One of the hardest parts of learning a second language is telling the difference between similar words. Words may sound almost the same or look almost the same, but have very different meanings. Mistaking words on the TOEFL can hurt your score. This is why Lucas did a really helpful post on some common words that sound the same and have close spellings.
Lucas focused on the word pairs discrete/discrete, principal/principle, proceed/precede. I’ve made a set of comic strips below to help you understand these words and remember the differences between them. Enjoy!
