    I would highly recommend you to read a lot in Spanish. It's the best way to improve your Spanish writting skills

    •use variety of vocabulary ( fancy but not too fancy )
    •almost no grammar or spelling errors.
    •add adverbs , adjectives and opinions.
    •connectives
    That's about it apart from tenses and other obvious things.

    Que te vaya bien el examen 😊

    Idioms are always good e.g...

    ''taparse los ojos'' - to turn a blind eye, or ''costar un ojo de la cara'' - to cost a fortune

    "Taparse los ojos" literally means to cover your eyes. To turn a blind eye is "hacer la vista gorda".
