Synonyms of "Suppose" and their differences

I guess - is less formal language usually, it means the same but you are emphasising that you don't know for sure.

I think - is the same but maybe shows more sureity or confidence than the other two

Yeah, I think I can do that. Come back in half an hour.

I suppose I can do that. Though, I haven't done this before.

Q: What is the difference between suppose and presume ?
A: Glad to help, wish I could say the same thing about my progress in Japanese. But I'm so new at it that I wouldn't even be able to understand the easiest of the children's books. However on that note I would say the best way to help with your studying english at this point is get some english novels and an english dictionary. Start reading the novel and when you come across an unfamiliar word, that's when the dictionary comes in handy. Brandon Sanderson and Robert Jordan both are excellent authors to start with for epic fantasy. And J.R.R Tolkien's hobbit and lord of the ring trilogy are great for more advanced reading.
