Soraia is an English student. Last Friday, the teacher gave a homework assignment, which was to write an essay responding the question If you could do anything in life, what would you do?
Soraia really liked the topic of the essay. She was really excited to finally write about her secret desires and wishes.

So, what is it that you can do to improve your writing skills?
Here are my top 4 tips on how to improve your writing skills!
1. Start writing a diary in English!
As you can see, my first tip is to write a diary in English.
This can be very helpful because it will give you a chance to work on your everyday use of English language.
Think of what happened to you each day and then write it down in a notebook.
That way you will practice using English while describing everyday situations.
2. Write a story in your native language and then try to re-write it in English.
By this, I don’t mean that you need to translate everything that you wrote in your native language.
I want you to make up a story and then try to write it in English. Try to think of many different ways how to tell in English what you wrote in your native language.
This is a great exercise because it gives you a chance to practice thinking in English.
3. Read an article and try to write a summary of it.
This is a great exercise because it helps you with both your writing and reading skills.
Find an article that you like and then read it. While reading it, try to focus on the most important things mentioned in the article.
After finishing reading the article, write down the most important things. Now that you have done that, write a short summary of the article.
This means that you need to write in your own words the most important things the author of the article said.
Try to practice this often and soon you will see that your writing skills are successfully improving!
4. Find a partner who will read your writings and correct your mistakes.
If you are not aware of the mistakes that you do, you won’t be able to improve your writing skills.
Therefore, find someone who knows English very well and then practice with them.
Pick one of my tips and write something, and then give it to someone who can tell you if you made a mistake and how to correct it.
It is always great to have a feedback!
