All IELTS candidates and others want to improve their written English because either they need for IELTS exam or they need to write emails, business reports, essays, job applications and other types of texts. Since we live in the age of electronic communication, there is one essential step you must take in order to improve your written English:

Learn how to type! I have seen so many learners struggling with basic punctuation errors because they don't know how to use their keyboard properly. Take a look at this example:

"hy ! i`m nooni from tatlan my english is bed can u help my ?i` will thanks u"

As you can see, this text contains quite a number of errors. Some of them are spelling mistakes that could have been corrected by a spell checker. Others are what I would call "typing errors". For example, the writer uses the "grave accent" (`) instead of the apostrophe ('). This means she or he hasn't learned how to type properly. Here are some more typical "typing mistakes":
  • no space after commas and full stops: My name is Frank.I'm from Chicago.I'm interested in reading books,playing football and cooking Chinese food.

  • no capital letter at the beginning of a sentence: my name is Frank. i'm from Chicago. i'm interesteed in reading books, playing football and cooking Chinese food.

  • no capital letters for proper names: My name is frank. I'm from chicago. I'm interested in reading books, playing football and cooking chinese food.

  • no full stops/periods at the end of each sentence: My name is Frank I'm from Chicago I'm interested in reading books, playing football and cooking Chinese food

In addition to these common typing errors, some learners of English have developed the habit of using "chat and SMS style" when they compose a text. Typical examples are:
  • u instead of you (can u help me?)
  • i instead of I (i don't understand)
  • dont instead of don't (i dont understand)
  • ur instead of your (what's ur name)
  • whats instead of What's (whats your name)
  • etc.

If you are really serious about improving your English, you must learn how to type properly. You can find one of the best free Internet type trainers by googling the phrase "dance mat typing". It takes you to a BBC page that offers an excellent interactive typing school which teaches you how to type step by step. All you need to do is spend a few minutes every day completing the interactive exercises until you learn how to type all the letters of the alphabet. Being able to type properly and fast gives you a huge advantage over those people who haven't developed this skill. On top of that, you will learn English much faster because you can ask more questions, write more forum messages and meet more interesting people.
