5 questions for a health professional about writing in English
Som is a massage therapist from Thailand who needs to write emails for work.
- How do you feel about writing in English?
It’s something I have to do, but I don’t like it.
- What’s the hardest thing about writing in English?
I make so many silly mistakes. And I make the same mistakes again and again. That’s very embarrassing.
- How do you overcome this?
I’ve learnt I have to make time to check my writing. I leave the draft for a while and then check it at least two times. That helps me find my silly mistakes.
- What are your writing goals?
I want to stop making silly mistakes all the time and write better English.
- What’s your advice for others who need to write in English?
It’s very hard but keep trying. My writing coach encourages me to keep going and now I can see some progress, which makes me feel more confident.
