    I would say use a dictionary when a word prevents you from understanding something. If the context helps you feel that you understand, then is there a need to look a new word up? It will slow you down and might get in the way.

    well i say your english isn't bad. its pretty good actually; you can improve your english vocabulary by buying those eng vocab games. i don't know if they have it in asia but i know they do in canada and they are pretty cheap.
    cost like $5 cad per disk

    Re: how to improve English

    Hi my name is Antonio. I was born in Mexico City and I speak spanish. I live in Lake Oswego, Oregon. I've been in this country for about 7 years. My English is very poor. I'd like to practice my writing with some one that can tell me if I am making progress.
