My English vocabulary is not so good. I have been searching exhaustively for something that could make my learning simple. Learning new words you never heard is a great pain in your head. I was always told that the best way to improve vocabulary is to read good books. Well that’s completely true. However, If you are short of time you cannot keep reading to improve your vocabulary. So luckily I found a site which provided me with audio word lists. They really helped me a lot.
The site is http://bdcube.wordpress.com/ I found many GRE words and their meanings described by Prof. Krupa Shankar in various audio files. The best thing is all the GRE material is free of cost here. This a great GRE material which is free of cost. Previously this blog was at http://bdcube.blogspot.com/. I am a person who prefers to listen to a lecture in the classroom rather than reading the whole text book. I know I am lazy and this is not the best thing for me. Anyway, these audio files were very useful for me to learn new words and my progress is good. I am indeed planning to record more words for myself so that i can listen to more words.
I hope the material available at bdcube will be useful to those who are preparing for GRE or working on to improve their vocabulary. Listening to these audio lists would also help you for TOEFL. So brace yourself and improve your vocabulary to thrash GRE and TOEFL.
Update: Also there is website which helps you learn new languages from the natives who know that language. It’s Livemocha. Check it out, if you believe in learning with practice this is the best source.
