critique my reflection paper

first of all, im an ESL English student so bear with my mistakes


I have been an English 101 student for about 3 weeks now, and over the course of my stay I have learned a lot more that I thought possible. I learned to write, to express myself, how to think for myself, and how to find answers to the things that I don’t know. Most importantly I have learned how to improve my writing skills.
When I started English 101 class, I thought I was going to spend most time reading books and doing lectures but I was completely wrong. We are asked to wrote an essay just too see how do we write our essays and I think I did pretty well. Professor Battle told us that are focus is on writing so students who are going to English 102 will be prepared. Also this is summer semester, class is really tough and intense, and so I need to work hard and do everything in advance.
Also, I have learned that 50/50 class is better than the traditional 100% face to face class. This class is much easier and time is flexible because I have plenty of time to do my homework online at home. I’m also taking a biology class so I need to balance my time for everything.
I know my ability to write, express my ideas, thoughts and knowledge has grown every time I attend this class. I have always struggled to put my thoughts on paper in a manner that is correct according to assignments. My remarks have always something do with wrong grammar, sentence run-on and punctuations. These are the things that I’m going to work on and improve in the next coming class. The paper that I wrote on the first in class essay was not good. I did not give good examples and didn’t formulate good ideas. What I did was I just applied what I learned in my previous English course and what I had found in my research. My previous English courses have really helped to get rid of my bad writing habits and helped me to write better papers and think of better ideas.
There are a couple of things that I need to improve in order to be good at writing, and I hope I can achieve this by the end of semester. I hope to learn more ways to on how to improve and learn different styles of writing.

  2. My first suggestion is that you proof read your writing. I find that letting is sit overnight first is helpful.

    Secondly, it is somewhat cheezy, as if you are trying to impress your instructor. Examples: your specifics on your "bad writing habits" is non-existent; "a couple of things" another example. To improve in anything, you have to address specifics. Including specifics (and avoiding vague generalities) would greatly add to self-reflection, if that is the purpose of this.
    I am reminded of the couple who went to marriage counseling, and each wanted to just talk about the other's "issues".

  3. can you point out where are my mistakes please

  4. Bobpursley's advice to let it sit overnight and then proofread it is great advice.

    After you've done that and corrected the mistakes you find, please repost it.
