My New Year’s resolution for 2011 is to improve my English. I find I am using the same tired old words and phrases to communicate; boring, general words, like cool to describe anything positive and weird to describe anything unusual. There is a myriad of wonderful and often amusing words I could be using instead, so I’ve created two lists of words I aim to use more or less in 2011. Here are a few:
Some of the words I want to use more are rather old, whilst some I am ditching are more modern. I certainly love learning new words but some of these catch-all words may kill off other, less well-known ones and I would hate that to happen. Which words would you like to use more or less this year?
