Writing in a second language is not an easy task, especially when an academic audience will evaluate the document. A good paper does not happen the first time anyone sits down to compose. Written work only becomes a valuable product after the writer plans, organizes, drafts, revises and edits it. Therefore, the process of writing truly demands time, practice, and tools.
Tools that guide or instruct writers in expressing their ideas overcome some of the hurdles in writing. One such tool is a writing reference or, better yet, tips on how to “put it all together” creating a fine-tuned document/paper.
Take advantage of these writing tips, by simply printing out the tips and placing them by the computer for easy reference. Everyone, even native speakers can benefit from this type of tool.
Note: All writing information is based on general standards for academic papers. We suggest checking with your professors or department for any specific writing policies Thanks!
