Teach me vocabulary without spending extra time

posted by Jonas, permalink  

I'm trying to improve my vocabulary to sound sophisticated when I speak and write emails. There are several tools which helps me to learn a new word every day, but since it's out of context I usually forget most of them.


I was wondering that it would be nice if I can learn better vocabulary while doing routine tasks like browsing the web, but most of the web articles use dumbed-down vocabulary for the benefit of general audience and so I'm not learning any new words.

Have any of you faced this situation? How can this be solved?
