Sometimes it happens that when you’re reading you come across a word or phrase which doesn’t make sense. You consult Google Translate and now the only sense it makes is nonsense! What to do?
First of all, if you’re reading for pleasure, don’t worry about every strange word you meet as long as you can get the general meaning of the sentence or paragraph.
Secondly, if you’re really curious about a word or phrase, don’t reach out for the smartphone again. Instead, see if you can guess its meaning from context.
