Tired of learning ABOUT improving your vocabulary instead of actually IMPROVING IT?!

In this episode, I share with you an in-depth vocabulary exercise that will help you build pronunciation confidence and use new words frequently and confidently.

I based these drills on the understanding that there are many words you know but never use, for several reasons:

  • You’re not confident PRONOUNCING them.
  • They’re not accessible (you forget to use them)
  • You don’t feel confident using them correctly in a sentence
  • I developed a 5-step system to overcome these challenges and enhance your vocabulary.

People who have tried it told me that for the first time they felt that they were growing their vocabulary!

In this episode, we'll use this technique with the following words: inevitable, accurate, obvious, redundant, valuable. Afterward, you'll see how much easier it is for you to use them in a sentence.
