Avoid Translating

When you come across a new word avoid translating it into your native language straight away.

It is tempting to do so, but it is easy to mistranslate words and it will slow down your progress eventually, as your brain will wait for the translation rather than thinking about it.  Even worse, bad translation might lead into embarrassing mistakes.

Make your brain work, and use Google translate as a last resort.
