    It would be tough to help you with specific examples unless you showed us something you would like for us to make suggestions about. 

    That said, the best way to learn how to write (short of writing) is to read what others write.  That is how you can pick up good ideas on what certain things mean within a specific context, and you can gain a better understanding of the English language.  I would further suggest that you read with a dictionary on hand so you can look up a word you don't understand.

    A Roget's Thesaurus is good for finding shorter words that mean the same as the ones you do know.  Good luck.  I have the greatest respect for anyone trying to write *better* in a language not their own.  I have enough trouble just writing in my native language! cool

    Good to see you back again. There is no clear cut rule to this. to improve any language skill you need practice. Try to use English as much as possible. Whenever you coma across any new word, make sure to find out its meaning and use it yourself. More you do this more you become fluent. We generally have a habit to ignore a word that we do not understand, do not do that. It is important to note that it is not the vocabulary list that will help you make sentences shorter but the grammar.

    Keep trying, it will take time but it will definitely improve. Good luck

    'Shortening' sentences has much less to do with lexicon than syntax.

    I've found that the best way to learn a language is to practice with it. Have you considered language exchange? That way you can get help with English from a native English speaker while helping them learn your native language.

    A great site is, it's 100% free and allows you to sign up with what language(s) you speak as well as which you would like to learn and your current proficiency. Once you've found people to talk to, you can choose whether to talk to them through e-mail, instant messaging, Skype, or telephone. Language exchange REALLY helped me improve my Spanish, I hope it might help you with English too smile.

    Language exchange is good for listening skills and oral communication, but won't do much for writing skills.

      When it's online, I've found that it does more for writing skills than oral or listening. Mainly this is because we have to go out of our way to set up voice chats for oral and listening, but through letter-writing and instant messaging, the text is immediately available and therefore tends to get practiced more. I guess it all just depends on what you make out of it smile.

    Language exchange is generally in person and generally involves one or both parties who are untrained in language teaching.

    Ah, I suppose that all depends on the area. Perhaps I should qualify language exchange. The area I'm in right now is so isolated that everyone assumes that by "language exchange" you mean online language exchange. Thus, the recommended website for searching out language exchange partners.
