Fundamentals of Written Communication

Hours: 3.00 | Estimated Cost: $139.00

Successful written communication requires a strong command of language, including the types of phrasing and sentence structures that are problematic for many people. This seminar is not a review of English 101, but rather, we’ll focus only on the subtle grammar errors that invade our written communication. Specifically, we’ll address subject-verb agreement problems, learn how to avoid vague and faulty pronoun references, and eliminate redundancies.
