What Is Meant By “Writing Good English” ?

The meaning of ‘good English‘, and hence writing good English, may vary from people to people around the world since we come from different backgrounds and due to the nature of our education. Despite the fact that there is no governing bodies of linguists to gauge its exact meaning, we do have a standard set by the authorities indulged in linguistics. Hence, sensible authors, careful writers and educated people using English language as their medium of writing, try to conform to these standards as closely as they can. These standards may be grammatical rules, language structure, and universally accepted words, idioms or metaphors.

English Language, IMHO The Best

There are so many languages nowadays which can be used, but the English language is the most widely used (and universally accepted formal language). In my humble opinion, English language includes and transcends all subjects. It is for English writers and lovers a whole means of expression, the attainment of which makes them articulate and intelligible human beings, able to inherit the past, to possess the present and to confront the future. The ability to write good English is simply an art for them.

My Own Experience With Writing – Good English A Myth?

I was not so fluent or good at writing English in my early days of school. I was always favoring French, the second official language of my country – Mauritius. There were some personal reasons which I will not elaborate right now to keep on the subject title. But one main reason was that I was always scoring an ‘A’ in all my French classes despite the fact that I was never doing any French essays or practicing it.

This fact was initially a mystery to me because I was always trying my best to write good English and I was never successful in getting good results. Then, I finally remembered I was frequently reading some one or two pages of French books every day. Yeah I mean it, I loved the famous French book – ‘Les Six Compagnons de la Croix Rousse, by Jean Jacques Bonzo‘ and this made reading French more than just a hobby.

I was reading in my free times (when there was an empty class session when teachers were busy or absent), sometimes during recess, in the bus and at night just to finish all its series. Like this, my hunger for French adventure books became a craze. But in this process, I was unaware that while reading so much, French words seemed to have become hackneyed phrases.

This is why my friends used to tell me: “man, where do you fetch all these nice French wordings?“. What I want to emphasize here is; if you keep reading and looking at English/French words or a small sentence everyday for at least some 30 minutes, you will end up with these words soaked into your mind without realising it. And when you will start to write English, you will be amazed to see your mind popping out nice words; that’s how you will progress to write good English!

The Secret Of Writing Good English

writing + good english
While reading you should build up a personal ‘database‘ of special words or phrases. Get a small copy book and list down all striking, unknown words to you. Therefore, be regular in breeding a medley of nice words in your special ‘note-book‘. Those precious words are your key to writing good English.

Now, does this mean that you should read everyday? Not really, but you should definitely go through your smorgasbord of words in your note-book everyday! I strongly believe that there are 2 kinds of people – one who read very very often, if not everyday, to master the language (as i did unknowingly for the French language) and the second person who read little, but nurturing a high mastery of the basics and techniques of the English language (this one was my conscious experience with English).
But here, the key tricks are:

  1. Each time and every single time you read, you should keep growing your ‘database’ of words. Keep looking for new prominent words.
  2. Make the English dictionary be your bosom English friend – never keep a word in your book without finding and writing down it’s meaning. Else, do not bother about even writing it down – trust me!
  3. You should pinpoint good critical articles/books, think about what you are reading and in this process be generous to yourself by taking notes conscientiously of new golden words. This is because you are reading rarely and hence you should make those rare readings worth 10 times the ones that you would read everyday. So you have to be very selective and analytical in what you will read.
  4. Now that you have a copy-book full of defined words, don’t just sit around and smile at it. Go and put them into practice. Start by writing good sentences with these words and write some essays. Writing here is pivotal. Just like a car cannot run without a battery, you cannot expect to have a fluent English if you do not practice writing English. (the battery being your skill in writing and your car the knowledge of the language and wordings)

Support Your Effort To Write Good English With Observation

Going further in our approach, while reading decent articles, you should see how Mr X is using his words in his articles. Observe how he constructs his sentences. Then, with your analytical and critical reading, coupled with your observation and some personal insights, you should try to emulate the fresh expressiveness of Mr X.

How to do this, you say? Sit down, try to write a good English sentence where you can use those words better than Mr X. You will once again be amazed at yourself at how well you performed. You will even be seeing yourself gaining momentum and hence writing good English paragraphs. Reward yourself after your hard work, you deserve it!

