    Cool Sentences I cannot comprehend...is there another way?

    Hi, i cannot understand some sentences when i read a novel or any other articles for that matter. I was wondering if there is a website or a software where i can type in the sentence and it would be translated into a simpler form that could be understood...it would really help me a lot...i don't have anybody whose first language is English in my house.

    NOT A TEACHER

    No, unfortunately not. Online translators, such as Google Translate, usually don't do a good job. I'm afraid that there is no other way than to put in in the required effort, or alternatively, ask someone to help out.

    Mind you, Google translate is often good enough to give you the general idea. It's far from perfect, but it is useful.
