The internet is a lot like Ancient Egypt. People write on walls, and worship cats.

I’m not sure about the actual source of the above quote. It is repeated on many places on the internet. When you ask Google, you find 1 million results. But, the above picture is published by http://lolheaven.com/the-internet-is-a-lot-like-ancient-egypt-people-write-on-walls-and-worship-cats/

There is a variant of it as “Facebook is a lot like Ancient Egypt. People write on walls, and worship cats.”

Our sample word to learn today, is “worship”.

Step 1 – Get the definition of the term from different resources
In thefreedictionary.com it is defined as: “The reverent love and devotion accorded a deity, an idol, or a sacred object.” If you follow the link, you find lots of details about it.

Also in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Worship it is described as follows: Worship is an act of religious devotion usually directed towards a deity. An act of worship may be performed individually, in an informal or formal group, or by a designated leader.

Step 2 – Find sentences containing the term
Here are some sample sentences:
“His men worship him.”
“Alex, Bill and Katie attended worship together.”
“The islanders worshipped him, and occasionally identified him with Zeus, calling him Zeus Aristaeus.”
“Trees and curiously shaped stones were also worshipped, and artificial pillars of wood or stone.”

Step 3 – Use the word in your sentences
In India, some people worship cows.

Step 4 – Link the word with some related images and sounds in your mind.

Step 5 – Write down the word and sample sentences on a sheet of paper. Typing is not enough. By handwriting, you use different regions of your brain. So, you create some new links between your brain cells resulting better recalling of the word and its meanings.

Step 6 – Use the word in your daily conversations.

Step 7 – Repeat what you learned about the word after one day, one week and one month in order to place it in your long term memory.

Step 8 – Use the same procedure for the new words.

Step 9 – Add your comments below.

Do remember to follow me on social media too.
