This learner centric programme has been designed for busy professionals who want a fast, easy way to brush up on grammar, spelling, editing, proofreading and business writing skills.

We have narrowed down hundreds of English grammar and usage rules to "the most important," focusing on those contemporary grammar skills that will make the biggest, most immediate impact on your written business communication.

Whether you prepare formal business reports, proofread business letters, send e-mail to customers or clients, or jot memos to your boss, the skills you'll learn will add professional polish - and accuracy - to every sentence you write!

Say goodbye to your grammar anxiety once and for all! You'll discover dozens of easy tricks and tips for remembering grammar basics - tools you'll use for the rest of your life!

Be "in the know" on the newest standards for business usage, including non-sexist language. Find out how to handle those sticky gender-pronoun issues and learn which words and terms may be considered insensitive or offensive.

Avoid making embarrassing written errors that could damage your credibility. Grammar blunders and spelling errors scream "unprofessional!" Such mistakes can tarnish your image fast. This workshop will give you the important grammar skills you need to succeed, plus the confidence that comes from knowing that your written communication is error-free.
