    Read books a lot and when you see a word that's exotic or you're unsure of, look it up in a dictionary

    Read books gradually expanding in difficulty until you're confident. If you find a word you don't know go to www.dictionary.com or look it up in a home dictionary.

    When you're writing an essay on Microsoft Word or any other typing package, highlight the cliché word you want to change; right-click and choose synonyms -- but look the alternative word in the dictionary first.

    Hope this helps, if your Word processing package does not have the 'synonyms' feature, you can always go to an online thesaurus, preferably from dictionary.com

    Good luck .

    It's great! :p: For words you don't understand, you may have to have a dictionary open as well though, as the definitions it gives aren't always incredibly accurate.
    absolutely love it!


    thanks,

    Word of the day. Just pick a new word from the dictionary and try to use it in at least one sentence.
