Let me ask you a question: were you flipping flashcards in the crib?
You likely learned thousands of words without any conscious studying, simply absorbing them before you knew how to hold a pencil.

People don’t often gossip with SAT words, nor do you tend to encounter them in your everyday books/movies, which is why we pivot to “conventional” studying methods as we get older.
However, if you encountered “big” words more often, your vocabulary could continue to improve, painlessly and (almost!) effortlessly, ad infinitum!
