Write & Improve

Principal function(s): Course management

Write & Improve is a free online tool developed by the University of Cambridge to help English language learners improve their writing skills. Students choose their level and then receive a selection of writing tasks that match it. Once the assignment has been submitted, the tool automatically assigns an appropriate grade and gives feedback on the writing. Students can later incorporate it into the original text. They can also create their own writing assignments.

Evaluation: Write & Improve is a useful tool since it allows English learners to practice grammar, vocabulary, and general writing skills independently, anywhere, and at any time, without the physical presence of a teacher. This tool provides students with hundreds of different writing tasks at different CEFR levels. After receiving feedback on their writing, students can modify their original work and re-submit it to see how the recommended changes have improved the quality of their writing.

Cost: Free for students. Free trial period of 2 months for teachers and institutions, allowing a maximum of 200 students to try the tool before purchasing a license.
