10 Online Tools to Improve Your English

Julie over at Essay Mama contacted me and asked to publish this post. I thought it offered some great tools for improving your English writing skills. Do you use any of these or other writing tools? If so, please let me know!

Have you ever questioned your English writing skill? Personally, I tend to do that quite a lot because it is such a dynamic and diverse language that changes all the time. I know I’m not alone in this. Practice always makes perfect and you should approach English with the same mentality. I found out that reading a lot can help you to improve not only your writing but also your communication skills. In addition to reading, you can also try out these awesome online tools which have been proven to be very effective at helping one improve their English writing skills:

This editing tool ensures that your writing is as bold and as clear as possible. This tool does its best when it comes to identifying long and complex sentences by highlighting them in yellow. When you see this in some of your written sentences, it is an indication that they need to be shortened or better yet split. On the other hand, the red highlight shows that your sentences are so dense and complicated that your readers can easily get confused trying to reading the content.

We all claim to know how to write but not all of us can write with the perfection that is demanded.  This tool helps you to know exactly how readable your content is. The tool runs a score between 0 and 100 with clear indications of how your content is easily readable. All you have to do is to copy and paste your content and wait for the results. At just $1 a year, you can determine how easier it is to read your content.

The website offers a lot more than you can imagine. You will find a dictionary, word dynamo, quotes, blogs, apps and crosswords which are all useful resources that can be used to enhance your English writing skills.

Once you set up an account, you gain access to a number of online resources that are all designed to help you improve your skills. The service can be used as free source for literary analysis on the internet. Novelguide will provide you with some sort of educational supplement which will provide you with a better understanding of both classical and contemporary literature.

As I mentioned above, you can really enhance your writing skills by improving your reading habits. Bartleby is an online service that offers you great books which you can access at any time. Besides just books, the site also offers Thesaurus, Quotations and shows you how best to use the English language.

    Grammerly has a tool that apparently will not only check content like Hemingway but also to see if you have ahem “accidentally” plagiarized anything.

      Hi thank you, Fluency MC! I don’t know since I hadn’t tried any of them (this is a guest post) but will definitely have to do it!

    Hi Olga,

    I have bookmarked this page for the amazing tools you discuss. I also expected Grammerly to be there as I have used it at the university and was helpful. I also used Ginger Software and was helpful but not as good as Grammerly. I have never heard of Hemingway. I find it very helpful and will certainly use it.

    Thank you for the post.
