My biggest problem is most of the reading I do is in French, so my English sentence structure is way more on of conversational english rather than formal english. English is my mother tongue, but I haven't had to do any writing in it for 3 years. I got my first english paper back with a lot of 'awkward sentence' written all over it. I end up doing a lot of translating from french to english when I'm having to write. Weird I know... I have spent the last 2-3 years learning how to say what I want in the simplest terms possible, which is now coming through in my english writing.
Thanks for the book suggestion. I will look for it!
