    Default Dilemma , Advice needed , weakness side detection ?



    What would you do when you’re spoken english is pretty good while your writing skills is next to none?
    I seriously want to working on improving my language, in particular my writing. Obviously, the best way I thought would be to join an english class. The trouble is no school is willing to take me in as my interviewees get the impression that my level is too good for intermediate or upper intermediate class, so the suggestion was to start a higher class somewhere else . And so I did , but soon found myself lagging behind due to the luck of grammar's knowledge , let alone my writing skills and comprehension.

    Any suggestion ? what should I do ? how can I improve my grammar/writing when my spoken words is relatively good.

    Why not post a short piece of writing on a particular subject and try all of us?
