English Grammar Lessons for Business Writing
An Essential Foundation for Business Writing
Sloppy attention to English grammar and sentence structure of written communication is not acceptable in today's business communications. You may have information to share that is extremely valuable to the readers, so it is unfortunate if their focus is disrupted by poor spelling, punctuation errors, and other basic writing mistakes.
The technology we have to create and transmit written information is fabulous. However, it is all too easy to slip into the trap of thinking that "spell check" and "grammar check" will give you perfection with the basics of your correspondence. It will not. The writer needs to make sure the writing is correct.
It is critical that writers possess and use a strong foundation in the language.
ATC's courses provide instruction in this important topic. We do not leave it to chance, even in our more advanced business writing classes. Here is a snapshot of what is covered in the context of business writing classes by Advanced Team Concepts.
