Need to write a letter to the immigration authorities or the bank? Or maybe an email to your child’s teacher? Or perhaps you want to post to a Facebook group? These can be major challenges for those who do not write English as a first language. Practical Writing helps non-native speakers deal confidently with all these situations.
Practical Writing helps ESL library members write for life (emails, social media, official letters, making notes at work and so on). The other half of the program is for those who are following English courses or preparing for English tests for immigration, employment and education. This covers essays, reports, avoiding plagiarism and checking your work.
