0 Improve your writing

Good morning!

Writing is an important part of exams but sometimes is difficult to practice out of the classroom context, because you need some kind of feedback to keep on improving.

For this reason, I would like to talk today about a Cambridge web page that provides feedback for your writings.

Write & Improve is a Cambridge web page (still BETA version) mainly for B1 and B2 students, which provides immediate feedback for your writings. They provide different kinds of tasks that you may  find in a Cambridge exam and they don't just correct mistakes, but also make suggestions on how you could improve your writing.

Here you have a video that explains how it works.

No more excuses!Start today!
