Student or Learner
Please tell me how can I create good expression of English in my writtings. What are the symptoms of good expression. And please suggest me ways to improve expression.
(1) If you are interested in writing clearer and more effective
sentences, here is a suggestion:
(a) Write a paragraph with 10 sentences.
(b) The subject could be anything that interests you.
(c) post it in the Editing & Writing Topics forum at this
website. Someone will read your post and make suggestions.
(d) Do this on a regular basis, and little by little your writing
will become better.
(e) As the other poster advised, if you have a question about
English grammar, post it here in the Ask a Teacher forum.

'Symptoms' is not an appropriate word to use for 'expressions'. I suggest 'qualities' or 'attributes'.
Good expressions should be clear, apt and suit the context.
Being able to express well is an art which can only be developed through lots and lots of reading and writing. It is more important for beginners to concentrate on the basics - writing correct English. As you improve, style and good expressions will come naturally.
I think he means 'descriptive phrases'.
not a teacher
