Learning some new Italian vocabulary is always challenging!

It is always very interesting to go through some Italian vocabulary.

But sometimes we try to learn some new words without any specific method and we forget them very quickly.

What is the best way to discover some new vocabulary?

Learning it from texts and listenings is always good as it is easy to understand it from the general context.

In this case students can guess meanings even though they are not immediately clear, considering the global meaning of the reading.

Otherwise, when the new vocabulary is not related to a text, we suggest to make a sort of conceptual map.

Therefore you can learn a number of words that are strictly related to each other.

That makes it easier!
