Model yourself on the best

Read books by English-speaking writers and articles from the English press. Use quotes in your English essay, remembering to give the author. Pay attention to useful expressions and English phrases that people use for whom English is their native language. Get inspired with other people’s ideas. There is nothing wrong with that, until you copy them literally, without adding anything from yourself.

Check on the Internet

Wondering how to construct a sentence in your English essay? Check the dictionary of sentence constructions with a given word in the dictionary and adapt them to your needs. Search the Internet for examples of using phrases and expressions and transform them as you fit.

However, if there are many such results, it is very likely that the given expression is often used.

Learn from colleagues
