hi there my name is Emma and in today's video we are going to look at five ways

0:09

to improve academic essay writing

0:13

ok or TOEFL writing I'll trading this doesn't have to do with when you write a

0:19

letter to your friends

0:20

ok we're talking specifically about formal writing maybe business writing or

0:26

academic writing

0:27

ok so let's get started my first tip on how to improve writing is do not use

0:35

contractions

0:36

ok and again this is for academic writing so what is the contraction don't

0:43

can't shouldn't couldn't wouldn't isn't haven't hasn't

0:48

ok so it's the short form of for example don't is the contraction of do not

0:56

ok so it's better to actually write out the word in full and academic and formal

1:04

business writing

1:06

so instead of don't use do not instead of can't use cannot

1:12

and notice how would do not it's actually two words cannot is just one

1:17

word shouldn't comes should not couldn't becomes could not wouldn't would not

1:26

isn't is not haven't have not hasn't has not

1:31

ok so don't use these use these

1:36

ok so now let's look at tip number two

1:40

so tip number two is avoid there is or there are ok so why do we avoid there is

1:51

or there are well one of the reasons is when we write we want to write our ideas

1:57

clear and concise meaning we don't want these long sentences

2:02

we want our sentences to be to the point

2:06

there are ads extra words that are not needed

2:10

so let's look at some examples a there are many issues that students face at

2:16

university so that's an ok sentence but if i wanted to make it a better sentence

2:21

that is more appropriate for academic writing

2:25

I would change it i get rid of there are and i would say instead students face

2:32

many sorry the students as many issues at university so you don't need there is

2:38

or there are a second example there are many development projects that the UN

2:45

supports ok

2:48

again we don't need there are we can just change it to the UN supports many

2:55

development projects by getting rid of their is in there are your sentences

3:00

become stronger and to the point

3:05

so tip number three is avoid words so don't use words and academic writing
