The Secret You SHOULD Know About Synonyms

There are several ways of improving your English fluency but there’s one study technique that can boost your fluency in a really short time. We call this Synonyms Mastery and it’s hardly ever talked about on different websites and English courses.

Think for a moment. When you speak your native language, how many different words and phrases do you use to express basic things like “good” or “amazing“? Probably quite a lot, right?

If you only could say “good” in one way in your native language, conversations would be quite boring. The same goes for English.

One of the most overlooked, ignored and unknown skill is the mastery of synonyms. But what’s actually a synonym?

This is what even some of the best language teachers get totally the wrong way. Most people think that a synonym to a particular word is another word that means the same.

NO! NO! NO! Not at all!

In our courses, we work with the following definition of synonyms: A synonym to a particular word is another word or phrase that has a similar meaning but shouldn’t be treated as the same word.

In fact, there are very few words/phrases in any language that mean exactly the same, and are used in exactly the same way. This is simply not true! Let’s see what a synonyms dictionary shows for happy: joyous, upbeat, elated, glad, delighted etc. BUT: these words are used very differently than “happy“.

Elated” is only for literary works, “upbeat” is a little hippy-ish, while “glad” and “delighted” have their own special fixed phrases and the list goes on and on.

If you don’t understand the differences between similar words, then you will NOT be a confident English speaker because you won’t understand in detail how words and phrases are used by native speakers.

In the first monthly package of Metaphor English Mastery System (this is our monthly course where you get new lessons every month), you can master the differences between the synonyms of everyday words such as:

* bowled over by

* blown away by

* respect

* get down to do something

* succeed in something

* zealous

* make good progress

* travel extensively

* eavesdropping

If you don’t know a few synonyms for each of these and the differences between them, then I suggest that you give Metaphor Mastery System a try. You can do that 100% RISK-FREE by clicking here.
