There are many kinds of ESL Writing tasks, such as free writing, creative writing, and guided writing (i.e., an essay).
I like to get my students started with free writing at the beginning of each class to encourage creativity and relieve pressure of making mistakes.
Write as much as possible! Aim for quantity over quality. If you can’t think of anything, then simply write, “I can’t think of anything to write.”
Looking words up in the dictionary takes a lot of time. If you don’t know a word, they write the word in your language, try to explain it in a different way, or skip it and move on.
The goal is to write as much as possible without worrying about grammar mistakes or vocabulary. Don’t worry about spelling, word usage, etc. Just write!
Free writing is a time for you to write. Don't talk until the Free speaking time is finished.
