Business Writing Skills

 

 

This two-day course is designed for people who have to write reports, agreements, letters, e-mails and other documents in English.

The course will be tailored to meet the needs of the individual participants.  We do this by adapting and using samples of the participants’ own written documents as a central part of the course material. During the course the participants will do individual work and receive personal coaching.
