Grammar for Business Writing 27 June 2012

Business and Management Skills

In business, correct English grammar is essential in communicating effectively, in both speech and writing. The Grammar for Business Writing course highlights the usage problems associated with contemporary grammar. Grammar refers to rules that allow us to organise our words and sentences into coherent, meaningful language. This course, therefore, explores the major areas of English grammar.
The course addresses the three issues underlying all errors of grammatical usage: the idea of Standard English, the effects of language change on English grammar, and the effects of language attitudes on our perception of "correct" English. It will be of interest to anyone who wishes to increase his or her confidence in preseting English clearly, and improve his or her editing and proofreading abilities.
This course also addresses the challenges faced by writers in business writing, and covers the essential units in the English grammar that will help the participant communicate clearly. Participants will be able to use the different resources for checking their grammar accurately, as well as identify with the real examples that they come across in their everyday writing.
