    Welcome to the forum.

    PS english- it's English
    PPS spelling grammer- there's a spelling mistake there (grammar) and as they're separate things, you could use a conjunction (and) to connect them.

    First of all, throw your thesaurus in the trash. Next, concentrate on the little things that demonstrate an imperfect knowledge of standard English.

    ALWAYS capitalize the first-person pronoun I.
    The plural of yourself is yourselves.
    Always capitalize proper nouns and proper adjectives English.

    I don't use a thesaurus, Infact i don't even own one. I am learning new vocabulary that i would like to you use more often, to help with memorisation, and to learn different way's in which i can use it. The problem I face is that even though I have learnt the new words I often try to recall them in conversation but fail miserably.

    I feel my spoken and writen English is in privation, due to my implacable and fruitless memorisation.
