Writing Tips

  • Look at the question carefully (How many different ideas are there in the question? How many ideas do you have to write in your answer?)


  • Practise writing in three stages:

  1. plan what you want to write
  2. write your answer
  3. check your writing/answer


  • Check your work to see if it is: 

  1. organised (Have you used paragraphs? Does it have a  conclusion?)
  2. appropriate (Have you answered the question? Have you thought  about who will read your writing?)
  3. accurate (Is your spelling correct? Have you used capital letters and full stops?) - legible (Is it easy to read?).


  • Practise writing in English outside class — for example, write reviews of films or books you  have enjoyed, take part in discussions on the Internet in English or write emails or messages to friends in English
