Take a look at these guys…
Then ask yourself. What’s this got to do with learning English?
Well.. I was talking to someone today about improving academic writing.
Or in fact any style of writing…
Is a skill that has to be learned, practised and polished.
“Want to get better at it?” he said to me. “Put in your reps.”
‘Reps’ means repetitions.
As far as I know, it comes from weight lifting…
where “reps” is the number of times you life the wrights.
And isn’t that so true.
Want to be a good academic writer? Put in your reps.
Want to be a good English speaker? Put in your reps.
You don’t get good at ANYTHING without practising and honing the skill.
I’m not really happy with my academic writing right now. It doesn’t flow well.
So what am I going to do?
That’s right, I’m going to put in my reps…
And start doing more academic writing.
How about you?
Are you happy with your English right now?
Speaking as well as you’d like?
If not, I suggest you put in your reps, too.
