological Connections (word-root, prefixes, suffixes etc)     and
            Semantic Connections (meaning, synonyms, nuances, usage etc).

In the course of your normal reading, suppose you encountered the word     "corroborate"     a few times here and there.

Interesting word!

As you look up dictionaries, thesauruses and other resources (in traditional bound books as well as web-sites), you find a lot of illuminating material.

Some rich web-sites.

Important: You should have something like 'normal reading' to encounter interesting words,
AND then
take interest to get into such scrutiny - once in a while.

Read a lot.   Yes, fiction.
