    Hello,
    English is not my naive language, I learned it from internet, and institutes.
    But, still I think my English is not that good to write articles for my future blogging website?

    Any way to check the quality of my articles.

    And how to improve my English to write quality articles for site.

    Thanks.

    Write a 300 word article right here on the thread and let others rate it, and give you advice.

    There are quite a lot of courses online you could utilize to better your English spelling, grammar etc.

    You could write articles for websites in your native language, not just english.

    Hire a teacher for one month and tell her that you wish to learn how to write proper articles. After that you'll have to spend one month in learning and maybe if you are a fast learner, you will be able to do it.

    I would recommend preparing for tests like TOIEC and TOEFL. This will train you not just in writing but makes you better in all.

    Maybe you should start with FCE and then go to CAE. You need to start from somewhere after all

    The FK test is literally crap, especially for online articles.

    With that, the more eloquently you write, the closer you are to like 30-40 score. If you write short, direct sentences that a four year old can digest but the rest of the world would find annoying enough to sayonara off your page, you can get to like a 70-80.

    Here's an article about it: http://www.searchenginejournal.com/readability-versus-robot-flesch-reading-test/85293/

    Use the turdhat method and steal them from other people's websites. Apparently it will get you far in life.

    You would be better off learning the language for long term benefits. Do is word by word until you are proficient. All the best.

    Just write and practice every day. Using a spellchecker and asking a native speaker to proof read should also help.

    I am a huge fan of Duolingo and Memrise, both for free and they both are an immense help to me learning foreign languages. I have tried Rosetta, don't waste your money, these two sites will help better. The way they are set up i.e. the progression and levels, motivate you to want to learn more. Hope these help!

    same for me
    I check grammar at hemingwayapp .com (it's free)
    if not enough, I hire a freelancer (a native US person) to proofread it at peopleperhour

    It is very simple, you can hire someone to write for you or you can visit site iwriter - this is really good for Amazon Afflilate!
