Como usar a Lista das Palavras mais Comuns em inglês?

Em um post aqui no English o Alessandro postou um arquivo com as palavras mais usadas na língua inglesa.

Como eu devo usar essa lista? O que eu devo fazer para tirar mais proveito dela? E eu devo estudar X palavras por dia?

Obrigada!

To me, if you hear or see a word that is new to you, you can look them up. It´s as simple as that.

As for the usage of lists, you could get a dictionary of English to Brazilian students, and then you can see lots of different meanings to any given word. Sometimes you get surprised how words can have some almost unpredictable connotations, and to see some of them in context you can use the
http://www.thefreedictionary.com

And to see them on context, either in Portuguese or in English, you can look them up on Linguee.

Just to name a few sites, I didn´t mention many others, the list would go forever.

Anyway, the most important piece of advice I could give you is, the more you use the words the more you get used to them. That´s when you need list less and less.But this come with time, a little bit of time, it´s not something that happens overnight.

Eu não recomendaria uma lista. Dê prioridade por aprender dentro de um contexto. Comece com um livro infantil bilíngue. Ou um para jovens.

Será mais fácil lembrar que: 'Clara sujou a roupa de molho no sábado e ficou triste', que 'a casa é azul'.

Aprender no contexto de uma narrativa é muito mais fácil.

Leticia, I don´t advise you to learn X words a day, I agree with Charles when he points that out.

What I meant is, English has a "core" of words, one can take that list and strike out the words that he/she knows and little by little to search the others, not necessarily in order.

For example, someone interested in car and motorbike engines would meet the words "piston", "cylinder", "engine configurations" and the like.

One into fashion, "gossip", fond of knowing how celebrities live, etc, would go to a magazine like People and would soon be familiar with words like "scoop", "preview", "looks" etc.

Whereas the techy-savvy would to Wired magazine, the ones interested in the UK would read BBC (the beebee site) etc...and the newbie one could go straight to the Flatmates (still within the BBC site). Many would go to The Economist or Forbes, to know about finance and the state of the economy in the world (but not only that, one can find Science and other things there.)

I think doing something you like will be productive to your learning, then you can make use of a list to strike out words, to remind of some etc.
Indeed, context is always a powerful tool, and as I stated before, with time you don´t even count how words you know.
Or you do, but in the range of thousands, he hee. With the help of a site like this one (there you can set for English or Portuguese, as you wish):

http://www.lingholic.com/how-many-words ... ize-a-day/

Again, I didn´t mean one has to memorize tons of words, but one may (or may not) use a list as a reminding tool, to scrape the words one knows or even to see words in a new way (the several definitions, with the aid of the "word in a sentence" etc...

Concordo Paulo.

A memorização só deve acontecer com aquelas palavras e expressões que usamos sempre. Com as outras, basta entender pelo contexto.

No seu vocabulário pessoal, várias expressões se repetem, procure memorizar elas.

É por aí mesmo, sempre é bom memorizá-las.

Oh my! Meu cérebro!
De alguma forma, esta palavra "memorizar" me lembrou do truque mnemônico para lembrar o valor de Pi (matemática):

Sim é útil e grato memorizar um número útil aos sábios...
3.1415926536

Onde
Sim => 3
é => 1
útil => 4
E => 1
Grato =>5
Memorizar =>9
Um => 2
Número => 6
Grato => 5
Aos => 3
Sábios => 6

:D
Obrigada pessoal :D
