One way to spot improper grammar in your own writing is to read each sentence backwards (start with the last word and end with the first).This way, you won’t be fooled by how the words sound when you read them in your head.
You will learn more about the topic, and you will gain more vocabulary words to enrich the essay. Really explore the entire concept (both sides of the argument) before you write.
As an example, you might be writing an essay arguing that people should drink less coffee. Proper grammar is difficult for even the most fluent English speakers.
But as you prepare, having a side-by-side list of points can be helpful in developing your thesis.

For the example above, your primary list might include words like “books,” “reading” and “intelligent.” Your other “branched out” list might include “Harry Potter,” “reading by a fire” or “test scores.”This process will help expand your vocabulary over time.
Reading the text backwards make you focus on the rules of grammar instead of the flow of the sentence.
You might have learned a large number of fancy words when studying for an entrance exam.
