Now it is not important to know the exact meaning of every
word, only to understand the sentences. Try to find the most
important "keywords" and don't spend much time on
any word you don't understand. (Maybe they are not so important.)
For unknown words you can use the glossary or the "double-click"
dictionary, but first always try to find out the meaning of
a word from its context.
Try to tell or write the essence of the article using your
own vocabulary (the words you already know). Make very simple
sentences. If it helps you, first create the sentences in
your native language.
look up a word, double click on any word or mark more than
one word with the cursor, then click on "Definition".
