Tuition: $345.00

The Individualized Writing for Nonnative Speakers of English course is for people who have a good command of the English language, but have basic usage problems resulting from speaking English as a second language.

The course gives you the focused training you need to write correct business English.

You will send writing samples to your instructor. Your instructor will read each sample thoroughly, identify skills you need to learn, list the sentences with problems in each area with corrections showing how they should have been written, assign readings from the grammar textbook, answer any questions you have about the skill, have you practice the skill, and give you an online quiz containing sentences from your original writing sample that you must correct in ten minutes to be sure you have learned the skills. You will go through four cycles of this work on your writing skills. You have unlimited access to the instructor in the course.

The Individualized Writing for Nonnative Speakers of English is for nonnative speakers of English who have problems in language, phrases, grammar, punctuation, spelling, word usage, or sentence structure. The course will help you polish your English usage by learning new patterns to replace the old by using your own sentences as examples.
