    Vocabulry is not an easy matter to deal with- some people learn a certain number of words every day, but this takes discipline and it is often difficult to decide in advance which words are going to be useful. It is a good idea to maximise what you already know- look at how we can change words with prefixes and suffixes so taht they become as flexible and useful as possible.

    Here's a good site that deals with vocabulary in creative ways:

    You're welcome. Practice is the key to all language development, so all communication will help- you either expand what you know, or get to use it better.
