Why your English writing skill don’t improve in spite…

I really made a step forward on my writing level when I finally learned how to use correctly the spellchecker on my word processor.

When writing in English on my computer I used to write while at the same time the spellchecker corrected my spelling and grammatical errors. My mistakes where corrected while writing without any thinking from my part. As a result there was no improving on my writing skill.

Most of the people work like this. It’s easy and allows you to go faster when writing something. But in the other hand it doesn’t help and even damage your English writing skill progression.

Then…a big change has to be made…

What Do You Have To Do To Improve Your Writing Skill?

Every time you have to write something (personal /job…) you can use this opportunity to work and improve your English writing skill.
From now on whenever you open your word processor, you always have to:

  1. Switch your spellchecker OFF
  2. Write
  3. When you finish writing, try to check and correct as many errors (spelling or grammatical) as possible by yourself.
  4. Switch your spellchecker ON
  5. Look for the errors you didn’t find on your own (and your spellchecker did) and correct them.

At first it’s going to take more time but as a reward you are going to improve your writing skill.

You really don’t want to write your emails fifty-fifty with your spellchecker.
You want to write your emails 90% on your own then at the end your spellchecker helps you with the 10% left, warning you about the errors you didn’t find.

 

And Remember…

Why you don’t improve your English writing skill in spite of writing a lot_

How to learn English vocabulary in an easy and…

I started to learn English vocabulary by writing the words and its translation in a sheet of paper.
Then soon I had so many words and so much sheets of paper than I started to use an alphabet notebook.
I end up with a notebook full of hundreds of words that I wasn’t able to remember.
I still keep the notebook and even the bunch of papers but don’t check them anymore.
In my own experience it’s not a so good idea to learn vocabulary that way.

The best way to learn a new English word is when you directly link the word with the thing itself.

Increase Your English Vocabulary By Redecorating Your Life

To learn English words in a natural and easy way, I did something in the past that I still do nowadays and it’s quite funny and useful…

Just go around your house, office, car… and wherever you find a thing that you don’t know its name in English, you just check it in a dictionary and then write the name in a post and stick it on the thing itself.
It’s funny, easy and it’s going to help you to memorize the word.
When you have memorized a word you can remove the post.
Some posts are going to last for long. It depends on every word.

Places where you can apply this tactic:

    • Kitchen
    • Living room
    • Bedroom
    • WC
    • Car
    • Wardrobes
    • Cupboards
    • Desk

…among many others
