A Letter to Myself

Goal 1 : To enhance my writing skill

Goal 2 : To be able to write my thesis perfectly

Goal 3 : Able to pass an IELTS exam

Dear Me,

     This is a letter that I wrote for myself with three missions that I want to accomplish in taking Academic writing class. I will not open this letter until I finish this semester and see whether I have accomplished the mission or not. The mission that I want to accomplish are to enhance my writing skills, To be able to write my thesis perfectly , and able to pass an IELTS test Now, I will elaborate further on why I chose these mission and how I plan to accomplish them.

     First, I want to enhance my writing skills.  It’s important for me to have adequate skills of academic writing. For me, writing well can make people quicker to trust you. When you write something down, it becomes more actionable than an idea in your head. Like C.S Lewis said “You can make anything by writing”. Now, I plan to exercise my academic writing.

     Next, I want to be able write my thesis perfectly. As a student of 8th semester, I am busy preparing for my thesis by studying the research method. By the end of this semester, I will starting to write my thesis. I want to have a better understanding about the structure, key, and points of the academic writings. By studying english IV, it will help for me to write my thesis impressively.

     Finally, I need to be able to pass the IELTS test. I have seen students literally trembling in uncertainty when asked to take an IELTS test. Doubting their abilities for no apparent reason, they believe that passing the IELTS exam is just not possible. Threfore, learning English IV can help me to learn about writing to prepare my IELTS test. Then, i am interested in studying abroad. In fact, many universities worldwide accept IELTS test results. That’s why, to be able pass IELTS test and also with good score, i need to improve my english skill by taking english IV subject.

     In conclusion, I have set three goals for myself. Even though I will face some difficulties to achieve it, I will keep work hard to achieve it because those three are important to support my future career.

    Hi Farhan, I’ve read your post here. I like how you write about your goal. From my opinion, need to check the structure, like in the beginning of your paragraph, some paragraph you use “TAB” but some don’t. maybe to make it better, should check about it, also in sentences “To be able to write my thesis perfectly” might be “Able to write my thesis perfectly”. Overall, it’s a good post, hope I can help you by giving my opinion

    Hi Farhan! What a great letter you have made up there!
    I also have the same goal with you especially the third goal which is to pass the IELTS test.
    I notice some grammatical errors in your writing that in my opinion need to be corrected. Those are:
    1. Paragraph 1: “To be able to write my thesis perfectly , and able to pass an IELTS test Now,…” >>> “To be able to write my thesis perfectly, and able to pass an IELTS test. Now,…”
    2. Paragraph 3: “Next, I want to be able write my thesis perfectly.” >>> “Next, I want to be able to write my thesis perfectly.”
    3. Paragraph 3 last sentence: “it will help for me to write my thesis impressively.” >>> “it will help me to write my thesis impressively.”
    4. Paragraph 4: “they believe that passing the IELTS exam is just not possible.” >>> “they believe that passing the IELTS exam is just impossible.”
    I think that’s all but overall, your writing was wonderful.
    Can’t wait to see your next post, Sabar!

Maybe it will be better ig you change “Threfore, learning English IV can help me to learn about writing to prepare my IELTS test. Then, i am interested in studying abroad.” to ” By learning English IV, I hope it can help me to learn more about writing to prepare my IELTS test because I am interested in studying abroad and many universities accept IELTS test results as…”
    But overall it is a great post and I can’t wait to see your next post

    Hallo Farhan !
    What a great post you made here for ur future self! I hope and I believe that you can reach those goals.
    You made great points supported by strong reasons, however I would like to propose some changes.
    First please pay attention to punctuation, and capital letters.
    Second, you may use “I will start writing my thesis…” in your 2nd goal paragraph
    Third, you may add some facts to strengthen your point.
    Overall, u did a great job Farhan !

    Hi Farhan! I’ve read your post and it’s great.
    Here, I’ve got some suggestion for you, like use Capitalization on “English IV” and also
    “worldwide accept IELTS test results” —> “worldwide accepts IELTS test results”
    I think that’s all from me. Keep it up bro!

Looking forward to your next post☺

    HI Farhan,
    nice post you’ve made, my advice would be:
    – adding “To” after “able” on ” Next, I want to be able write my thesis perfectly.”
    – use “Therefore” on “Threfore, learning English IV can help me to learn”
    – use “start” on “I will starting to write my thesis”
    overall it’s a nice point you have your letter. keep writing!

    Hi Farhan. I’ve read your post and its amazing. I can easily understand what you’re trying to say. However, I would like to suggest something. I think its better if you delete the word “the” before “Research method” on paragraph 3. But overall, you did a great job. Keep it up!

    A Letter to Myself (REVISED PARAGRAPH)

    Dear Me,

    This is a letter that I wrote for myself with three missions that I want to accomplish in taking Academic writing class. I will not open this letter until I finish this semester and see whether I have accomplished the mission or not. The mission that I want to accomplish are to enhance my writing skills, To be able to write my thesis perfectly , and able to pass an IELTS test Now, I will elaborate further on why I chose these missions and how I plan to accomplish them.

    First, I want to enhance my writing skills. It’s important for me to have adequate skills of academic writing. For me, writing well can make people easier to trust you. When you write something down, it becomes more actionable than an idea in your head. Like C.S Lewis said “You can make anything by writing”. Now, I plan to exercise my academic writing.

    Next, I want to be able to write my thesis perfectly. As a student of 8th semester, I am busy preparing for my thesis by studying research method. By the end of this semester, I will start to write my thesis. I want to have a better understanding about the structure, key, and points of the academic writings.

    Finally, I need to be able to pass the IELTS test. I have seen students literally trembling in uncertainty when asked to take an IELTS test. Doubting their abilities for no apparent reason, they believe that passing the IELTS exam is just not possible. Therefore, learning English IV can help me to learn more about writing to prepare my IELTS test because i am interested in studying abroad. Based on research, if your objective is to migrate to an English speaking country for work or training reasons, while the Academic IELTS would be a better option for you is your intention is to study in an English speaking country. That’s why, to be able pass IELTS test and also with good score, i need to improve my english skill by taking english IV subject.

    In conclusion, I have set three goals for myself. Even though I will face some difficulties to achieve it, I will keep work hard to achieve it because those three are important to support my future career.
