Description

Full Description

Many times in business, your written words are your "calling card" to customers, vendors, and even associates and management within your own company. How do you feel about what you write:
  • Do you feel that because English is your second language, you don't communicate as well as others?
  • Do you find your weak writing skills leave you at a disadvantage when it comes to advancement?
  • Do you feel you need to improve your understanding of written English?

Welcome to ESL for Business- Special Documents. This is one of three ESL For Business courses which target different kinds of written communications that you use everyday: e-mail, letters and memos, and those special documents particular to your job. You can take all the courses in the series or only those that fit your needs.

What Makes This Course Unique?

You might say, "what's different about this course from other ESL courses you can take online?"

Unlike "one size fits all" courses, the lessons in this course are tailored to your problem areas. In other courses, you may only view a lesson and do self-study exercises. In this course, you have access to a teacher-tutor. In addition to doing self-study exercises in a textbook, you will have assignments that reflect real-world situations and someone who will read over your work and provide feedback on it. The teacher-tutor will assign you readings and grammar exercises to do based on the areas in which YOU need improvement rather than just a standard reading/exercise that everybody does. You may bring to class one document to work on and revise it over the four lessons, or you may submit a different document for each lesson.
