    Hi!

    1. First, you have to mend fences with English - English dictionaries; some of them, e.g. the Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English, have the defining vocabulary, around 2000 words, with which all the definitions (but only definitions, not example sentences) have been written. So, every time you look up a word in the dictionary you read the definition with familiar words listed in the defining vocabulary, thus memorizing new entries in English with continual repetition the same words, taken out of those 2000, and used in different definitions.

    2. Second, try to listen to VOA Special English. They also use the defining vocabulary in their broadcasting.
