English is a rich reflection of culture, and the differences between typical British and American pronunciation and spelling can be confusing. In my opinion, however, this dialectical diversity is a sign of the language’s relevance and evolution. As I work with writing, I try to pay attention to what words should be used in what context. I had the experience of writing on a topic related to the history of the British Empire, and I tried to use primarily dialectical features of English characteristic of the British Isles. It seemed inappropriate not to consider the stylistic aspects of the culture I was describing. I do not know that this is possible in other languages, but I find it an exciting feature in English.
I like that writing allows me to develop my vocabulary and learn new things. As I mentioned before, the cultural underpinnings of English are of particular interest to me. However, I feel a distinct knowledge gap in how to create stylistically and visually beautiful writing. Filling text with epithets and metaphors is excellent, but I am unsure how to do it organically. I want to spend more time making English writing richer and not simplify it into boring sentences. Writing assignments help me do this: I think this format is great for structuring thoughts and getting deeper into the text.
Writing, in general, is a great start for future and career because it characterizes a person in many ways, from handwriting to speech patterns. If I suddenly become a writer and get involved in literary texts, I would like my readers to recognize my style. It seems to me that English literature and writing classes foster such skills. They have primarily allowed me to visualize why writing resonates warmly with me.
