給英語寫作初學者的十條建議

人最難的不是跟別人討教經驗,最難的是把別人的經驗聽進去,並應用到實踐當中。(The most difficult thing is not to ask for advice, but listen to the advice and practise it.)

自己讀大學的時候,不知道輔修什麼專業,打電話回傢。爸爸努力幫我打聽瞭一番,姑姑(有點遠的親戚)說法律很好,這個很有前途。我卻選擇瞭會計。

如果我選擇瞭法律,並且堅持下去,那在這幾年強烈需要法律知識、強烈意識到法律的重要性的時候,我就會有底很多。

再想,如果當年會計學好瞭,或許也是很好的出路。

這樣,我糾結瞭。

好吧,言歸正傳,正文如下:

10 Practical Tips on Good English Writing

1. Think clearly before you write. Only when you can think clearly can you write an article with clear logic and reasoning.

2. Narrow down your topic to the one that you can handle within your capabilities and required word limit.

3. Write in the voice of an adult.

4. Use a clear structure and develop the paragraph by your argumentation methods.

5. Use details and facts.

6. Avoid using the same word to begin each sentence. Though repeated beginning sometimes can create a parallel structure and certain atmosphere, it may also have the risk of dulling/boring readers. For beginners of English writing, this tip is especially useful and helpful.

7. Use different sentence structures (compound sentences, complex sentences, special structures like inversion).

8. Make good use of transitional words.

9. In selection of words, use the more precise or accurate one.

10. Make a natural ending. The concluding sentence is not a must. Let the paragraph end smoothly and naturally.
