I would say use a dictionary when a word prevents you from understanding something. If the context helps you feel that you understand, then is there a need to look a new word up? It will slow you down and might get in the way. ;-)

well i say your english isn't bad. its pretty good actually; you can improve your english vocabulary by buying those eng vocab games. i don't know if they have it in asia but i know they do in canada and they are pretty cheap.
cost like $5 cad per disk
