How to Learn English Synonyms


Learning synonyms, words with an identical or similar definition to one word according to the dictionary, helps broaden a person's vocabulary and make it easier to write. By utilizing repetition, you not only memorize the words, but the spelling. A thesaurus, either in book form or online, contains a list of synonyms. When memorizing synonyms, do one main word at a time. Learning the synonyms to multiple words can cause confusion.

Things You'll Need

  • Thesaurus
  • Write down the word you wish to learn the synonyms for at the top of a piece of paper.

  • Look up the word in the thesaurus. Write down the list of synonyms provided on the piece of paper in a list format.

  • Write each word on the list 15 to 20 times a day on a piece of paper for two weeks.

  • Write the main word on a blank piece of paper. Write down all the synonyms from memory underneath it. Compare the new list to the master list. If you forgot any words, repeat step three for one week. Retest yourself after that week.
