I am weak at forming good sentences in English, I have poor word-choice and I am unable to express myself in a fast and coherent way. I don't know what to do to solve this as I don't know where the problem lies.

In conversations, I sometimes pause to think of which word to use in order to form a fine sentence. This is very unpractical in real life (and the internet, too)

This is an example of a neat internet biography I found (on the internet):

"I'm SKa21, one of the few names I go by on the internet. I really enjoy video games and I am a fan of a few different things! Unfortunately, I don't tend to add anyone anymore unless I get to know you first!

This paragraph is neat and it conveys a lot about this person. It's summarized and the person who wrote this probably took 1 minute typing it. If I were to write this I would spend a long time writing it.

So how can I improve my fluency in expressing myself? How do I get efficient at expressing myself in a fast, neat and "poetic" way?

    1. Practice. Many native speakers are lousy writers, and should rewrite a few times, too. English is very flexible, which means there are lots of ways to say things incorrectly. 2. Separate questions. – Adam Jun 29 '17 at 21:59

    Just my opinion: It's hard to say without hearing you speak, but perhaps be on the look out for Redundancies (2 or more words that say the same thing). For example: "...picking the exact perfect words for the sentence..." 'exact' and 'perfect' are very similar words - no need to extend the length of the sentence by using both. As Adam said, English is very flexible and the more you use it the more you'll settle into naturally using particular words in particular situations. – MeltingDog Jun 29 '17 at 22:25

  • How would you do this in your own native language -- how do you avoid redundancy and repetition? It's the same in English. You need more vocabulary, more familiarity with common structures, and constant exposure to good writing. – Andrew Jun 29 '17 at 23:00
