When I thought about this topic, I said to myself “Writing in English is hard, because it’s not my native language”
It’s hard but is also an opportunity. I needed to start practicing my English. And guess what was the way?
I said, “Ok I will start to write in English because almost every content I consume online is in English and I have read and watched a lot”
But of course writing is challenging.
So in this article, I teach you what it’s working for me.
Of course, I could use the easy way who was to just use translate apps.
But this was enough?
I have been using google translate with my Spanish-based articles. And it worked weird.
It doesn´t have that consistency or as I want to call “soul”.
It seemed like just different words and doesn’t seem to be written by a human.
So another thing that happens to me, was to begin writing in English.
And maybe I will sound better, you can judge by yourself.
Of course, my grammar is not the best, but anyways here I am. And I will continue to improve.
Just focusing on writing. It´s that simple?
Maybe not, but some of the benefits I could say are
- Start thinking in English
- Start creating content (in English ofc)
- Having more articles makes you more confident. Like “I have written so many articles, I know I am good”
As you see, there are many benefits and progress over time.
Receiving and giving are both beautiful things to do.
And consuming media in a different language makes it faster to learn it.
Also, It seems that you are giving your knowledge, expertise and somehow improving the way for us.
It´s that simple.
Remember you can follow me on Twitter @fernandocutire, I am getting better at writing in English so we could talk there.
