I know there are many experts here who can help the newbie. I would love to write many articles but one problem is i m not that good at writing. Can you please suggest the best ways to improve the skills.
No offense please.
The below is a free online tool for checking your spelling. Once done checking the spelling, you have the option to then have the tool check your grammar and offer suggestions. This may help you out.
Thank you so much with the help of the tool i just added new hub - <link snipped>
You are welcome worklife.
Using this tool: http://www.wordcounttool.com/
I see your word count on this newly published hub is 193 words. I would suggest, as well as others, that your hub(s) be a minimum of 500 words for better ranking in the search engines.
As for "teaching" one how to write, however, I simply do not have the time to work with people one on one. Perhaps viewing other's hubs will give you some better ideas of lay-outs, word count, photos and such. Also, links within a hub, as long as they are related, will help you out. Not a ton of links, but three to six depending upon the length of the hub.
I have already applied for Apprenticeship program. Hopefully i ill get approval email.
"when reviewing applicants, we will be looking for a consistent stream of newly-published Hubs and/or an already existing blog, website, or collection of published online work. We will be reviewing this work for proper grammar and punctuation, as strong writing skills are essential for success, and the Apprenticeship Program does not cover basic writing skills."

worklife, the more you write the better your writing will become. I would second what Marcy suggested and search HP. I've seen some great hubs written on how to improve your writing. Find a few of these hubs and read them. They may help, too. Good Luck on HP.
Welcome to the site! There are several great hubs about writing skills - I highly recommend anything cclitgirl has published about writing; she has excellent and detailed hubs on very specific grammar and writing issues.
Just do a search on HP for 'writing' 'write,' 'grammar, etc. and start reading the hubs that pop up. Then compare your own writing to the style suggestions and grammar rules in the hubs you find.
Read (and read, and read again) the best writers you can find on this site. Pay attention to how they structure their sentences, the way phrases are constructed, and various other elements of the English language. Also pay attention (as mentioned here already) to the length of the 'good' hubs as well as the layout and visual impact of the entire hub.
Be sure your hubs have at least one good photo that's legally used. Use the capsules to add additional text in separate chunks. The reason for this is that it breaks up the hub visually and is easier and more inviting to read. Add capsules for maps, polls, videos or other 'extras' to make your hubs more interesting. This helps draw the reader want to spend more time on your hub page (which will improve rankings in Google).
It is not easy to write in a language you didn't grow up using (and actually, some people who are native English speakers simply don't have a knack for writing). Many people would like to write because they feel they have something to say, and indeed, they probably do have great things to convey. But writing is like any other skill - you have to learn the right way things are done, and you have to practice a lot to hone your skills.
Best of luck! I haven't checked your hubs yet, so perhaps you're already doing many of these things. I just wanted to mention a few things it helps to know as you get started.
There is plenty of hubs to help with writing skills.
How to improve your writing!
