SAT Vocabulary - Lesson 3

Karl Schellscheidt -

free sat test video After watching vocabulary Lessons 1 and 2, you’ve hopefully committed to building a list of new words you encounter, not just for the SAT test, but also for life beyond. The early frustration you feel “acquiring” new words will ease as you get better and better at acknowledging a new word, writing it down, and committing it to memory.

Vocabulary Prep for the SAT Test — Lesson 3 (transcript)

If you haven’t watched part 1 and part 2, you may want to do that because what I’m going to say may not make too much sense to you otherwise. If you’ve done part 1 and part 2, congratulations! You’re coming back, you’re doing a great job, and hopefully you’ve recently made the commitment of memorizing a bunch of words and then waiting to see or hear them appear in life. Hopefully you’ve been rewarded with a high percentage of those words.

I want to offer you a little of encouragement now. You may have put a big effort into memorizing those first group of words, but let me tell you something: the more you memorize words, the better you will get at it and the more efficient you will get. So if it’s taking you an hour total to memorize the first ten words, by the time you get to number 101 to 110, those are going to go much quicker. Trust me on this one!

The more you memorize, the better you will get at memorizing and the easier it’s going to get and the more words you’re going to connect. Also, just the more powerful you will become, the more aware you are going to be of everything that goes on in life, every conversation you hear, every conversation you’re a part of, every show you watch, or every social event you go to, you’re going to be that much more with it with a strong vocabulary.

Again, keep memorizing words; you will get more and more efficient. It will get easier and it’s definitely worth it! There’s one part left, there’s a part 4. Please watch that one, I want to share some of my personal experiences with you and hopefully give you the rest of the inspiration you need to truly change your life.
