Vague, undigested, and what you mean ????!!! these some examples of the feedback that I received I really don't know what's wrong.
when I was learn English they told me good writing is linked with reading skills. I start reading but still I didn't thing my writing is improved.
I really appreciate your help and advises.

I don't want to sound discouraging but you must sort out your grammar as a priority. Just in this short post we have the following (I've put the corrections in bold italic type):

"These some examples - should be: "These are some examples"
"When I was learn English" - should be: "When I was learning English..."
"I start reading" - should be "I started reading"

And what about agreement of tenses in this bit:

"I didn't thing my writing is improved" should be - "I don't think my writing has improved".

Your "advises" is a verb; you need the noun: advice which is always singular.

So your first step to improving your English writing has to be improving your grammar - and particularly your use of tenses!

My first language is Arabic. I think it has an impact in my English writing. I usually think in my first language then translate it in English which as they say is poor practice !!

Well at least you can write very easily understandable English, it has some errors but it's pretty clear what you are aiming to say. The poster above has put it very well on what you require improvement on.
