In the previous article I talked about the importance of having a clear structure to base your writing on, today I want to elaborate more on writing techniques and tips. I will continue writing about how to write better in Japanese as an ongoing series starting from 10 Basic writing tips
Every Japanese learner at some point need to improve their writing skills, I had this experience being able to fluently speak, but when it comes to writing things get a little bit difficult.
The hard part isn’t about writing itself nor grammar knowledge or vocabulary, actually it’s all about writing conventions and style.
I see fellow Japanese learners make mistakes not in using the language, but for instance, their choice of words in certain situations, or using the wrong collocation, or even using correct grammar.
To overcome this you need a high level of mastery, which takes time and a lot of experience. So I want to share some of my limited experience in working in a Japanese company and reading and writing tens of emails on a daily basis.
