There is no denying the importance of writing。 Without it， it is difficult to pass any examination no matter how much money or success one has。 In order to maintain our English level and pass exams that are as fulfilling as possible， it is important to take some steps。
Obviously good writing skills are important when your job involves writing， be it as a journalist， paralegal or public relations professional – that goes without saying。 If you are employed for your writing skills， having “good” writing skills is a job requirement。 However， more professions require good writing skills than those traditionally associated with writing。 Any time a profession requires written communication， writing skills become important。 Whether you are messaging a colleague， writing to your manager， or crafting the company newsletter， your writing skills can boost or hinder your career easily， even if you do not have a “writing” profession。 Basically， writing skills make a difference in how you come across。
Based on what I have discussed above， it is not difficult to identify the vital importance of writing， and there are a number of things that we can do to develop our writing ability。 The essential thing， however， is to find one way that fits you most and consist on it。
With our society becoming increasingly open and diversified, the speaking ability is of growing importance in our life and work. In the past, people who were not eloquent could become successful when they were diligent enough. However, now, speaking ability can make a person stand out much quicker in their workplace and social life.
The reasons why speaking ability is so important are as follows. To begin with, people of excellent speaking ability are generally more charming and approachable because they tend to be more friendly and frank. Besides, every walk of life has become more cooperative; therefore, more communicative peole have higher working efficiency. For example, my brother used to be a quiet person. Two years ago, I was told that he was fired by his company because he could not get along with his colleagues. After that, he attended a speaking training class and spent a year in improving his eloquence. Now, he has become more confident and found a new job with generous salary.
In order to develop speaking ability, listening to good speeches and famous talk shows can help us imitate great lecturers’ style of speaking and ways of expressing themselves. Meanwhile, it is about time that we spent more time with our friends rather than with our phones, sharing with them our real feelings and thoughts.
Writing is a skill tested in all major standardized educational tests, including CET-4/6, TOEFL, IELTS, and so on. But there has been no shortage of reports from different sources that a large proportion of students, especially college students, have ill-performed writing skills, earning relatively low scores in tests as well as on school assignments.
In my opinion, writing is a crucial skill for students. It is a reliable way by which one impart knowledge, suggest plans, fight for one’s idea, refute a theory, and many other purposes. So if you are good at writing, then you are able to fulfill the tasks above mentioned more effectively. Besides, noted writes, be they novelists, poets or editors-in-chief enlighten every generation of readers with new experiences. That’s why readers today still discuss on and share their opinions on great books such as A Dream in Red Mansions.
In a nutshell, few skills are more important than writing in the current society. So my suggest would be that every one, college students particular, takes time to hone writing skills, get more practice in it, so that we can live up to the social expectation of becoming socialist successors.
