Etymoliterat offers a unique way of learning languages by
actively making multiple etymological connections and
hereby facilitating the memorizing of vocabulary. Follow these
three steps and enjoy the benefits of etymological learning.
• Step One:
Choose a text that interests you. Click on the
words that are unfamiliar or
that you feel unsure about. Try to memorize the
translation, displayed in the
schematic's first line.
• Step Two:
Try to remember further related
words in the language the text is written in.
These words are always listed directly under the main word in the schematic.
• Step Three:
Try to remember further related words in other languages.
See these words as an etymological cloud surrounding the main word.
• Benefit One: You will notice that any connection in an etymological cloud
works both ways: Anytime you
stumble upon one of the words of an etymological cloud, you
will instantly have access to connected
words in the same language and even in other
• Benefit Two: Your vocabulary will increase
at a faster pace, as you are learning several languages at
the same time. Conscious connections between languages will
enhance separation of languages while speaking.
• Benefits Three: With time, your intuition concerning etymological
connections will increase - to a point where you may even
understand words, you never have heard of before.
