All my lecturers and essays give me the same feedback..'improve clarity'..'writing doesn't make sense' ..'logical English please..'

I am really depressed about it and the more I think about it the more the more self-conscious I am getting . Could someone help me please?

Read more and your English will improve.

My teacher told us this and he was 100% correct.

have you always gotten this sort of feedback or is it just now at uni? if they’re writing vague feedback like “improve clarity” then i’d ask to have a one to one session where you go over the essay in greater detail to find out how you could improve. Never be self conscious about your english if you’re taking steps to get better!

Is English your first language? If not and you are at uni then they have English courses for international students.

Plan your essays.

Write in shirt paragraphs and short sentences. One thought per sentence.
