    1. What subject did you write your paper on today?

    2. I don't know much vocabulary. Which is why I lack confidence when speaking English.

    3. A fish bone got stuck in my throat. / I have a fish bone stuck in my throat. / There's a fish bone stuck in my throat.

    4. I helped him improve his English. / I helped him with improving his English.
