TIPS: - Do NOT write your text in English first - Do NOT use Google Translate for whole sentences - Do NOT learn something you wouldn't be able to translate
DO write something basic to start with, but which is the result of YOUR thinking and YOUR putting the words together. It will be much easier to learn, and you will be able to add a few details and more complex vocabulary here and there when you already know it well.
BE CLEVER: Use bits of class work or homework that have been marked by your teacher, use key expressions that you have come across in exercises or that you can find in your textbook. YOUR part will be to re-arrange them, copy and paste, link ideas into a fluid and coherent little text. So it will be YOUR work, even though you may have copied sentences from books.
