Opposites (Reviewed)

Mend
Crumpled up
Shred
Temptation

Take advantage of automatic recognition once you understand binary opposition.

Linear thinking promotes the ability to effectively contrast lexical terms, regardless of semantic difficulty. Regardless of context or proficiency level, opposites allow the foreign language learner to increase his or her vocabulary level twice as fast. Lexical gaps can thus, be quickly filled whether upon learning a new term or revisiting a previously visited expression. Isn’t instantaneous awareness and comprehension what you have always been looking for when learning a new language?
