Trek is focused on increasing your output and using a dictionary as you answer problems is perfectly fine.
Think of this as your chance to finally use your stored up English knowledge on a daily basis.
The first problem will arrive on the day you register (and your payment is confirmed).
If you register on a Saturday or Sunday, the first problem will arrive on the following Monday.
