Alpha wrote:Hey!This exercise I perform nearly every day. This is what to do:First write down a list of verbs, nouns, etc., as many as possible on a piece of paper. e.g. said, like, chair, house...Without looking at the paper, chose a number, and find that number and the word in the list. If, for example, number 19 is the verb "said", write down as many synonymous of 'said' as possible during a certain time, say... three minutes.When the time is up, open up the thesaurus that -along with your dictionary- should be on the table next to your bed, and look up the word. Compare it to what you have written, and add other words you've found, too! That way, you refresh your mind by remembering words that might have been hiding in a lost corner in your brain (hey, it happened to me!), and learn new words, too! I hope this helps you !Cheers,Maisoon aka AlphaP.S. PM me if you need more explaining!Or for anything else, really.
