    Remember that we do not pluralise adjectives in English. The adjective is "new" and it stays the same with both singular and plural nouns.

    It is impossible to memorise every new word you find when you are reading. Vocabulary is a difficult area of any language. One good idea is to learn a whole sentence containing an important word.

    For example, the Portuguese word "camisa" translates to "shirt". Instead of just trying to remember the word, try learning the sentence "I have a blue shirt and a black tie". If you learn the sentence in context (clothing) you are more likely to remember the meaning.

    To help you remember the rule about adjectives and plural nouns, remember "I have two new shirts". This will help you remember "shirt" and also that a plural noun ("shirts") takes "new" (not "news").
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
