How to build up a stockpile of French Vocabulary?

It is inevitable, when learning the French Language, that the amount of vocabulary to memorize is substantial. But acquiring an ever growing supply of words is an essential aspect of developing your communication skills.

There are many resources to help you learn the French Vocabulary,such as word list,
flashcards, posters or text books. 

Everybody has its own preferences.  The main thing is to find some effective methods of storing new knowledge, and not to forget it before having had the chance to use it.

These words can be grouped by difficulties, sounds or length, but very often they are associated by theme.

It is also about learning a manageable amount of words at once.

One of the best way of achieving that is to make 

a Brainstorm

Create a thought shower with a main word in the centre, linked to all other related words that you have learned.

eg: Les repas

All the other words around it include le déjeuner, la salade, le pain ….etc

It is a good idea to know how many words you studied so you don’t stop after 10 when you should have written 20.
