    Welcome to the forum.

    Are you learning English at formal classes or are you teaching yourself at home? It is quite difficult to learn a language without a teacher but it's not impossible.
    What type of books have you tried to read in English? Start with easy books, maybe a book for children.
    If you try to watch English TV or films, you need to know that you will not understand every word. Don't try to watch or listen too carefully. Make sure that you have an English radio station on at home all the time, so that you are surrounded by the language. Don't consciously listen to it. After a while (a few weeks perhaps) you will notice that you understand more words every day.

    As far as vocabulary goes, try to learn a new word in a complete sentence. Don't just try to remember the word "umbrella", for example, and its Italian equivalent. Learn a sentence such as "When it rains, I must remember my umbrella".

    Please see my amendments to your post above in red. Remember to capitalise the word "English" at all times. We only use one single punctuation mark at the end of a sentence.

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    ***NOT A TEACHER***

    Also, you need to know when to use the indefinite article (an). An easy question not a easy question.

    Re: A easy question

    **** I am not a teacher ****

    Welcome to the forum.

    In addition to what emsr2d2 has advised (that you learn a sentence with the word in it, rather than just its equivalent in Italian (or just trying to memorize the meaning in English) ), you may find it helpful to use intelligent flashcards such as Anki or Mnemosyne which are (free) softwares. They are also called Spaced Repetition Systems (SRS) and you can read about it here. Good luck to you for learning a lot of new words.
