    How can I write a perfect writing without grammatical mistakes?

    From my experience, to prevent yourself from translating the language from Chinese to English, you need to dive yourself in the English language. The more you get in touch with English, the less your urge to connect it with Chinese. Of course, sometimes you do need some of your native language to remember some English words. And never to forget the fundamentals.
    In addition, you shouldn't try to get a perfect writing without grammatical mistakes, try to write a good one with the least grammatical mistakes you can.
    Hope that helps.

    Forget Chinese and think in English, but it's easier said than done. I don't think I will be able to do so in the rest of my life.

    Maybe not, Matthew, but you're very convincing to us, so how have you got this far? Whatever strategies you've used have worked.

    It's difficult to do it. You are from China.You know we are always translating the language from Chinese to English in speaking and writing.
    If you do it successfully,you can share your experience there by reply or post here.Because i found it difficult do to it. Not only me,but also many Chinese students
    have been writing a Chinese language of writing. They deal with or handle the topic by word by word. Not read the full sentence and then try to understand the sentence. Finally, can you share your experience here? thank you very much!
