Building your vocabulary can give you a lot more to talk about in English. Even if your grammar is incorrect, with more words available you can discuss more subjects – and be understood even if you make mistakes! There’s really two main ways to learn vocabulary – from the words you need and use in everyday use (essential vocabulary as you need it) and by grouping new vocabulary into themes.
