    It's very difficult for me to remind all the words that i found unfimiliar with me. I can't write all of them in my notebook. Is there any special process that can lead me towards fluency of English Speaking.

      Hello, earnings33,

      I often advise my students to open up a free account at quizlet.com.

      You can easily create your own wordlists there.

      Once you have done so, you can generate flash cards, learning games and quizzes to help you learn.

      This works on your mobile devices, too.

      I hope that helps a bit and good luck to you!

      Regards,

    The quizlet idea is a good one: another idea is to find a group of native English speakers in your area (if possible). Nothing can replace the vocabulary advantage from conversation with native speakers!

    Even conversing on forums like this will enhance your vocabulary!

      Agreed, leahlefler. 

      And earnings33, keep at it and don't get discouraged.  It takes a long time to become fluent in another language.  Don't expect results overnight.

      Voxopop is a VERY cool application.

          Meetup.com is good for that as well. I found a French group that way for my own practise(not spamming, it's actually awesome). Continual use is really the best way to enhance your vocabulary.

          Another thing you could do is to write out sentences or short stories in English using your new words. Pick 5 or 10 and makes sure you use them all within 2 pages.

          Good luck!

    I think exposing yourself to more English language based media such as movies, TV shows and music will help you master the language.  English is my second language and as a child, I remember watching Saturday morning cartoons and this actually helped me build my skills.  When I was studying Spanish, I watched Mexican soap operas. 
    Language acquisition is more than just learning from textbooks.  It also involves absorbing the culture of that language.

    When I saw the misspelled topic on this thread, I expected the worst.

    Specifically, a bunch of posters ripping the OP apart.

    It was very nice to see otherwise.

    Looks like the HP forums are becoming a kinder, gentler place again. smile
