Better Business Writing in One Week


Business letters, memos, e-mails, proposals...not everyone's a writer, yet every businessperson is expected to write -- a scary prospect for professionals without formal writing training!

Fear no more -- you're only one week away from clearer, more confident writing. This unique course includes one work-week (five days) of daily lessons, designed explicitly for business professionals. Students learn about grammar, clarity, precision, organization and style, then apply their knowledge to write better business letters, e-mails, memos and more.

Practical lessons, examples and activities draw from real-world business situations that professionals face every day, helping all students gain confidence and accuracy in their written communications.


Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:

  • Differentiate a complete sentence from a fragment.
  • Determine which case to use in a given situation ("I" or "me," "who" or "whom").
  • Identify and correct misplaced modifiers.
  • Choose proper punctuation.
  • Differentiate between the plural and the possessive.
  • Choose correct words and express themselves more accurately.
  • Organize their writing logically.
  • Get to the point of the message
  • Write clearer, more accurate memos, letters, e-mail messages, and other pieces of business writing.


  • Each lesson includes activities and/or quizzes to assess the students' knowledge.

  • After the final lesson, students will take a multiple-choice exam.
