How Doctor Who Improved My Vocabulary

To improve your vocabulary, a crucial technique is "elaboration" — for example, learning and using a new word in its context. Watching good television shows can provide the necessary context you need for learning new words. In this article, we take a look at five words the popular television show Doctor Who has helped children across the globe (and universe?) to learn and understand.

Improving your vocabulary is a great way to communicate better, build your confidence, and blitz school exams. Everyone can benefit from increasing their vocabulary, from primary school children to university students and adults. Even established authors can learn a new thing or two!

Ultimate Vocabulary is a great PC program that can help you do just that (the Mac version will be out in the next year). With a wide range of interactive features, this program makes it easy and enjoyable to increase the number of words that you know and use with confidence.
