Bridging into the Native English Language World

VocabularyShop can bring you into the native English language world if your native language is not English, like Spanish, Chinese, or Arabic.  You may use your native language as a tool to learn English at the beginning.  But you have to use English to learn English and stop translating if you want to achieve higher proficiency.

You can connect to a bilingual online dictionary and use your native language for your notes.  This way you create a bilingual learning environment.  As your vocabulary grows, your dependency on your native language will fade away gradually.  Eventually, you will become as proficient as native English speakers.

Whatever your can do or dream you can do, begin it.  Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it.
