English is not my native language, which I’m sure is too obvious for anyone reading my posts. I try to improve my language skills, but as a person born in times when one possessing colour tv was regarded a very rich man, my memory often no longer wants to cooperate with my willingness to learn by heart some new words. Id’like it to absorb new words like a sponge does with water, but it rarely work that way. What’s strange for me and at the same time interesting, I found that some groups of words are much more difficult for me to remember than the other. For example – words describing negative emotions and actions like e.g. indignant, insult, offend, they are rarely on my tongue when I want to use one of them, let alone use them correctly. I almost always mistake them. I remember I had once rare opportunity to speak with Englishman who told me ‘English is very easy language but extremely hard to master’. Year ago I resolved to write down in alphabetical order daily 3 to 5 words (of course in a ‘word’ file:) from books I read which I don’t know well and at the same time to repeat about 10 ‘neighbouring’ words to memorise them. Maybe it’s not very efficent way but for sure it’s better than nothing. When I see a word from my list which is very stubborn to not be learned by heart I select it with red colour. Once I’m sure I already know the word well it goes into black again. Somehow those ‘indignant, insult, offend’ words seem indeed to like red. They do everything to avoid returning into black. The words above insult me. Is that right?
