best way to improve vocabulary?
grew with a tough childhood, pulled out of class. I was wondering if there is a way of improving my communication and expanding my vocabulary. Any websites or class recommendations?

Read anything and everything you can get your hands on. Books, newspapers, magazines, scientific journals, pamphlets, and anything else you can think of. Come on here and answer questions, and read the responses of other people. That will expand your vocabulary in a hurry.

I used to read the dictionary for fun. I'd just skim the pages until I found a word that was interesting and then I'd write it down along with the definition. I think if you do that weekly it'll probably help

Read a lot is the key to boost your vocabulary. Use a dictionary whenever you come across an unfamiliar word. Practice the words you have learned as best as you can. Writing down new words will help you a lot.

Read. Don’t just read books. Read articles. Watch YouTube videos.
Most importantly, develop this habit of stopping yourself whenever you come across a novel word. Believe me, this helped me a lot. Wherever I’m, I always stop and use dictionary.

Read, read, read and I don’t mean yahoo.com. Readers digest is a good magazine to read. I believe it has a a page or two just dedicated to vocabulary.
Read different books and magazines. Read science fiction, scientific, fantasy, detective, historical books.
Buy a dictionary. Start with the first word and go down the list. Find 10 words that you don’t known and learn what it means, how to use it, etc.

Actually a great way to do that is by simply reading books on a regular basis. Keep a dictionary nearby to look up new words.

Go to a used book store and buy cheap paperbacks and a good dictionary. That is really all you need. That and a lot of reading.
