Overview

Any effective business writing course requires a strong online element. Business Writing takes an interactive approach to helping learners produce effective emails, letters, SMS and reports. The program is ideal for schools and colleges preparing their students for the workplace. Business Writing is enjoyable, thought-provoking and always practical.

Content

Business Writing focuses on the nuts and bolts of writing: the writing process, clarity, appropriacy, vocabulary and grammar. The topic matter is always up-to-date and relevant. (Should I use abbreviations in emails? Can I use jargon in a report to my workgroup? How do I keep my writing gender neutral?)

Approach

Identifying learning objectives. Each unit begins with an activity where students focus on objectives: those relating to the text type itself (e.g. organisation of a report); and the language they will need to write effectively (e.g. tenses in each section of a report).

Practice activities. Learners then work on activities based around audio lectures from teachers and authentic business texts.

Focus on grammar. Each unit includes a grammar section, covering, for example, prepositions, modals or contractions. These activities include presentation and practice.

Writing a document. Each of the ten units finishes with extensive writing activities, where learners write a report, an email, or another document based on a context built up over the unit.
