Mnemonic method to memorize vocabulary (A MUST READ)
Mnemonic is a powerful memory aid to memorize any information with some link words. And vocabulary is a set of abstract words. All the words are non tangible in nature. As we know that our brain is not capable to memorize abstract information. We need to convert the abstract language into brain language. This can easily be done with the help of encoding method and then, we can link the meaning of the word with the encoded word of given word. This process is basically concerned with the photographic memory. We are supposed to bring clarity in our visualization system. We require a great expertise to master this methodology. The link word of the given word is also called Key word. Following are some of the rules for making these key words:
Select one word to represent a longer thought or several subordinate thoughts.
  1. Generate your own keywords.
  2. Construct a mental image of the keyword & the word to learn.
  3. Keyword and word should be linked with the mental image.
  4. Keywords should be visualizable.
  5. Keywords should be interactive.

Let us take an example of the word persuade that means to convince or to influence.
Now, we can easily encode the word persuade into purse (mnemonic) with the help of encoding method.
Now, we can imagine that a woman is being persuaded to buy a purse. Please practice this imagination exercise vividly.
With the same method, we can memorize all words of English Language.
