Read newspapers and storybooks everyday. Make reading a habit. Definitely you have to also practice writing. Read more and write more. Soon enough, your writing skills will improve.

Good Luck.

When I write, I don't worry about grammar. I just site in front of my computer and start typing, trying to write down what wanted to say. My opinions/thoughts/ideas/arguments are much more important than grammatically correct sentences that are nonsense. Then, I re-write.

1. focus on the major and minor supporting details, organization, introduction, and conclusion
2. correct grammar and punctuation
3. come up with an excellent title that summarize my paper
4. if having extra time, style some sentences and choose the perfect words

A good writing teacher will always tell you that good writers spend 80-90% of the time rewriting their work.

To improve your grammatical skills, you have to practice writing more. As you write, do ask someone around you who is good at grammar to check your grammar. You can also buy some grammar books. When you are reading newspapers or storybooks, do see and look carefully on how the sentences are structured (that includes grammar too.)

Most importantly, you must grab hold of the basic grammatical skills before you can proceed to higher levels.

Good Luck. Emotion: big smile

Hi Jay80,

I think your comment was contradictory to the main objective most learners have which is to improve their English so that they are able to write grammatically correct, yet make logical sense to the readers. Grammar, in my opinion should be the emphasis to be put on top the list for things learners should pay attention to, not the last. After all, there is no style to speak of when the content is riddled with grammatical mistakes. A piece of good writing should have well composed thoughts and logical sequence. Ideas that we express are essentially a personal conception which requires well developed structure to support. I think you have a few valid points. Though, I disagree with the comment on grammar.

Hi there,

I think what Jay80 talked about is what writers call "brainstorming" -- jotting down ideas that come to our heads.

Is this what you mean, Jay?
Goodman,

It's fine if you disagree with me. But if you ask any writing teachers, they will tell you that only basic grammar is needed and editing is the last thing you should do.

Writing is like speaking, a form of communications. If you speak broken English or write grammatically incorrect sentences, I still understand you. Though the level of understanding may vary. But, you have to give me something. In Rajesh's case, he wastes too much time worrying about his G-R-A-M-M-A-R when he supposes to share his importantant thoughts, observations and ideas.

Take a beginning grammar class if you want to learn grammar. If you want to learn how to write, take a writing class. While you are at it, take a reading and speed reading class.

BTW, I think many foreign/esl students might know more grammar than college students.

Julie,

Yes, it's called brainstorming.
