How to Write good Writing in EnglishWriting good English
Writing in English like a mother tongue
The primary goal of this blogs is to improve the quality of speech in German, but in fact I am spending a great deal of my free day producing text for my people. These are some facts about me and the letter in English: I have been a regular contributor to IT client supports (continuous emailing), participated in some on-line researches ( "content creation" - posts, videoscripts ) and wrote regular posts for this newlog.
When I really focus on it, I can make an essay with 1000 words in about an hours time. Obviously pace is not an indicator of the fluency and nativity of writing, but the point is - I am writing as if I were talking, and that is part of the recipe for becoming a good author.
Some years ago I was part of an Internet-based public relations effort for an English-speaking public and in the course of a few years, NONE indicated that the author of the contents could be a stranger - even if my English was not as it is.
So the point I'm trying to make here is that it' s simpler to type like a mother tongue Brit! Hint #1: Learning to type as if you were talking! As we are foreign nationals, there is no need to be embarrassed if we are not able to speak fluently and mother tongue Englishs.
To achieve your aim of flowing communication, the first important thing to do is to put all your emotion aside and read the following counsel ten readings until it bangs home: Speaking is casual, English is the more formally expressed form and contains more vocabulary; when you speak, grammar forms can be made so simple that the play you' re playing looks as if it was composed by a kid; you have been teaching me to type in a demanding, smart way at work - how dare you tell me that typing can be equated with talking!
Well, first of all, who says I give advices to would-be authors and editors? I give useful hints for the general international spokesperson who wants to know how to type more quickly, effectively and in their mother tongue in business communication, in their studies and perhaps on their own blogs.
There is nothing more incidental than this kind of typing, so you just have to realise that there is a big distinction between what you were made to believe by your instructor and the actual one. Having just read a few message posts, you'll find that what you' re creating for a large audience is made up of plain, easy-to-understand speech and no one will care if it is juvenile or whatever!
By the end of the morning, in reality, nobody is interested in how demanding the speech used in the play is, it is the READABILITY that counts, I think nobody can argue that it is much simpler to write something in plain speech and plain phrases than a play that contains many special words and expressiv.
Hint #2: Find out how to use online tools to work on your work! I' m using Google all the while I' m posting posts for this blogs, and I strongly suggest that you get used to it! I would like you to try to try to comprehend another important aspect of achieving a mother tongue approach to written work: the language:
It really means that you have to start writing quickly without much thought and then go back to what you wrote and look for shortcomings, errors and things that could be said differently to make it sounder. It is very efficient because we all know much more than we can say to a foreigner, and while we may say or spell unpleasant phrases, we would intuitively have the feeling that when we hear or hear it, it just doesn't work.
It is what I call "gut feeling", I always depend on it when I speak or even when I am at it! Obviously we will revise the contents as we type, because when we do, we have more space to decide what we will say than when we speak.
You only have to admit your errors during a call because there is no going back and correction (you have to feel 100% at ease with your errors, because it is important that you can talk free, even if with some imperfections), but when you are writing, you have the benefit of being able to go back and make changes.
There are a few things you should be reading that will help you understanding the whole process: At first this may seem like a stereotype, but the same goes for all the good and easy advices in this world! I' m not bullshitting you - you have to have a project before you begin to write something that means you have to know exactly what you want to say.
but you know why I spent my whole day looking at an empty display that couldn't spell a word? Just because I didn't have a CLEAR IDEA of what I wanted to do! Because you know the subject of an essay or have a general idea of what you want to post in an email, that doesn't mean you can just begin to post, and phrases will appear on the computer or on a sheet of hard copy, in fact, but I just assume that most of us nowadays use electronics to do it!
To give you an impression of what it means, we will take this item as an example. I had the general conception of what I wanted to talk about before I began working on it; I had the title and a general comprehension of the issues I wanted to work on.
But I couldn't just begin to type fluently and coherently because there were no fixed rules, no blueprints and no arsenal! It would be the same as an unscheduled get-together to complete this story from the ground up without prior scheduling. So, I brainstormed a few moments and finally I came up with the treetree basics to be covered in this post.
When I take a teabreak, the entire amount of material needed to write this item is just over an hours and a fourth. That'?s not too hard for a 1500-word story. What do you think? Had I not honed the 3 major signatures of the paper, I would have struggled for day after day with what my previous experiences tell me, so it's all about showing how efficient such easy it is.
Dear aliens, please comprehend that - just because everything you want to say or type is in your mind does not mean that it comes out well-designed! You' ve got to give it a shape by setting the key points and only then can you complete the typing assignment - or give a consistent response if it's a question of speaker-sound!
Remember also that you have to devote a great deal of your free day to continuous typing in order to reach a mother -tongue proficiency in your element. By following the 3 hints I have given you in this paper alone, you will not become an Englishman in your mother tongue over night. You' ll find out why it is so important to study idiom and how it will help you to speak better!
P.S.S. Are you serious about your speaking Englishl?
