A small change I’m trying for learning a language (Polish) recording the exact context and context a new word or phrase emerges in. This is based on lexical approach principles. In the past I would either record the word in isolation with a “direct” translation or invent a phrase for it (so it had suitable collocations and was more memorable). Inventing these examples, however, could be troublesome. Often they weren’t very realistic. The solution is the situation they came up in. That would be a real situation and need to use that word. That’s why I’m trying this experiment. I’ll report back.
