Tips to Write with Good Grammar

November 17, 2017


Hi guys!

Writing... must be tiring, right?

Especially when we reread the sentences and found some minor mistakes that make us give up and want start a blank page again because we are grammar maniac. However, not all of the time we manage to detect grammatical errors in our writing because we are human.

...but, it's not an excuse. Good news, we can fix it!

First, if you're an intermediate or beginner English user. You may use a simpler word in your writing. The one that you are more familiar. Have a translator site on the new tab or dictionary on your side. Don't feel down if you are not that good, at least you are trying to not making mistake and keep learning.

Short of time to flip the dictionary pages?

Well, you can plug in some grammar checker on your browser. I always recommend you to set Grammarly as your browser extension. Why? Because it's very easy to detect your errors and immediately suggest you the right spelling and sentence structure.

Reread you sentences again and again until you feel it's ready to go. If you still doubt it, seek for some bits of help from your acquaintances to check it for you. Different eyes see things in a different way. Don't underestimate your buddy.

Keep yourself settle down and chill. Don't rush when you are writing, otherwise, you are making trash. Your grammar will be messed up and need time to fix it. It's a waste of time. Try to write it slowly and put some passion on it. It helps to beautify your sentence.

Call it a day and continue it next time.

As mentioned above, don't rush. If you feel so numb and already about to die, go and have some rest, make yourself a cup of mild coffee. Who knows some new ideas will pop up in your mind while sipping your drink. Additionally, you will be more focus after some rest, thus more errors will be detected.

Improve your speaking skill because it's obviously related to writing skill. Other than listening to English songs and watching English movies, try some new things on the internet such as having an online class through the Skype to improve your speaking skill. I would suggest Lingostan for this. It provides you the opportunities to speak and learn with the native speaker in your free time. It's so convenient.

So are you still thinking that writing with a good grammar really needs a professional writing skill? As long as you focus on what you are writing and have a peaceful mind, you are good to go.

...and don't forget to learn from your mistakes. Improve yourself time to time is the best way to success.

Goodluck.
Amer

    1. Copy artikel kita tu dalam grammaly dan klik check, otomatik akan ada satu artikel baru yang dicadangkan oleh Grammarly. Artikel yang betul. Tapi masih juga ada kesilapan dari segi grammar walaupun dah masuk software ini. Yang ni memang kena betul-betul expert bahasa inggeris.
      Saya selalu masuk grammarly, leaps tu saya akan hantar kepada sorang cikgu english pula untuk double check. Baru saya akan hantar kepada mana-mana penerbit journal.
      So, walaupun dah ada grammarly, kita tetap perlukan khidmat proofreader.

    2. Actually if kita dah set as extension, dia akan automatik check kita punya writing. No worry, insyaAllah amer akan buat new entry how to set it as the extension.

      And it's true, if kita tulis sesuatu yang serious and need to be published to the public, memang amer suggestkan utk hantar for proofreading dulu sebab grammarly ni just check simple grammar mistake and unfortunately other premium features kena bayar hhehehe

    1. Samalah dengan saya kak Siqah. Memang tak berani lagi nak tulis dalm bahasa inggeris. senang tulis dalm bahasa aje sebab lebih selesa nak menulis dan boleh tulis terus tanpa fikir perkataan yang sesuai. hahah.. kalau selang seli dengan english tu mampu lagi.
