The biggest problem for me now — I simply can't learn ANY new words…
I'm preparing for the TOEFL and the SAT now, and I found it's really difficult for me to learn, or memorize new words. I've tried everything I can use — flashcards, vocabulary books, notebooks, and so on. But to be honest, all of them DIDN'T WORK for me AT ALL. I had spent a whole day on a vocabulary book, and I learned nothing — not even a word — afterwards.
That's the biggest problem…I don't know what should I do. Sometimes I even feel quite hopeless, especially when I see my friends can learn several new words in a day.
I really need help now…any strategies, advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot!
BTW, I'm going to take the TOEFL in December, 2012 or January, 2013; and the SAT in January, 2013 or March, 2013.
