Correção de texto: Comment in a forum

Although I'm probably making a lot of grammar erros in this comment or writing in a confuse way, I can read entire academic/technical books, listen to specialized talks and study other languages (eg. Japanese) using English.
Listening and reading are for sure the easiest parts of learning English. It comes to you naturally if you use it in a day basis even living in country where people don't speak it.

I text chat in English everyday because my job depend on it but I'm not really interested in talking in English or Japanese.
I should change that mindset but I'm more interested in getting the information and entertainment I can't get in my native language from many kind of medias than living in another country.

I just started to learn Japanese 2 months ago so I can't read (let alone speak) but I listen to it for many years that I can understand interviews, shows, etc.
It was the same for English, before many years watching videos lessons to learn drawing and coding just getting a gist by the images at same point I started to undersand what they are talking and from there was just a matter of keeping listing and reading to get used.

However I want to create study material and technical articles in English about the things I work with.
I wonder how and what I have to practice to learn to wrtie well enough so I don't sound silly to the reader of the article or in a comment like this...


A primeira coisa que percebo olhando pra isso é que eu uso demais o pronome "I" quando comento sobre mim.
Além disso, devido a quantidade de leitura em Inglês que faço, praticamente o dia todo lendo (convivo mais com inglês escrito do que português mesmo vivendo no Brasil) posso perceber que meu estilo de escrita é confuso mas não faço ideia de como treinar e corrigi-lo.
Agradeceria dicas sobre isso.

Thank you Telma.
The best solution are books about writing. They teach how to structure and harmonize an essay (or a single sentence). I'm improving very fast. Not only in English style, about also, how to better express in text.
I recommend books like "The Book on Writing" and others for everyone that wants to write better.

You are talking about how you have improved.


Just a suggestion, though.
And yes, you´re on the right path, practice makes perfect! :P

You are talking about how you have improved, the "how to" reminded me of book prefaces...it had an way impersonal ring to it. It´s my impression, though.

It makes sense. Something clicked in my head, actually.
We didn't realize these things until someone points it out.
Thank you.
