If you are struggling to learn the difference between words like "lever" and "lid," or don't know how to properly pronounce "hertz," it may be best for you to take a basic vocabulary course. The trick is limiting yourself. Find out what types of basic vocabulary words that are most likely to come up in conversation, then spend time familiarizing yourself with them. Below are some very common types of basic vocab that might get you started on your journey.

Verb: To Verb is to do or treat something in a particular way. You can use it almost any time you see the letter "v" in a word.
An example is: "I like to surf." (verb=to surf)
Noun: A noun is what you call a person, place, thing, idea, emotion, animal name, etc.
Nouns have two special forms called possessive pronouns and subject pronouns. Possessive pronouns are created by adding apostrophes and s to the end of a noun or pronoun. Subject pronouns are words that tell who or what is doing something in a sentence. For example: "The dog bit him. "Him" is a subject pronoun. Pronouns are words that take the place of a noun or a noun phrase.

Pronoun: A Pronoun is a word used in place of a noun or a noun phrase. You can use them in any sentence when you don't really want to state the entire thing because it's too long, complicated, or awkward. In other words, pronouns take the place of other nouns and make phrasing easier to understand. Common examples include I/me, he/him, she/her, etc. For example: "I told her." The word "her" replaces the name of a girl that you may have spoken to earlier in the conversation.

Conjunction: A Conjunction is a word that connects two independent clauses. Common conjunctions are "and," "or," and "but." It can may take one or more words to make a sentence, like the following:
Ex: Is John sick? If he is, I'm not! (Conjunction)
Ex: If John is sick, I'm not. (Independent clause + Conjunction)
Adverbs are words that are used to create superlative adjectives for adjectives. It can be used with many different types of adjectives including color, time, degree, size, etc. Adverbs are also great at creating comparisons between two things. For example: "This is the prettiest dress I have ever seen."

Adjective: An adjective is a word used to describe a noun or a noun phrase. In other words, it describes the noun. Adjectives are placed before a noun or a noun phrase. For example: "A beautiful dress."
Adjunct: An adverb that is used in place of another adverb to form a comparative adjective, for example:
Ex: He was running fast today. (comparative)
Ex: He was running faster today than yesterday. (adjunct)
