    people into thinking English is my native language. But I notice that my vocabulary is fairly limited. I often fall back to the same expressions and don't use a lot of synonyms in English. In Dutch I'm a bit better, but feel like I'm repeating myself a lot there as well. Maybe...

    I Enjoy Learning New Words ...

    I enjoy learning new words and learning how and when to use them. I am a rare breed as I hardly ever swear, so new words come in very handy to express myself. I think that people who swear with every second word, have a very limited vocabulary.
