BUSINESS WRITING

 

Effective business writing isn’t a skill that most people find easy! This Business English programme aims to make writing a manageable task by following a logical process in terms of what you write and how you write it.

The programme is highly practical and fun, and covers every aspect of writing from word choice, suitability and tone, to document layout and content development. It focuses on suggesting easy to implement solutions for common grammar problems, and offers plenty of practice to master these new techniques. You are shown how to ‘grab’ your reader's attention and to eliminate nonessential words from your writing. Email etiquette is discussed, and useful guidelines given regarding this, and business letter writing.

This is an intensive programme, but you will undoubtedly leave with a fresh perspective, and practical answers for improving your use of English for business. The results are tangible, easily measured and learner-centered. Although the programme is aimed largely at people who speak English as a second language, it is equally valuable to first language speakers.  

This Business English programme covers writing for business purposes in terms of accuracy, conciseness and persuasiveness. It focuses on writing style, common language errors, appropriate word selection and email etiquette.
