Learn to write reports, proposals, memos, press releases, executive summaries, and business letters in clear, concise professional English.
This high-impact, English writing course—tailored to your institution—is taught by the seasoned U.S.-American author and editor, Paul Hockenos. Having worked with advanced non-native speakers of English in Germany for many years, his goal is to teach professionals how to improve their writing and editing skills in professional, global English. Paul’s seminars are based on Strunk and White’s classic writing primer, The Elements of Style, and John Kohl’s Global English. Participants will learn how to produce crisp, grammatically correct, and hard-hitting English.
This English writing course will make your organization’s written products—proposals, reports, recommendations, news, analysis, correspondence—come across with far greater impact. Its aim is to liberate good ideas and solid products from written English that is vague, wordy, and distorted with awkward grammar. Participants will learn simple rules to write more clearly, edit their own texts, structure their ideas, write professional executive summaries, and avoid common mistakes.
Learn the rules of written English in a seminar tailored to your business.
Many of the skills taught in the English Writing Course for Global Professionals are those that Anglo-American students learn in college writing classes, but condensed into an intense, professional-level training.The two-day seminar is composed of highly interactive classroom sessions (in the morning) followed by one-on-one tutorials with seminar participants in the afternoon (individually, in their own offices). Both the in-class and one-on-one instruction uses materials written by the participants and their organizations. Thus every seminar is adapted specifically to your organization.
The course includes sections on composition, style, organization, grammar, punctuation, prepositions and tone.
Over two days, the seminar includes eight hours of in-class instruction (4 hours each morning) and a total of one hour of one-on-one tutoring per participant (afternoons). The groups can be as small as two or may include as many as 12 participants. Individual instruction is also possible.
