Revising is Fun
by Jun Harada
Many students often have trouble expressing themselves through writing due to their poor vocabulary and low confidence. One way to overcome this is to be witty and use simple language. Moreover they should learn to enjoy writing by exploring many possibilities to express the same message. In other words, we should teach them a fun aspect of revising their writing.
