    Smile work on her grammar

    While Jen's vocabulary is improving, she still needs to work on her grammar.



    Does the above sample read well, especially the part in bold? If yes, what does the part in bold convey? Is it to strengthen/build up/improve her gramar?

    The sentence is fine and the bold part means everything you mention. To work on means to improve all areas in general in this context
