"Best Practices" is a new fancy term for using techniqueswith a provenhistory of working well. There are a couple of thempertaining to personal statement writing that are missed surprisinglyoften. Here are a few of the biggies that will help.
Let's clarify from the very beginning that we are NOT talkingabout experimental writing styles here. You are not going to write intheatrical dialogue or trochaic feet or an AABB rhyme scheme or haikuor in cartoon bubbles. The personal statement is an essay, not a pieceof performance art.
How to Write a Personal Statement (Essay, Motivation Letter)
The personal statement should be between 800 and 1000 words long, word processed, font size 12 and double spaced on A4 paper. As long as your statement fulfils the above criteria, it will be acceptable (disregard the maximum page limit on the application form)*. Further to Point 2, it should be devoid of spelling and grammar errors. It should flow well. It should sound good when you read it. You do not want to be remembered as the candidate who couldn't tell the difference between "its" and "it's". Remember, you're applying to teach English to Japanese students. It won't reflect well on you if you don't have adequate command of the English language yourself. Have other people review and edit your essay, preferably trained professionals (like English or Journalism professors). If you don't have professionals, use who you can find. Just make sure that you have this essay as polished as you can make it before you submit.
