  • Hey guys. What I feel about learning vocabulary is this: In a given moment, if you keep learning new words, you will start to learn new words by inferring their meanings based on your previous experience. For example the word “hogwash”, hog+wash at least give you an easy mnemonics hint. Because washing a hog make no sense.
