- Read as much as possible: magazines, newspaper articles and blogs are a fun and interesting way to learn lots of new words & phrases. It’s also a great way to expand your knowledge on many different topics!
- Knowing some common fixed phrases and linking words, both formal and informal, may help you when you’re stuck.
- Use a thesaurus. Looking up synonyms (words with similar meaning) will help you avoid repetition and make your writing more impressive.
- Brighten up your written work by using phrasal verbs, idioms and colloquial language.
- Preplan and brainstorm. If you spend some time thinking about the subject, brainstorming ideas and associated words, then your writing will be more organized.
- Think about structure. Paragraphing is very important to put your ideas into order and make the writing easier to understand.
- Become a good speller. Incorrect spelling and frequent errors will change the meaning of your sentences and make it really difficult and unpleasant to read.
- Proofread and edit. This is a normal process in life for everyone and will dramatically improve your work.
- Ask someone for feedback. It’s great to get another person’s perspective, constructive criticism and take a step back from yourself. Sharing new ideas is a wonderful way to make changes to your writing.
- Write anything and everything about whatever YOU want and are interested in. From a short memo to a friend, a daily journal about your life to a discussion about globalization. Remember, practice makes perfect!
