Consejos para el vocabulario

No te quedes atrás y sigue al pie de la letra estos consejos para que puedas ampliar tu vocabulario en inglés, y sobre todo, el vocabulario para el PET.

  1. Utiliza las palabras nuevas con frecuencia para no olvidarlas. Escribe un diario o texto breve sobre cualquier tema.
  2. Escribe palabras en notas adhesivas y pégalas. Visualmente tendrás una noción de lo que significa la palabra.
  3. Traduce las estrofas de tus canciones favoritas.
  4. Haz una lista de vocabulario en la que pongas la palabra en inglés, su traducción y un ejemplo creado por ti.
  5. Siempre aprende las palabras en su contexto.  En lugar de escribirlos en listas aleatorias, intente colocarlos en frases. Así sabrás la forma correcta de utilizarlos en la vida real.
  6. Aprende los sufijos y prefijos de las palabras. Por lo general las palabras que tienen el mismo sufijo o prefijo forman parte de la misma familia. Por ejemplo la terminación ly hace referencia a los adverbios.

Como para todo examen, es importante conocer la estructura del examen PET antes de rendir la prueba.
