    Learning to write well.

    Hello,

    I have been studying in English for the past 5 years. I have learned to write at a basic level, but found it very challenging to master it (At least to achieve advanced level writing). I have tried to write on a regular basis and give it to a teacher to correct the grammar and structure. It helped a bit but I still find myself struggling to express myself in English. If anyone know any working method/ learning strategy that helps to improve writing/ expression I am more than happy to hear.

    Thank you for your help.

    Read good books, and notice the phrasing. Try to work out why each word is placed where it is, and how the grammar works.
    This is what I do when looking at a new language. It's best if you know the story, so you concentrate on the structure. When I don't know a noun or verb, I often don't bother looking it up, as long as I can identify its place in the sentence - as long as I can parse it. That's one exercise you could try.

    Not a teacher. More information would be helpful. Are you having problems with verbs and direct objects? My advice is to invest in a really good grammar book. I would read A Comprehensive Grammar of the English Language.

    Not an English teacher, but you should try quiz tests, participate with English bloggers and as well start your own blog.
