English words and slang terms
Each language has thousands of words. Based on the information from Oxford English dictionary, there are 171,476 English words in current use. However, you as a learner of English as your second language, need only several thousands of them.
Learning new English words is important
While knowledge of words only is not sufficient to formulate correct sentences, learning new vocabulary is still very important part of your study. Without words you can’t say and describe what you want to communicate.
Most important parts of speech (word categories) are as follows:
|1. nouns||(man, woman, time, child, mother, father, hand, year, day)|
|2. verbs||(do, have, be, say, get, see, look, want, use, find, tell)|
|3. adjectives||(good, bad, big, little, small, first, last, old, young)|
|4. prepositions||(to, for, in, on, from, at, with, about, of)|
