Writing style for Blogging and International students

0

Dear Kimberley,

 

I am new to Grammarly and I think the community is so friendly. Writing in English as a non-native Speaker should consistently, otherwise, you will lose soon. My grammar has been weakned.

 

As we know, there different type of writing. My target is international audianece for university admission. I usually write blogs for international students about univerisities and admission procedure.

 

I am having difficulty in choosing my writing style.  I need support in the follwing areas:

 

  • What kind of writing style for Blogging about studying a degree in a foreing university?
  • I like using personal pronouns as it makes it easy for international students to understand. Do I need to be more academic?
  • should I write like international English or American or British?

Thanks

Dear Elgun, 

 

Thanks for writing to me.  If you don't mind, I'll address your questions directly.

 

What kind of writing style for blogging about studying a degree in a foreing university?

 

I think a casual, but grammatically-correct style is most appropriate.  Blogs, by nature, are rather personal and an overly-academic tone might bore readers.  You can make the language straight-forward and personal, while still being professional.  I suggest, however, that --- for writing samples for university admission --- you should use a professional, formal, academic style.


I like using personal pronouns as it makes it easy for international students to understand. Do I need to be more academic?

 

Again, a personal approach is better for a blog.  Pronouns are an important part of that.  Go ahead --- use personal pronouns, but you may want to make sure your readers know that your blog style is not the appropriate style for academic admissions.


Should I write like international English or American or British?

 

The kind of English you use is less important than using it correctly.  Pick one, either American or British, and use it consistently and without confusion.

 

I hope this helps!

 

Kindly, 

 

Kim
