re: How to Improve Writing Skills as a Non-Native Speaker VIEW POST


I'm a non-native speaker too.

I was awful at English in school, almost dropped out because of it, that was 15 years ago.

I wanted to become a developer and to be on the bleeding edge of technology I had to read English content online.

I got the impression German tech-news were often 1-2 weeks behind, so one day I stopped reading German tech content entirely.

When I noticed my English improving I also started reading English books and watching movies and shows in English, which grew my understanding tremendously.

2017 I started blogging, this showed me my deficits in writing, but I got better over time. In 2018 I even wrote my first book entirely in English. Grammarly and a native-speaker as an editor helped much with that.


Wow! You really did a great job! 👍
