Why not Embellish your English?

Read these brief lines:

Yesterday, I was in a very noisy street, looking at a very old book in a very old-fashioned bookshop, when, sudenly, a very pretty girl walked in the shop very quickly but very quietly; she looked very shy and very serious, but when she looked at me, she gave me a very perfect and very shiny smile.”

Is this paragraph gramatically correct? Yes, it is. Does it sound natural? No, it does not. So, what is the issue? Sometimes (most of the times) it is not enough to have a good and precise knowledge of the English Grammar if you want to sound natural and fluent, you need to embellish your English like this:

Yesterday, I was in a deafening street, looking at an ancient book in an archaic bookshop, when, sudenly, a beautiful girl walked in the shop rapidly but hushedly; she looked timid and grave, but when she looked at me, she gave me a flawless and gleaming smile.”

So, what can you do to enrich your English, other than obviously study English? Read. Don’t be afraid of that; at first, you will understand, perhaps, a dozen words out of a hundred; but, slowly but surely, you will see how your vocabulary gets wider and richer.
