BWC130 Individualized Writing for Nonnative Speakers of English and BWC310 Basic Grammar and Writing Skills for Business perfectly complement each other. The combination provides language and grammar training with training in how to structure clear, effective, professional email, memos, letters, and reports.
For the Individualized Writing for Nonnative Speakers of English course, 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.
For the Basic Grammar and Writing Skills for Business course, you will go through a survey of the most important usage rules in business English, including rules for language, grammar, punctuation, spelling, word usage, and sentence structure. You will also go through training in how to write clear, well-organized business documents, especially email, memos, letters, and reports.
Enrolling in both of these courses at the same time results in a discount on tuition from $640 to $595.
You may purchase the grammar textbook we use from a bookseller such as Amazon.com. However, the textbook is not required for the course. You will use online training materials to learn the skills.
