Vocabulary building through the news

Post by terryfrd »

I spent 20 years doing daily English lessons based on the latest news for readers of the Bangkok Post newspaper. Every day I defined a large number of words. Based on my experience, I've started a YouTube shorts channel focusing on words seen in topics often covered in the news. https://www.youtube.com/@WordsFromTheNews You should understand each word within a minute.

You might also want some AI help (MS Copilot, Google Gemini, etc.) with words you learn. Use a prompt like: "Define mitigate and give five examples of its use." Add "in easy English" if necessary.

Can you share this learning method in more detail? For example, how you memorize vocabulary or use it in sentences.
