I recently read a WikiHow article, How to Be a Hard Worker, where I encountered the following usage of the verb "improve":
"Maximize potential and improve weaknesses." —WikiHow
Is the phrase "improve weaknesses" grammatical? If yes, then I have a doubt, as it says to improve (making it even more better) weaknesses. Doesn't it mean to further enhance the weaknesses?
The verb "improve" generally means to make or cause to make something better.
If I use this verb (improve) in the following conversation, what would be your comments and answers?
Henry: Hi John, how are you and how is your health?
John: I'm Fine. My health improved much as compared to the previous year. [here the John's health improved a lot, which was already little improved in the previous year].
So I think using "improve weaknesses" mean to enhance it further.
