Clean, clear writing saves time, presents a professional image, and improves working relationships. This fun, quick-paced refresher on the basics will give you the tools you need to jump-start your communication skills.

In this live, online class, we’ll cover how to

  • Apply grammar principles to convey your content more effectively (subject-verb agreement, pronouns, parallel structure, modifiers)
  • Eradicate errors in punctuation and word choice
  • Construct sentences properly every time
  • Avoid the 10 most common proofreading pitfalls

A comprehensive PDF reference guide including self-tests reinforces what you’ve learned and provides an array of tools and tips for confident communication.

Plan to use a computer or a device with a comfortably large screen to read informational slides. Audio is accessed through a computer microphone and speakers or a headset; telephone dial-in is also available. Participant questions are welcome during the class.
