How to Improve Vocabulary Fast
Your vocabulary refers to the words in a language you are familiar(熟悉的) with. We should learn some ways to expand it.
1. The more often you read, the faster your vocabulary can grow. Choose reading material that is slightly above your level and keep a dictionary with you to look up words you do not know.
2. If you do not meet with an unfamiliar word in your daily reading, use your dictionary to search for one.
3. Pronunciation is as important as definition because in order to add a word to your active vocabulary, you must be able to use it in speech.
4. E-mail your sister about how your cat is stubborn about sleeping on your pillow. The first time you use a new word in speech, it may seem strange. But the more you use it, the more fluent you will become in its use. Soon it will be a regular part of your active vocabulary.
5. Encourage them to ask you what your latest word is. Or let them ask for the definition of a new word you have used. The more you explain the meaning of a word to someone, the more likely you are to remember it.
A.Find a new word every day.
B.Learn the correct definition and pronunciation for each new word.
C.Your vocabulary contains the words you understand.
D.Read every day.
E.Tell everyone you are trying to increase your vocabulary.
F.Use your new word in speech and in writing.

As the lantern was coming near, the yellow light moved gradually to the man. The man asked, “ 5 , may I ask you whether you're really blind?”
The blind man answered, “Yes, the moment I stepped into the world, I couldn't see 6 .”
The man asked, “In that case, 7 do you carry a lantern?”
The blind man smiled, “At night all the people without light are just as blind 8 me, so I light a lantern.”
The man said, “I see, you light for others.”
But the blind man said, “No, I do it for 9 .”
“For yourself? But there is no 10 to do that.” The man felt surprised again.
The blind man explained, “Were you ever knocked by others 11 the dark?”
The man nodded, “Yes, sometimes.”
The blind man said proudly, “Believe it or not, I 12 knocked anyone. Although I'm blind, I carry the lantern, not only light for others, but let others see me, 13 they won't knock me.”
After hearing that, the man was lost in thought…
In fact, everyone has a lamp in himself. Light it actively not only for others, but also for yourself—Never put yourself in a dark 14 . When you feel left out and find it hard to 15 well with others, are you ready to light your lamp?
