Let's talk about the role of writing in language learning. For most people learning English, the goal is to use the language to communicate. Learners go study grammar. But even if you spend a lot of time learning about grammar, you have to practice using it. In most cases it's easier to practice new grammar in writing than to practice new grammar in speaking. The reason it's easier to practice writing before speaking is because when you write, you have time to think about the grammar rules you are practicing. When you're speaking English, you have to think fast so you use old grammar you already know and rarely practice the new grammar that you need time to think about. For this reason, writing assignments are great opportunities to practice English. If you copy someone else's work, you miss the practice opportunity. Need help writing an essay?
