For us who speak English (only) as second language, composing sentences in good English would be quite a problem. Yet I believe that there are no reasons to give up since we have actually equipped with a set of sufficient tool. What does the tool consist of?

1. The Red and Green warning
We should have aware that Microsoft Word performs red zigzag line each time we mistype and green zigzag line each any grammatical mistakes occurs. Make notice to those suggestions, although the final decision is always right in your hands. Before pay attention to any suggestion, please make sure that the language setting has set properly. You can check or reset it by clicking “Tools-language-set language” and choose which English you prefer to.
2. Deciding a precise term
Do you have a word but still feel unsure whether the word does not fit the context or not? Prove your intuition by putting the cursor on the word and right-click it. Spot the “synonym” option, and voila ... unless your term is very specific, some options are available right there. Don’t forget to ensure that your original word is in singular form.
Using thesaurus is yet another reliable way.
I know, this point is very much an old strategy, but what else can I say? However we can use some cool dictionaries to assist us. I’d suggest urbandictionary.com and Dreams Dictionary (I have blogged it here) for quick answer. Otherwise, you can use an application like Pocket Oxford Dictionary, which you can download here.
