    Welcome to the forum.

    The most simple answer to your problem is that you must slow down even more and be more careful. If necessary, use your finger or a piece of paper (or a wooden rule) to cover up the words in a sentence that you have not read yet. Only move your finger/paper further along the sentence when you have read the next visible word in the sentence. Make sure you have read it and understood it before moving on. At the beginning, this might be very slow and sometimes the sentence won't seem to make sense but if you know you are missing words, then you need to go back to basics.

    As far as "b" and "d" are concerned, this is a common problem, especially for people unfamiliar with the English alphabet. Practice words which have either "b" or "d" in. Learn example sentences for each and practice the pronunciation. Learn words which contain both (bad, dab, bed, bod, bode etc) and do the same - learn an example sentence which helps you to remember both the spelling and the definition.

    Please look at the corrections I have made to your post in red. There is no need to capitalise random words in the middle of sentences. Follow these rules in written English:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - Always capitalise the word "I" and all proper nouns (India, English, London, Shakespeare, Microsoft etc).
    - End every sentence with a single appropriate punctuation mark.

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

    I am learning English. ​How to should I start? i.e Do I need to start with grammar or vocabulary or should I can start reading a book's story to get new words? and
    The main problem is that I am not able to continue learning English because of mother language using frequency I use my mother tongue most of the time.
    Can you help me on this as well?

    Thanks.
    Do you have a teacher helping you with English? It is a good idea for you to go to classes locally or try to get an online teacher. For proper classes, you will need to pay. It is difficult to say where you should start. As you can see, you make a lot of mistakes. You need to look at the basics. Learn the verbs and look at the construction of sentences. As I said in my last post, you also need to look at your capitalisation. I don't think you need to add to your vocabulary and learn new words until you are able to construct simple sentences correctly.
    Why did you say "I am not able to continue learning English?" Why not?

    Look again at the rules of written English I gave you in post #2. Start every sentence with a capital letter. Always capitalise the word "I". Note that "b" and "d" are not words, they are letters.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Good luck with the classes, and don't worry- what you don't understand today will seem simple in a short time.
