Use websites like Perfect English. Also try to get used to writing paragraphs. If you are studying texts make sure you always have quotes to back up all your points

Also I know it seems obvious but READ. Read as much as you can this can help a lot especially in the creative writing section and also it is really fun.

Read fiction, learn specific literary terms (alliteration, metaphor, enjambment, plosives etc) and practice writing analytical paragraphs and paragraphs of creative writing.

When learning terminologies, think about what effects they have and why an author would include them. You have lots of time so don’t worry too much and you being here and actively asking this question shows you will try your best and that you have a good attitude towards your studies
