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


Cool post! Having such a large portion of the dev community communicating in your native language is something I think a lot of English speakers take for granted, myself included. In the spirit of constant improvement and help from native speakers, I've done some edits for you :). I hope they are helpful!

I used to be an awful writer, mainly because I have only learned English as a second language at school.

Yes, my English writing

I have use(d) the program in my everyday writing for over a year or more.

It helps find comma errors with ease, detect and correct repetitive words, and highlight(s) the missing details during the writing

Remember, that no one was born a professional and no one is perfect.

In the beginning, probably, you might will not be that good,


Amazing! 😃Thank you for the edits, and your spent time on that 🙏 I appreciate it ☺️and will correct the post later.


But you never did correct them!
I am not a native speaker myself but I noticed some of the errors that Sam Colburn saw.
