If we think that improving our language skill can enhance our life quality, learning English is no longer a torture. Instead, it can be a lot of fun.
Building our vocabulary is extremely important. Otherwise, it is almost impossible to understand other's talk. For instance, we need to know store's names as many as possible.
Here are some store names: Home Depot, Office Depot, Toys Depot. I am not sure all the new immigrants can pronunciate "Depot" correctly.
The word "depot" seems to originate from French, so the last letter "t" is dumb. In passing, I note that the word "restaurant" is a French word.
