Of the different communication skills (reading, listening/viewing, speaking, and writing), writing can be the most challenging. Maybe some people are naturally gifted writers. For them, ideas just come easily and composing sentences seems to happen smoothly. But if you are one of those who struggle in expressing your thoughts in written form, is there something that you can do to improve your writing skills?

The answer is yes!

There are different ways to improve your writing skills. In this module, you will learn about the kinds of sentences that you need to construct to form a paragraph. This module will help you explore how you can vary your sentences to make your paragraph more effective and interesting to read. You will also learn the skill of note taking— the ability to identify key information from what you read or listened to and write them down as notes to aid you in your learning. Finally, you will be introduced to the three types of writing: informative, journalistic, and creative.

Writing could be challenging but with the help of this module, you will see that you can improve on this skill by learning some techniques and with constant practice.
