It takes a lot of practice and study to be able to write well. My English language skills were not the best. I struggled to read and recognize different writing styles when I was taking a class in English. It was difficult to make a coherent statement on the basis of English sentences in my first year. I was able to understand an idea from my native language without having to translate it into English because of significant interference. There is however a significant difference in the structure of sentences between my native tongue and English. But, I was able to read well and write more meaningful sentences.
Because I lack material mastery, it was also difficult to create high-quality works. It was hard for me, for example, to write a cohesive essay on the Internet of Things’ impact on education. CI was unable to comprehend the IoT concept as a whole, which made it more difficult for me to compose an essay that requires prior knowledge of technology and computers. Sometimes I could understand what I had to say, but writing the words was difficult. For writing in foreign languages, it is best to read widely. Brandt (1998) states that it is possible to improve academic writing skills by using a wide range of language strategies for every situation. My academic writing was in its early stages. I also had difficulties with grammar and vocabulary. Most of my writing in the beginning was filled with errors of grammar, such as inappropriate use of pronouns, adjectives, or adverbs. I was plagued with spelling errors, which made it hard to comprehend and read. It was also difficult to find acceptable literature and study material, since I Googled it.
As my writing skills improved, I was able to write essays more easily.
