Our Basic Grammar and Writing Skills for Business course is focused on providing the business writer who has some usage problems with help in making his or her writing more clear, effective, and correct.
This course is designed with techniques and strategies for improving the writer's clarity, as well as teaching proper grammar usage, and contains assignments, practice activities, and written competency exams.
Similar to how college classes work, you do your assigned work on your own, then submit it to your instructor, who grades, comments upon, and returns the assignment to you. The instructor will coach you in this way until you master the skills. FYI, your instructor is also available via email or phone throughout the "semester".
