Start writing on daily basis.

Develop a habit to write on a daily basis. Ignore the thought that what should I write, or how shall I write. Just pick up a pen and start colouring it with the black ink, you can write about what you see around you, what you hear around you, or just start making up a story and start writing to develop a habit for writing. You could also start commenting on the Facebook post that you like or even commenting on different blog posts that interest you. It would be a good start to develop a habit for writing.

Use online resources to improve your grammar.

Learning grammar is certainly a pain, but it’s not necessary to know all about grammar. Visiting online websites which teach grammar would help you to clear your doubts about grammar. You can visit our English Grammar lessons on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/learnexmumbai) and access free English grammar lessons to improve your English grammar skills.

Improve your vocabulary & spellings

To express yourself successfully in writing, you need a lot of words. Building good vocabulary is the key to developing good writing skills. You can express yourself well, if your vocabulary is great. Visit our YouTube channel – Daily Video Vocabulary ( http://www.youtube.com/letstalkpodcast) to learn a new word every day. Here, you will learn new words, what do they mean and how to use them in your conversation.

Improve your reading skills.

To write better you certainly need to read better, they are interrelated. Reading articles from Newspaper and magazines that interest you, is a great tool to improve your reading skills. Reading articles would expose you to different writing styles, further improving your writing skills. You would also come across new words which would further build your vocabulary.

Have a friend to edit your writing.

It’s always better to have someone to correct your writing, it’s no point writing endlessly without someone reviewing it. Get hold of someone who is good with the language, can correct you with grammar and spellings and sentence construction.

We hope this video on Improving your writing skills has definitely worked for you. Follow these tips religiously and you would certainly see a change in your style of writing. Don’t forget to subscribe to our channel SKILLOPEDAI – The place to learn skills for the real world.

Your writing is one of the aspects of the English language you’ll be tested on – so as the exam approaches make sure you know what to do.

Watch this video to find out six top tips to help you in your writing exam. Then visit our website and test your understanding in our quiz: http://www.bbc.co.uk/learningenglish/english/course/english-you-need/unit-15/session-1

Rob
Your writing is one of the aspects of the English language you’ll be tested on – so as the exam approaches make sure you know what to do. Listen to our top tips to help you on your way!

Well before the exam day, familiarise yourself with the structure of the writing test – do plenty of practice tests, preferably in timed conditions. This will help you look at the timing and the type of writing you’re expected to produce.

But don’t just do them – get feedback on your writing and act on it so that you learn from it. Try to rewrite your work based on this feedback. Once you’re in the real exam, keep calm! This is examiner, Mark Shea’s advice…

Mark Shea, Examiner
Doing an exam successfully is to a large extent a question of good time management. If you’ve done practice exams before, you should have a good idea of how long each part should take you, and when you have to hurry.

Rob
So manage your time – know how long you have for each question. Now, read each question carefully – paying particular attention to instruction verbs such as discuss, examine, compare, contrast.

Next, make a plan before you start writing – you could possibly write down all your ideas and arguments and plan how to use these in your writing. Now it’s time to start writing – as you write, don’t forget to keep the appropriate structure in mind and when you’ve finished, make sure you read what you’ve written and correct any mistakes you’ve made – and that you’ve actually answered the question!

Remember the feedback you received for your practice papers and make sure you’ve acted on this in the real exam. Follow these tips and hopefully everything will go smoothly.

Good luck!

The paragraph is the most important unit of a well-written essay. The paragraph has a specific structure and standards that make it effective and enjoyable to read. In this writing lesson we will look at how to construct good paragraphs and improve writing with better flow and clarity. After the lesson, take the quiz: https://www.engvid.com/writing-skills-paragraph/

TRANSCRIPT

Hi, welcome again to www.engvid.com. I’m Adam. Today’s lesson is about the paragraph. It’s a writing lesson, and I want to show people what a paragraph is and how to construct one, what to do, what not to do so you can write very clear, very tight paragraphs. This is especially important for IELTS, TOEFL, SAT students but everybody has to follow the exact same rules. Now before I even begin, I must say that I’m talking mostly about academic writing or even business writing. Creative writing like novels or short stories, anything fiction, you can do anything you want. Only always remember: somebody has to read what you wrote so it has to be clear. But academic essays, for example, certain rules you have to follow; you have to be very careful about them. So let’s begin.

In terms of like the actual way a paragraph looks: you have to indent or skip a line. So let me just make sure you understand what an indent is. This is an indent, the first line a little bit pushed in or you can make sure you skip a line between paragraphs. But don’t do both. If you skip a line, don’t indent. Okay? That’s the main thing.

Now, that’s in terms of the way it looks. In terms of content — and this, I can’t stress this enough — very, very, very important: one central idea in one paragraph. Okay? I’ve seen many people, I’ve seen many essays where you start a paragraph talking about one thing, and then you go off on a tangent and talk about something completely unrelated. So for example: if you start a paragraph and you’re talking about apples, continue to talk about apples. If you go to oranges, that’s maybe okay because you’re still talking about fruit. But if you start with apples, go to oranges, go to bananas, and then end up with monkeys in space there’s a bit of a problem; the reader has no idea what you’re talking about. One paragraph, one central idea.

Now, make sure that you tell the reader what this central idea is. This is your thesis statement. Okay? It’s a very general sentence. All it does is introduce the topic of the paragraph, nothing else. All the details comes after. So speaking of details, we’ll talk about details in detail, but all other ideas, all the other sentences, all your sentences with the details must directly relate back to the main idea. So let’s say here is your thesis statement; very general, every sentence after must relate back to that thesis statement. Okay? You can’t go off to another idea. Everything must support this, must talk about the same topic. Very important. Okay?

How long should your paragraph be? Technically, a paragraph could be one sentence, but in an academic essay that rarely happens. But it could be any length you want, as long as you’re still on that one topic, as long as you still have things to write and things to say about that topic, say it. If you have four sentences, fine; if you have 10 sentences, also okay. Again, for IELTS, TOEFL, SAT students: four, five sentences should be your limit. You can’t be too long because you don’t have time and you’re going to start making mistakes.

So now, the details. Very important to have lots of details. Why is this topic important to your overall idea of your essay? Not only tell me what is the topic, what is the thesis statement of the paragraph, make sure you explain to me why this is important to the general idea of the essay. Give me your reasons. Now, why is it important? And then reasons, why you think what you’re saying supports this idea. Examples, always use examples because giving me the reasons is okay; examples make me see exactly what you’re trying to say. Very easy for me to understand what you’re trying to say.

Now, in terms of flow, in terms of the way the reader can approach the paragraph, you have to have bridges. What is, what do bridges mean? Basically, when you have one idea in this sentence, you must connect it to the next sentence, you must connect it to the next sentence. Every sentence must have a link to the next sentence. This creates flow, makes it much easier to read and understand, and it keeps you on the one topic.

Now, key terms. If you’re talking about something specific and you have to use a key term, use it as many times as you need to. Otherwise, avoid repetition. Try not to use the same word more than once in one paragraph. Okay? For example: if you’re using the word “moreover” in the paragraph, don’t use it, don’t use “moreover” again — use “in addition to”, use “furthermore”, “another”, etc. Try to avoid using one word more than once, especially in the same paragraph.
