Also, I have discovered that choosing topics is not as difficult as I initially found it to be – it needs creativity in many cases.
One thing that I have never quite learned is how to make transitions when introducing new ideas. The use of connectors such as “so … that, although, no sooner …than and thought” have proved to be quite challenging. Similarly, incorporating quotes and citing other people’s works in my writing has remained a challenge – maybe because I haven’t learned how to use some punctuations marks. Although my grammar has improved, I know I have quite a lot to do still. For example many times I misspell words that look so simple. Because my grammar is still inadequate, I often lack words to use in place of others. I will try reading more literature to learn more words and how to use them.
I need to learn how to keep to the topic as I write. In many occasions, I have presented irrelevant information and far exceeded or presented inadequate material. I may start writing well but somewhere along the line I go off topic. I tend to use so many words to explain even simple concepts. I hope to work on these weaknesses. I will have to practice more to stick to the topic.
I also want to thank you for being so helpful to me and to the whole of our class.
