Sabes por qu es difcil aprender palabras en ingls?
1) Para un hispanohablante, la gran mayora de las palabras en ingls son sonidos ininteligibles que no
significan absolutamente nada. Si la palabra nueva te resulta familiar solo se puede deber a dos motivos: es
una palabra de origen latino o la has escuchado en los medios de comunicacin.
Recuerda: Dado que el ingls es un idioma de origen germnico, muy alejado del espaol, no se asimila un
nuevo sonido hasta que no se repite unas diez, a veinte veces, hablando. Algunas palabras incluso tienen
que llegar a repetirse unas cien veces para que se queden grabadas en la memoria.
2) Hay, al menos, dos tipos de vocabularios. El vocabulario del ingls hablado y el del ingls escrito. Esto
quiere decir que hay palabras que lees pero que no se suelen usar en ingls hablado y palabras que escuchas
pero que no se suelen escribir. Las palabras de ingls hablado son las ms difciles de aprender porque una
gran mayora no son de origen latino; son "phrasal verbs", o palabras de origen germnico.
Recuerda: Es mejor empezar aprendiendo el vocabulario del ingls hablado ya que ser el que ms vas a
necesitar en el da a da.
3) El nmero de palabras que hay que aprender para hablar con cierta fluidez ronda las tres mil. Aprender
tres mil palabras es difcil y toma tiempo, por tanto, necesitaremos determinacin a prueba de fuego.
Recuerda: Para incrementar tu vocabulario, determinacin a prueba de fuego; esto significa planificacin y
constancia.
4) Por cada palabra, hay que aprender "pronunciacin" y "deletreo" (spelling). Si no sabes escribir una
palabra, no importa demasiado porque siempre puedes buscarla en un diccionario, pero si no sabes
pronunciarla realmente no sabes esa palabra.
Recuerda: Solo puedes decir que sabes una palabra si puedes pronunciarla y colocarla correctamente en una
frase. Consejo: Bscate ahora mismo alguien para hablar.
Cmo superaremos todas estas barreras?
Slo hay una manera: con mucha determinacin y un buen mtodo. Suponiendo que ya tenemos la
determinacin, veamos los mtodos.
Una de las mejores maneras de aprender vocabulario es viendo pelculas en ingls con subttulos. Ves la
imagen, escuchas cmo suena y ves cmo se escribe.
Ni que decir tiene que otra fantstica manera de aprender vocabulario es cantando.
Otra buena frmula es hablando. Cuando no sabes cmo decir algo, la necesidad de comunicarte te lleva a
buscar las palabras que necesitas para expresarte. As que piensa durante el da frases en espaol y piensa
cmo las diras en ingls. Si tienes dudas pregunta a un profesor.
Otra forma eficaz de incrementar tu vocabulario es leyendo. La gran ventaja de la lectura es que
aprendes las nuevas palabras en un contexto determinado. La desventaja es que no sabes cmo suena la
palabra. Por ello, la lectura debe combinarse siempre con prcticas de conversacin. Tambin son buenos
los audio-books para leer y escuchar al mismo tiempo.
Por ltimo, se aprende vocabulario estudiando y echando mano de todos los recursos que tenemos a
mano: diccionarios, internet,trucos para memorizar, juegos, crucigramas (crosswords), el ahorcado
(hangman), leyendo las noticias en ingls, etc
Cmo recordar vocabulario nuevo?
1. Traduciendo la palabra a tu idioma. Por ejemplo: coche car (ingls).
2. Describindola en espaol. Por ejemplo: vehculo con motor y de cuatro ruedas para transportar
personas.
3. Haciendo un dibujo.
4. Ponindola en contexto. Por ejemplo: Mi coche se ha estropeado y tengo que llevarlo al taller.
5. Colocndola dentro de un grupo lxico. Por ejemplo: coche, camin, moto, etc.
