Perhaps none of the above will mean anything to you. It may be totally or mostly inaccessible to you. With luck you have a friend who has led you here and who will help you through to mastery of the use of simple English

You will need two books. They will last you for most of your life. The first is a dictionary. It matters little which one is chosen. The Oxford Dictionary is a good standard as is Chambers. In the U.S.A. it may be that Webster's Dictionary will be your choice. For Australians the MacQuarie is more than satisfactory. Dictionaries come in all sizes and some editions are in multiple volumes. It is suggested that you get the biggest single volume that you can afford. The second book is Roget's Thesaurus. If you are ever "stuck for a word" this book will help. It's value will become more obvious as you progress.

Throughout the site there will be links to other useful sites. Under the "Resources" tab there will be a list of sites under various headings which may or may not have been mentioned previously under specific headings. As you become more proficient you will be able to choose the sites which you find appealing or which you think will suit and best assist you. The thing to do now is to start. As you move forward you will be able to make choices informed by your new knowledge. Choices that will take you to whatever level you aspire in the use of the English language, in your career and in your life in general.
