How to improve your English writing skills?

I will share easy and quick tips that will improve writing in formal and academic settings.

Avoid using contractions – Do not use contractions while constructing your sentences, esp. if you  are writing a business email or formal letters i.e. words like don’t, can’t, shouldn’t, couldn’t, wouldn’t, isn’t, haven’t should be avoided.

Avoid there are/ there is – It will make your sentence more lengthy and boring to read. e.g

  •  There are many problems in her class (incorrect)
  • Her class is facing many problems. (Correct)
  • There is an exhibition at the hotel. (Incorrect)
  • The hotel is holding an exhibition. (Correct)

Avoid using unnecessary words in your sentences like   very; really, a lot instead use better vocabulary. It will definitely not change the meaning of your sentence but will make it sound interesting.

  •                 Students think literature is very hard.
  •                 Students think literature is difficult.

Make use of strong verbs – It will make your sentence sound more appropriate and concrete.

  •                   He gave assistance to my friend. (weak verb)
  •                   My friend assisted him. (Strong verb)


  • Hi 🙂 and thanks for the lessons 🙂

    In the below statements
    a) Many students think literature is “very hard”
    b) The movie was “really controversial”

    here i feel ” very and really ” can be used as intensifiers???? if the answer is no….why????

    instead of “very hard” can we use “very difficult”???? and why????

    I am little confused with these things. hope they will be cleared. 🙂
