Improve your English by writing

IDIY advocates a new way to learn!

At IDIY, we are advocating for a new way to learn English — by writing. Writing-based learning can accommodate people who may not feel confident to speak, people who want to increase their opportunities for language output, people who want to learn at their own pace, people who want to learn on the go, and people with many other preferences. Writing-based English education is a new and flexible way to learn English that is ideal for long-term learning. This is because it is both adaptable and easy to continue.

We have many users who attend English language schools and also use IDIY to expand their vocabulary or review materials from classes. As English lessons can often feel like they fly by, writing about what you have learned in class is an effective way to make your learning more effective. Many of our users have also built an enjoyable habit of summarizing and writing about their day in English, with our diary service.

We invite you to come experience the joy of learning English through writing at IDIY!


Corrections from an IDIY instructor

Customer’s text
Because I am tired, I seem to be able to sleep well.

Corrections from the instructor
I am tired, so I should be able to sleep well.
With our Advanced Text Correction
Explanations and comments from the instructor are included.

Explanations/comments from the instructor
1) When we use “seem(s) to,” it does not refer to the future: it means that we have looked at something and seen how it looks in the present. What you want to say here is the future–”When I go to sleep, I think I will be able to sleep well.” That’s one possible phrasing, and I’ve offered another, “I should be able to sleep well.” You could also say “I’ll probably sleep well” or “I expect to sleep well,” among others.
2) In order not to begin two sentences in a row with “because,” I took it out here and changed the sentence to use “so.” The meaning is the same.
