Hi dreamer red

As someone studying Chinese all I can advise is to work hard, read a lot, write a lot, and get help from native speakers to correct you. You maybe able to find a language buddy so you can teach them your language, and they can teach you in return. Unfortunately, I have never discovered any short cuts!

Good luck

Practice I would guess! I've not had to do too much writing in the languages I'm studying because they're ancient languages so composition is more of a "bonus" but I definitely think it's one of the harder skills (i.e. assuming English is your first language, English to target language composition/translation) so worth putting in the time to practice. I do think composition helps a lot in translation from target language into first language though, as you have to think a bit more abstractly about things when trying to write them in the language which helps when going the other direction!

Try keeping a journal in that language, to make writing in it more of a habit. This will help make you aware of gaps in your vocabulary, and will be a record you can look back on to see how you’ve improved.
