الكلمات المربكة فى اللغة الانجليزية

from Kenneth Beare
كتبها كينيث بيير

English vocabulary can cause a lot of confusion. One of the first problems is words that many sound the same i.e. 'to, too, two' or 'band, banned'. Next, there are words that sound similar i.e. 'sick, seek' or 'hit, heat'. There are also a number of false friends such as 'actual - attualmente' in Italian. There are a number of words that have similar spellings but different meanings. Finally, there are many words that have similar meanings and can be easily exchanged. This lesson focuses on some of the most important confusing vocabulary.
