How WordQ helps us succeed in English writing
Author: Fergie Feng
As an ESL student, I used to be very difficult to write when I started studying in Canada, especially in academic writing. For me, the three most useful tools for improving my writing are Google Translate, Grammarly, and WordQ.
1. Word Prediction related to the professional field
I always use Google Translate for translating my sentences into my mother tongue to check if I have expressed the right meaning. For WordQ, it's like a versatile input method that modifies and reminds me of the correct spelling and predicts the potential words I will use. It should be mentioned that this “multifunctional input method” can set different topics to help with academic writing. For example, when I write a report about accounting, I can set the topic to accounting to make it easier for me to get the correct terminology. This is very helpful to me when I lack accounting knowledge.
2. Read function
The most useful way for students to check for errors is to read the article. WordQ has a great feature that reads every sentence when you're done. Otherwise, you can choose to select the entire article when you are done. It not only helped me to check my mistakes but also helped me to pronounce.
After that, I will use Grammarly to check my grammar mistakes. You may ask why I do not check it before I use the read function of WordQ. It is important for students to develop a habit to check mistakes and learn from mistakes by ourselves instead of relying on Grammarly.
This is all I want to share with the ESLs who are studying in Canada and I hope it will help you. By the way, with the help of three great software, I got A+ in the writing class.
