IMPROVE YOUR BUSINESS WRITING IN ENGLISH

The course begins by focusing on business writing and specifically grammar. If you work in a professional environment, your clients and co-workers are all educated and know grammar well. Few things make you look less professional than poor grammar. After the first part of the course, you will understand grammar rules to make your business writing clear and professional.

After you master grammar skills, you can apply your business writing skills to many common professional tasks like memo writing, writing text messages, writing email to managers, co-workers, or potential clients.

BASIC COMMUNICATION SKILLS YOU WILL GAIN

The course begins with simple written communication skills like grammar and writing correct and effective sentences that communicate their ideas. We’ll also focus on effective word choices and common writing pitfalls to help you immediately avoid many common writing errors you could be making without realizing.

INTERMEDIATE COMMUNICATION SKILLS YOU WILL GAIN

Once you gain solid grammar skills, the course will teach you slightly more advanced communication skills like writing email, instant messages, and day-to-day communication within your team.

ADVANCED COMMUNICATION SKILLS YOU WILL GAIN

After the course gets past the intermediate communication skills, you will learn advanced communication skills like writing reports and business proposals. You will also learn how to pitch your business, create presentations that have great storytelling, and much more.
