Congratulations! You’ve just written the perfect essay.
You spent hours writing. Creating a draft and making multiple revisions.
You are certain that you have just written the best essay of your life.
Except when you submit your final essay online and look back at the review screen and notice you typed a word twice. Your heart drops. You are crushed.
I always admire those writing in English when it is not their first language. I have written in Hangeul and in Arabic and can barely write a complete sentence. It takes a lot of courage to write in a foreign language. It takes courage to write in your own native language.
Heck, most native English speakers still struggle to write and they have been doing it since kindergarten.
Learning to write better is never been easier with the invention of such new tools, and it is not necessary to have a teacher by your side correcting your every mistake.
Reality: Better Writing = Better Test Scores = More opportunities = Your Dreams
I know writing is hard, remembering grammar rules is torture but you have to make a decision to get better and do whatever it to get better. I have students that say “Teacher it’s only a few mistakes” but a few mistakes can make a big difference in scoring an A2 vs B1.
You don’t have to feel so insecure or overwhelmed. Grammarly was created to help us. It’s a free/low-cost tool to help us all overcome the beast and all become Ninja Masters in writing.
Perfect your emails, essays, paragraphs and just about any type of writing you need to complete.

Why should I get Grammarly?
- You get a grammar teacher by your side at all times
- Even native speakers use it.
- You can use it to keep track frequent mistakes.
Grammarly doesn’t replace human eyes and sometimes words and phrases still may need to be check by a human if you are unsure. But it is still one of the best solutions I have seen to help improve your writing.
Just because Grammarly made a suggestion to change something doesn’t mean you should just blindly change it. Think about its context within your writing first.
Grammarly is software and may not be able to determine what you mean.
You still need to proofread.
- Use it when you don’t have anyone to proofread your writing, and use it to determine frequent mistakes.
- It’s not perfect but it sure beats not having any help at all.
