    Post Vocabulary

    Can someone help to correct my writing. Thanks in advance. jkl


    Learning vocabulary will probably help me to improve my reading comprehension . I have tried to read some books but I gave up after reading a few pages. I try to practice some new vocabulary three to five days a week. Sometimes I finish a lesson of 15 words in an hour. Some words are easy to pronounce and some have very easy meaning that helps to learn them fast. When I find it is hard to understand a meaning of a word from English to English I check it in my language. There is a website that has over 50 lessons. Even though each words are not new to me, but they have some new definition that I do not know.

    Learning vocabulary will probably help me (to) improve my reading comprehension . I have tried to read some books but I gave up after reading a few pages. I try to practice some new vocabulary three to five days a week. Sometimes I finish a lesson of 15 words in an hour. Some words are easy to pronounce and some have very easy meanings that help me (to) learn them fast. When I find it is hard to understand the meaning of a word using only an English dictionary I check it in my language. There is a website that has over 50 lessons. Even though all of the words are not new to me, sometimes they have a new definition that I did not know.

    You can use the full infinitive after the verb "help" but many times speakers and writers will omit "to."
