A Few Tips To Improve English Writing Skills

When looking for ways to improve your English writing skills, it is entirely up to you to choose the best method. Your current professional and personal situation, writing skills level, how much time and energy you can devote to learning, etc., all of this will affect decision-making.

For example, if your native language is not English and you are just starting to learn to write English, the best choice is one of the many excellent courses dedicated to learning English as a foreign language. Make sure the tutor or school you choose is accredited (usually they are TEFL accredited – this means you are teaching English as a foreign language). Retailers and online stores also offer many great video and audio courses. A quick internet search should immediately put you on the right track.

However, there is one general rule that is correct regardless of level or situation, and that is, the best way to learn to write is to read. Read as many styles, formats or genres you want to explore. Reading can not only improve vocabulary and comprehension but also give you a ‘writer’s feel’. It increases your awareness of style conventions, makes grammar more natural and shows you what works, and most importantly, what works.

If you want to improve your business English level, look for business documents on the internet: annual reports, open letters, mission statements, business plans. There are actually thousands of them. Look for common mistakes in Business English, and you will quickly learn how to avoid them.

Likewise, if you want to improve your technical writing skills, consult the technical documentation. Stay tuned for news in your chosen field, especially in terms of terminology – new terms and acronyms abound.

If you are having trouble writing academic essays or essays, many universities, colleges, and other academic institutions offer weekend courses, part-time and short academic writing courses. There are also online resources devoted to the ins and outs of academic writing. If you can afford it, hire a text editor who specializes in this writing style and is happy to provide you with comprehensive feedback.

If you are a professional creative writer, it is a top priority to improve your English writing skills. Fortunately, there are many ways for professional storytellers, including writing circles and clubs, creative writing courses, competitions that provide editor feedback, interacting with editors, online forums, seminars, and workshops.
