Flashcards are a great way to learn vocab words because they force you to study actively. They naturally aid repetition, a key for study. Nobody remembers everything from the first try. Our brain takes up to 20% of the entire energy the human body consumes, so memory is naturally lazy.
We have created an app for android for working with flashcards. It is called “3 stacks”
If you don’t know the definition of a particular word, put it in a “Struggled” stack.
Pick up your “Struggled” stack. For words where you know the definition, place them in the second stack “Learning” stack” next to the “Know It” stack.
Repeat this process, placing the words in the stack you best consider.
Complete the sentences by using the following words.
Use each word once only..

I signed up for the gym today. In my induction they asked me what I want to do (like tone, lose weight ect) and then they gave me a program. It took about half hour.
At this moment I was thinking of all the fun expressions and phrasal verbs that are used in English to describe different types of exercises. Below you will find a description of equipment you can find at the gym, vocabulary and expressions:
Get in shape
Most people who go to the gym want to “get in shape“. It means to have a good body, and also to feel healthy. They want to breathe easier, be able to walk or run for a longer time, they want to feel good about their physical condition. (ES: ponerse en forma).
