How to use the writing exchange correctly?
For me, essay writing is also quite a complicated and time-consuming process. And it doesn't matter the type of paper I have to write, the theme and so on, I always have some troubles. And the advice, which is based on my own experience, is to read similar papers. You can find some samples online and it always helps me to complete my work. Hope this will help you too! https://assignbuster.com/free-essays/ Good luck!
Then I think you are using the writing exchange in the correct way. Well done. But like others have commented here, don't make it your only way of practicing if you want to get good at writing.
The writing exchange is a tool that allows writers to share their work with others. It’s a great way to get feedback on your work and help you improve.
I've personally just been using it to try and get more output. I have no idea how others use it...
What I'm doing is I'll think of something I want to write about...Maybe an interesting trip or day. I'll TRY to write something in some form using words I know. If I don't know the words or how to structure a sentence I'll use deepl or google translate to help me come up with a sentence. If I'm not sure of the sentence I created (if I formed it wholly from my own knowledge) then I'll put my native language form into deepl or google translate and see what it spits out and how it compares. I may then adjust what I wrote (or not).
So I work it out best I can. Then I post it on the exchange for feedback. That way one can see how a native or proficient speaker might formulate the sentence. In many languages there are special ways of saying things that may not really make sense in your own native language as a direct translation so it's important to become acquainted with these phrases. Sometimes Deepl or google translate will get these correct, but sometimes not.
I don't know if this is the best way to work on this, but I think it should help me get acquainted with words and phrases that I can use in my active vocabulary on topics that relate to ME. Ones that I might use if someone was asking me questions about my day, or a trip or something that has happened to me.
Now, if I just had more time to actually do this...
To be honest, the writing exchange here is just a sort of practice that you do. I take it that way. You focus on what you can and you see some mistake here and there.
When you want to seriously practice writing you need to upgrade to something a bit different, like a tutor or something. Where you have a teacher that not only correct your text but also give you some feedback on why you did those mistakes.
The reason is that for really learning something from the exchange it would be useful to have some written feedback on the mistakes we make.
At least 1 feedback would be useful so that you can learn grammar and rules by every correction. But it's done for free so it's a blessing that people dedicate time for it.