=> I sincerely hope this article on ‘how to write good English‘ and my effort to explain it to you, has been fruitful for you. If you do like I explain, there is no excuse in not being able to produce good quality English writings. And I wish you all the best

    How to write English
    Remember to never split an infinitive. The passive voice should never be used. Do not put statements in the negative form. Don’t use contractions in formal writing, and don’t use no double negatives. It is incumbent on one to avoid archaisms. Proofread carefully to see if you words out or incorect speling. It has come to our considered attention that in a large majority of cases, far too many people use a great deal more words than is absolutely necessary when engaged in the practice of writing sentences. If you reread your work, you can find on rereading a great deal of redundant repetition can be removed and eliminated by rereading and editing.
    A writer must not shift your point of view. If the writer is considerate of the reader, he won’t have a problem with ambiguous sentences. Don’t write a run-on sentence its hard to read you must punctuate it. If a dependent clause precedes an independent clause put a comma after the dependent clause. But avoid commas, that are not necessary, and don’t overuse exclamation marks!!! Use the semicolon properly, always use it where it is appropriate; and never where it isn’t. Reserve the apostrophe for it’s proper use and omit it when its not needed. In statements involving two word phrases, make an all out effort to use hyphens, but make sure you hyp- henate properly.

    Take the bull by the hand and avoid mixing metaphors. Always pick on the correct idiom. Avoid colloquial stuff, and trendy locutions that sound flaky. Also, avoid all awkward or affected alliteration. Unqualified superlatives are the worst of all. Beware of and eschew pompous prolixity, and avoid the utilization of enlarged words when shortened ones will do. Avoidification of neologisms strengthenifies your prosification. Avoid using sesquipedalian words. It is not resultful to transform one part of speech into another by prefixing, suffixing, or other alterings. Perform a functional iterative analysis on your work to root out third generation transitional buzz words. Steer clear of incorrect forms of verbs that have snuck into the language. The de facto use of foreign phrases vis-a-vis plain English in your written tete-a-tetes makes the sentence harder to understand.

    Everyone should be careful to use a singular pronoun with singular nouns in their writing. Place pronouns as close as possible, especially in long sentences, as of 10 or more words, to their antecedents. Writing carefully, dangling participles must be avoided. If any word is improper at the end of a sentence, a linking verb is. Write all adverbial forms correct. Verbs has to agree with their subjects, and the adverb always follows the verb. This sentence no verb. Which is not a complete sentence, but merely a subordinate clause. A preposition is something you should never end a sentence with. And don’t start a sentence with a conjunction.

    Last but not least, avoid dyed-in-the-wool cliches like the plague; seek viable alternatives.

    Please Help to check this english word is correct or not?

    did you returned your Spore working pass to ICA ?
    yes i did returned my spore working pass to ICA

  11. Wakish says:

    Hi Rock,
    no your sentences are not good. There are 2 mistakes:

    1) The word “spore” is a noun and you are using it an adjective in your two sentences which is not good.
    2) The meaning of the word ‘spore’ does not fit your sentences at all. I think you have wrongly interpreted what you wanted.

    MISTAKE 2:
    You should say “i did return” instead of “i did returned” without the ‘ed’. This is because the verb ‘did’ which is in the past tense and hence the verb after it should be in normal form

    => Just tell me what exactly you wanted to convey and I will find the right adjective or word for you..


  12. Norbu says:

    I’m a class ten student in India but my English level is still poor. I use to read and write via my passion but simply I don’t feel like improving my English. So I need your advice or your guidance to improve my english level.

  13. terab says:

    Hi, Here I want to share my doubt regarding reading english books….When I’m reading a novel or any book in english I come across with many new words that I don’t know. So it is important that I should stop reading the article and search for the words in dictionary or should I continue reading and after searching for the words?
    then when I found some new words what is the best way to remember the words and to use it in a correct way in my writings?? thank you.

  14. Wakish says:

    @ Norbu:
    Hi Norbu, thank you for comment, I guess that your reading passion is greater than your writing passion because if you have a true passion for writing as well, you would surely be willing to improve it. But this is not a serious matter because you are on the right track, let me explain:

    Your reading passion is in itself a great thing. Because day by day when you read, your mind will store the words, expression and phrases without you realise it. And also, you will be able to write words without errors. But this is a slow process.

