    Oct 4 2013: This is very simple. To be good at a language you have to use it; but not necessarily with someone else. Apply it to your day to day life. When you see a tree, tell yourself that it's a tree in English. You don't have to amass a huge vocabulary to translate something; you merely have to know what the simple words mean.

    Good luck!
