Today we started our three day tour in Leeds with Ron Batt from @rowingaustralia to share what we do and exchange ideas. We introduced Ron to @universityofleeds, @ehcleeds, @tgbc2016 and GB Rowing @matt_pau1. We have some truly great partners in the city. More @rowleeds meetings tomorrow and lab visits to come. #collaboration#research#RowUK
Using the same word over and over again can get really annoying and will be penalized in exams. What's more, it may not convey the meaning you have in mind, which is why knowing synonyms is important.
Let me give you an example. "I want to read a new book but my mother said she doesn't have money. But I saw what was inside her purse earlier. But no matter what I say, she won't give me money. But I wanted that book so badly that I went to beg my dad to buy it." Too many "but"s, yet it many of them don't convey the meaning I have in mind. But I can fix the problem by using synonyms. "I want to read a new book but my mother said she doesn't have money. However, I saw what was inside her purse earlier. Unfortunately, no matter what I say, she won't give me money. Yet I wanted that book so badly that I went to beg my dad to buy it." Way better, isn't it?
So if you want to sharpen your vocabulary with synonyms, use a thesaurus.

Whereas you are taught that you only understand a word if you can explain it in your own words, there is actually an extra step which is omitted if you're learning new vocabulary in your mother tongue. You must, in fact, also be able to explain the word in its own language. Why? Because people won't be able to judge whether or not you truly understood a word if they can't understand you. It potentially shows at the same time that you know its intended use in its language.
Thank you, @hartlogic for making me as one of your speakers yesterday. I am glad that have explained the insight of being a stylist and fashion editor succeed in 'climbing' you to the next level of comprehension, on getting a recognition at the world of style needed the bravery to be different and possessing the purest heart to inspire others; and not losing your active-civic duty for always being kind along the journey.
Grat* to you, @annetyagiardy who were asking me how to look great and who actually listened; as same as the others.
What's the #1 problem you're struggling with when learning a new language? Leave your answer in the comments below. 👇🎓 Personally, it has to be oral expression, but that's because I've always been more of a writer than a speaker. 😊
Les comparto esta imagen que encontré en Pinterest, con la finalidad de que puedan inspirarse en tener un espacio en sus hogares, que les mlotive a estar en él, que sea su templo y les proporcione paz. Es muy rico llegar a nuestros hogares y respirar armonía. Me encanta esta combinación de elementos y colores. Espero les sirva!

Talking to native speakers is an excellent way to practice and improve your vocabulary, but don't expect every native speaker to be able to teach you everything you need to know regarding a language's mechanisms, etc.
To them, it's natural. Unless they spent time learning their native language in details, they may have trouble explaining some notions to you. So be careful when it comes to choosing a "teacher" when what you want to know isn't the language itself (vocabulary), but rather HOW IT WORKS.

To reach fluency, you must get out of your comfort zone. If you learn new words by translating them, then you still put a safe distance between you and the language you're studying.
