How do you know what style of writing to use when writing a paper?

Answer:

In order to figure out the style of writing to use while writing a paper, one must first reflect on who they are writing for. This includes figuring out who the audience is and then analyze them. Are you writing a literature paper for a professor? If so, you must write in an academic and formal style.

Question:

I think my note-taking skills could be better. What can I do to achieve this?

Answer:

It is important to be organized and attentive while taking notes. Planning an outline to use for formatting your notes will help you take notes more efficiently and study more efficiently. Do not cramp your notes either, because it will be difficult to study them later on. If a professor gives you a paper with notes already on it, take notes anyway. Writing the material down will help you absorb it. Review your notes before and after class to help retain the material.

Question:

What is the difference between English speaking and English writing?

Answer:

Spoken English is generally less formal than written English. This is because while speaking English, we tend to become lazy with our speaking and forget to include syllables or jumble words together (such as "lemme" instead of "let me" or "gonna" instead of "going to"). When writing in English, one must make sure to use proper grammar. This is especially important for academic writing.
