Hey everyone, my name is @SumatraNate. In this guest post, I will be sharing four new Words of the Week!
Let’s LEAP right in – Learn, Encourage, Acknowledge, and Practice.
We had a great group of words this week. If you have not had a chance to review our most recent words, I am sharing their meanings below:
- Tangible (adjective) - can be touched
- Plaudit (noun) - statement giving strong praise
- Reprehensible (adjective) – shameful or very bad
- Tardy (adjective) – slow or late
To read example sentences, be sure to check out @Definitions on D.Buzz, where I share new a word four days a week – Monday through Thursday.

My encouragement for the week is: Practice! Practice! Practice!
When I taught English while living overseas, a lot of people ask me how they could improve their English skills. I always responded, “Practice! Practice! Practice!’ No one ever liked that answer.
Learning another language is hard work. It takes time and effort. I cannot promise you what you will ever sound like a native speaker, but I can promise you will never improve unless you practice.
Practice listening and speaking every day!
I want to acknowledge @stefano.massari and @dmhafiz for writing some great example sentences this week. I really appreciate both of you taking what you have learned and applying it. Great job!
I believe it is important to acknowledge people's efforts and improvement. How do I plan to do that?
- I want to showcase English learners who are practicing, improving, and becoming better communicators. I hope that I will be able to add your name here soon.
- I will be rewarding quality, authentic engagement with ENGAGE tokens.
It is time to practice.
Write 1 or 2 sentences using all of this week’s words. There will be a special surprise for the person who writes the best sentence.
Thanks for stopping by and letting a part of of your English journey!
More About SumatraNate:
I am a native English speaker from the United States who has a passion for helping people become good communicators. While living in Indonesia, I taught conversational English.
Trust me! I understand how hard it is to learn a new language. I have experience learning a new language and interacting with people who are learning a new language.
Communication is an important part of being human. Since it impacts our everyday lives, we need to understand the goal of communication. I believe that the goal of communication is to “hear and be heard.”
- “hear” = carefully listening to what other people say
- ”be heard” = speaking in such a way that people understand our message
The ultimate goal is to understand one another.
Over and out.