    If you want to increase your english language skills, then I would strongly advise you to take it a bit more seriously, how can you do this? You can do it by:
    1) Keeping a special notebook where you write all words that you do not know the meaning of. Write them down, open your dictionary and find their meaning. Once your find a good meaning, write it back in your notebook. To know if the meaning is really good, show your notebook to an elder, your parent or your teacher and ask them to verify.
    2) Everyday open your notebook and read those words and try making sentences with them. And try to memorize those words and use them in your class writings, like in essays..etc

    If you just follow the two steps I mention above, there is no doubt that your english skills will be great and BETTER than your classmates in a few months! Do let me know about your progress and also read the articles that I have on my blog, I convey alot of useful message and words.

    @ terab:
    Hi terab..
    There are 2 approaches which you can use here:

    1) Spend some time only for reading and another hour for only writing and finding new meanings of new words. But the disadvantage of this, is that you can forget all the words you came across, or simply getting tired or lazy to come again over that words.

    2) The best advice would be that whenever you come across a new word, immediately stop, write the words in your notebook, open your dictionary and write the meaning down. Once you know the meaning, re-read the sentence in your novel and carry on until you find a new word again. This way, you will understand what you are reading at 100% :)

    Let me know about your progress and your feedback. Have a nice time!

  15. terab says:

    Hi, I really appreciate your work and your advices that helped me alot while reading. Infact I’m a Tibetan and I’m learning english as my second language. I’ve written a book in Tibetan and it was already published but I’m still a student and I’m now only 16 years old. My plan is to improve my english level as much as I can and to transform myself that can able to write a book or a novel in english language also. So can you show me a path that I can achieve my goal and to give a great impression from my english writtings to my readers.
    Thank You

  16. terab says:


    I’m still waiting for ur answer!!

  17. Wakish says:


    If you don’t find me replying fast, this means I’m busy in real life at the moment. But I will surely get back to you as soon as I can.

    About your 2nd question:

    1) Whatever your level of english you need to keep the advice that I first gave into practice. You need to build and strengthen your words, idioms, expressions further.

    2) Writing a novel is very different from writing an essay or for a journal. Each type of writing has their own style, format, standard and rules. So you need to make your own research on the specific writing that you want, in your case i think it’s a novel. So read as much as you can on the styles, requirements and standards of novel writing.

    3) Observe existing work of established novelist and try to adapt your own style from there.

    4) Last but not the least, you need to keep reading and observing a lot if you want to become a good writer.

    Thanks for your comments and feedback!

  23. Jalal says:

    I am a reporting officer, working for a non-government, international and Amercian based organization. From my title one can guess how strongly I am involved in writing reports in English language. I read your article and it attracted me alot. You talked about reading everyday but did not indicate how much time should one spend on reading English on daily basis? second, I read English news on BBC and CNN sites everyday. Do you think this habbit will improve my english writing?

  24. Wakish says:

    Hello Jalal,
    thank you for your comment, lets answer your questions:

    1) “You talked about reading everyday but did not indicate how much time should one spend on reading English on daily basis?”

    I think a minimum of 30mins should be spent. Read out loud. Ideally 1hr is great per day. Try to say out loud words that you have difficulty in pronouncing.

    2) second, I read English news on BBC and CNN sites everyday. Do you think this habbit will improve my english writing?

    Reading is a factor to help you in building up vocabularies, observing how words and sentences are being constructed and keeping you updated with new words and idioms. But reading only will not help you improve your english. Improving your english consists of reading, observing, hearing and WRITING! It is very very crucial to write. Construct phrases with same words but different meanings..etc

    I hope I have answered your queries? Feel free to discuss it more ๐Ÿ˜‰

  63. Horeram Tanti says:

    Sir, Here in your article as well as in answer section, I have found so many helpful tips about imporving english. Wonderful thing is that I myself planned some of them before and had been doing for sometimes and stopped. E.g. reading aloud, make notebook of new words, separate time only for reading and writing and always read the dictionary. These all tips came to mind automatically.

    Hello to the author and thanks a ton for writing such a good article. It helped me a lot.
    Actually my problem is, that my grammar, spellings are okay and when it comes to speaking English, I am quiet fluent as well. I love writing and when i start writing i feel like writing more and more. The problem is after writing whenever i go through my article or whatever i wrote, I find the level of english very low, basically i want to write a bit high level english, like other writers do. I know some of the tactics of writing as well, but somehow my writing is not up to the mark as yours. There is problem with my vocabulary as well, I am trying to improve it.

    You please suggest me something, that how can i write better.

    Thanks You and Regards
    Poonam Malik
