• • Continue increasing your vocabulary by using "Alan's technique (from FluentU blogs@fluentu.com):
      -  Before you go into the shower, identify 5 words that you want to learn.
      -  Create a sentence that links those 5 words.
      -  The sentence doesn't have to make sense. It just has to be highly memorable.
      -  Keep repeating that sentence to yourself in the shower.
      -  See if you can remember it until you're done showering.
Voila!
You'll find that the words are stuck in your head."
