English is the official universal language. It is, by far, the language of international trade, finance, diplomacy, etc. It is used not only in English spoken countries, such as Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and The United Kingdom but worldwide. Learning to write English correctly will help you for the rest of your life. It is quite difficult and challenging for many people.

It takes practice and patience because writing is a craft that can take years to learn. Even native English speakers often do not write well! Here are some tips to improve your English writing.

If you want to make sure your writing is clear, coherent, and error-free, you need to check your spelling, grammar, punctuation, and style. Even though spelling and grammar checking tools are useful and increasingly advanced, they still make mistakes.

Some examples are: Grammarly, LanguageTool (Language Tool Grammar and Spell Checker extension), Hemingway App, Scribens, ReversoTranslation, After the deadline, SpellCheckPlus, spellcheck24.net, PaperRater, and SpellChecker.net. These are freemium spelling and grammar checkers that find typos, spelling errors, and grammar mistakes. These services are free, but a premium is charged for additional features that expand the functionality of the free tier.
