I found the peer editing task helpful because we can find the errors that we can't by other person. Also, we can hear new opinions from other person. In addition to that the people who is editing can also find new things. By editing others work, we learn things because we tend to use dictionaries to correct them.

I think the peer editing task is very helpful in better understanding how to write essays. The task provided me an opportunity of reconfirming the right structure of the concluding paragraph. In addition, by finding partner's grammer mistakes, I could also learn the grammer. It was good time to learn basics of English grammer again. Also, reading other person's English was helpful in getting new English words and phrases that I don't know. However, the task was very hard for me because it was necessary to have good English knowledge to edit partner's concluding paragraph. I was troubled many times with judging whether sentenses are right or not. Hence, it took much time to complete the peer editing task.

I found the peer editing task very helpful for two reasons. First I can improve my English skill by editing my partners essay. To edit partners essay, I should understand the content well. I can also learn new vocabularies or grammar, by editing my partners essay. Second, I can make my essay a better essay. By writing and editing only by myself cannot make the essay better. Reading my own essay, I cannot read it objectively. Because I read my essay subjectively, my writing would not improve. Having my essay read and editing by other people, I can find out something that I could not find.

I could know other ways of writing patterns. I want to get more experience like this to enhance my English skill.

I thought the peer editing task is so nice activity because I could read my partner's essay and compare to mine. That will make both mine and partner's better one. But it was difficult to find out 10 mistakes because there were only 4 sentences in my partner's conclusion. But that will be also helpful to improve my English skills.

I found peer editing task is very useful. The reason is that you can learn new style of writing from your partner's essay. English learners like us do not really have a chance to read someone else's writing usually. Even if we have a chance, that may be only native spekers writing, and it is too difficult for us to steal their skills becuase of complicated grammer or difficult vocabularies. However, in this class, our English are about the same level, so it is easier to read other student's essay. That way, we can steal new style of writing easily.

I thought Peer editing task was a nice opportunity to have a look at other peoples writing. It is because by having a look at other peoples paper, you can find something that you didn't have in your paper. And by having your paper checked by a person who you don't get checked usually, you can see some editing from different point of view. Also, by checking a paper by myself, I found it helpful to look back at my grammar knowledge. I'm not good at grammar. For that, it took time for me to check them. But by checking them, I think I learned a way to pay attention to grammar. It was also good to think what is exactly wrong with the grammar when correcting, which you need your knowledge for grammar. When I found some awkward sentence, I had to think of a better way to say them. For that I had to use my brain and things I learned from the past to find a better way to say it.
