I will be using an excerpt from an essay I wrote in English 12 titled "My Writing Skills" demonstrating if I used any of my everyday expressions rather than academic expressions.
"My first thought about english 12 was that it was going to be complicated. After 12 years of no schooling, I was sure I had forgotten how to write a proper paper, one that is properly structured with correct grammar. The fear of not being able to write a proper paper was my greatest weakness. A weakness that would hinder my grade on future papers. Another weakness being the difficulty I have in writing an introduction. Introducing the topic is not a problem but creating a thesis statement or the placement of a thesis statement is often difficult.I also have trouble with being repetitive, I find myself saying the same thing over and over in a paper but in different ways. I have hopes to improve this sooner rather than later".
My first thoughts about English 12 were that it was going to be complicated. I was sure I had forgotten how to write an academic paper, one that is properly structured with correct grammar. The apprehension that I felt was my greatest weakness, a weakness that could hinder my overall grade. There were a plethora of weaknesses associated with my academic writing. To start I had great difficulty in creating a thesis statement, not only that I did not know the correct placement of the thesis statement. I am often repetitive in my writing I have hopes to improve this sooner rather than later.
