Writing Skill


Get the most out of your dictionary by understanding how to use it well. You can use your dictionary to find words, for meaning, for pronunciation, to check your spelling and to understand explanations.

Copy out short passages of English text from newspapers, magazines or books.

Try dictation exercises. You can do this online or get friends to read out text for you to write and then check your writing - concentrate on spelling and punctuation.

There are many ESL forums on the net, find one about your interests or hobbies. Apologise if you think you have made any mistakes and politely ask for feedback.

Find English speaking pen friends:-

1. Just like a new baby, we learn a language slowly. First we listen, then we speak, then we read and finally, write.
2. Listen, speak, write and most of all, THINK in ENGLISH.
How: joining and posting in forums, especially in this website is very educational and informative.
3. Make friends with somebody who is an ESL learner or somebody who can study and practise with you with the language.
4. Read English stories and articles.
5. Write down new words, start a vocabulary notebook.
6. Keep an English diary to practise writing sentences in English.
7. Visit an English speaking country (if you can afford it, why not), live, listen and speak with native speakers.
