Learning how to
write is essential because this not just to be prepared for the present but
also for the future. In my future job, I could use what I have learned in
different areas of writing like writing a letter, researching, and written
reports. As an international student, I am not a native speaker in English and
my hometown. I have started to acquire learning in writing when I came in the
United States. During the year before, I have entered English language courses
to practice my abilities in writing. I had my English courses and most of the
task to do in this course was the free essays. This just means that my
instructor would give a topic then I will talk about it. In this way, I have
practiced my thinking skills and my English knowledge.

After that, I have
entered this University to study engineering but also to enhance more my
knowledge in English and to practice my writing in English. This was my second
semester here and so far I am happy and glad with it. I have learned a lot of
things in my present studies. One of the things that I have learned is writing
a well-organized document. One of the events in my life that I experienced in
terms of writing is, I got a low grade in my writing homework. I got a low
grade because the document that I wrote is not organized.

My writing do not
have any focus which means the essay was poorly written than I thought. I have
many mistakes also in grammar and sentence construction as well as the use of
adjectives. Through the mistakes that I have had, I am improving a lot in my
writing. I have learned too that, proofreading is essential after you are done
with your essay. This was a big help especially when checking if there is any
typographical errors, grammar errors, and some unidentified word usage. During
my first take of the writing course, I got many mistakes because I wasn’t
familiar with the right way to write an essay.

Now, I am very glad
that I was able to express myself in written works. I was able to give in my
writing what I want to explain to my audience and what I want to show in my
writing. The comments and feedback of my instructor helped me a lot for me to
realize on how to write an effective and efficient essay. I have learned that,
when writing a research, it is important to cite the sources to avoid

If the idea in the
research is not from your own idea, you should cite it otherwise it will
results to be plagiarized. If the idea was also paraphrase but still not your
own idea, you should also cite the source where it came from. The sources
helped a lot to show that the research was credible because you have cited the
results of your research from peer reviewed journal or scholastic articles.

Writing is really
hard especially when you do not know what to write. Other than that, it is hard
when you do not know how to construct a sentence in the language that you do
not know since your hometown is in different place. However, in this semester
in ENGL 101, I want to enhance more my skills and abilities in English. I do
want to learn more English in order for me to communicate well in terms of
writing and oral.
