Thank you very much.Yeah I know that.Unfotrunately I'm very bad in english,Do you think using this site without any other books or program can qualify me?
Well, I am from Egypt. I was really bad at first, then decided to go practise my English with some native speakers on a gaming forums. :D
By time I really got better. Just Try to use an online dictionary whenever you meet a new word, It will really save a lot of your time. Also, try to employ every new word you meet in a sentence, so you'll never forget it. That's how I improved my English.

Thank you both of you .Would I ask one more question please?!
for learning new words which is the better way?; Studying vocabulary books such as 1100 vocabulary.,504 words..,etc,.,or Reading newspapers and blogs and online texts and so on ,and then looking up the new word's meaning on dictinary then write them on notebook and memorize them? I know there are too many ways for learning vocabularies,but I really am confused about that..When I read texts and look for new words meaning it takes too much time of me.Anyway ...I wanna know how do you people learn vocabularies?...I have to mention that I dont have much time.As soon as possible I should learn many words so that i could be a good translator and can talk and listen very good,I am looking for a job as a translator,please help me
You cannot teach what you do not know. You are far from being in a position to teach IMO. You need to study a lot of the basics first. There's more to translation than knowing a lot of words.
I know all of these.but I have to get a job as soon as possible.and my field of study is english.Now what do i suppose to do?
Try to accept the fact that your English is not good enough to do what you would like to do,
But with study, there is no reason you can't attain the leve of English proficiency you want. So don't be discouraged -- you need to have a realistic understanding of your abilities now so you can map a path to where you want to be. And courses will be part of that.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
