Learning Foreign Vocabulary - words that sound similar
Often, with foreign languages, you will have words that start with
the same letter, or have a similar sound to the English word it represents.
Remembering these can help you to recall the word you need when
exam time comes around...
In German the word for 'street' is 'strasse'. Although it is
not identical it starts with the same letters 'str'. If you remember this it
should enable you to remember the rest of the word (this is how you learned
to read English so why not do the same for your foreign language).
In French the word for 'butter' is 'beure'. It starts with the
same letter, but apart from that the only other common thing is the sound. Try
it now - say 'butter', then say 'beure'.
