Writing practice platform - Journaly

I came across a really good site via this review:

The one skill I rarely (other than WeChat messages ) work on is writing, so for the next one month I’m challenging myself to change that. For the next 30 days I’m going to write everyday on an LTL class topic I have recently studied. Ie “Weddings” Hsk 4+, I will write something about the difference between American weddings and Chinese weddings.

Here’s a link to the site, it seems like a great place to practice writing and help other people with their language and its free(with optional paid premium):



Another great challenge :clap:

I think you are in the same boat as many Mandarin students. Writing probably comes last and only comes in the form of WeChat or phone based conversations.

Intrigued to hear how much progress you make in 30 days :slight_smile:

That’s a great challenge you’ve set for yourself! :100: :clap:
Our forum can actually be a great platform for you to practice your writing and engage with other learners. Why not create a post on the topic of “weddings” you mentioned, and write your thoughts about the differences between American and Chinese weddings in Chinese and English?. I’m sure many other students would be interested in reading your post.

Cool idea. Our native speakers could critique and feedback. Would also be nice to share with others also so we can all learn together :slight_smile:

Ok, I have started a Forum Topic called “LTL class writing practice”

Anyone please feel free to post your writing as well.

I’ve put my first one in there and it’s related to a class I took last week “Attending a Friend’s Wedding” HSK 4+

Journaly is a very cool concept, I don’t know if there is any other app/website like this one.

And created by no other than Robin MacPherson! I had a quick look and it looks like there is a wide range of topics available, do you know if there is a minimum number of words people have to write?

It is a really great concept. I don’t think there is any sort minimum.
