Translating from Indonesian language to English language is no walk in the park. It requires not only good grammar skills, but also the knowledge of a great number of vocabulary.
However, English vocabulary can be tricky. When two words have similar spelling, people may mistake one for the other, even though they have different meanings. People also often make mistakes with synonyms, because even though some words may have similar meanings, they are not always interchangeable depending on the context.
With this issue in mind, we would like to share with you these “tricky” similar words to pay attention to. We hope that this can help increase your English vocabulary and improve your translation skills.
We hope these will be helpful to you. Look out for our next English Today blog post, and follow @mavgram for mini reminders on Instagram!
