  • Thanks dear teacher Hala for your good topics but I wanna ask :

    I always use my own words that are always repeated in my writing but I feel that my writing  has the same vocabs so the same flavor ... It is my problem in writing , so is it better to use synonym dictionary to have new words?


    • @ Bright- rubies:

      I think synonym dictionary can help you ,but you have to pay attention to the examples and the general context ,some synonym can't give you the exact meaning!

      Learning more vocabularies can be by:

      -Reading .It's the key in developing new vocabularies .

      -Read and memorize with the use of new words regularly .

      -Try to write aside the new words and study it consistently and use them in sentences from time to time then day by day your vocabularies will increase .

      Thank you for sharing your comment ! Best wishes dear !
