Course Overview

Please note that this course is NOT offered for CPE credit.

In this course, Philip Vassallo looks at the challenges of writing business English for nonnative writers. He begins by outlining the "10 Commandments" of attitude and aptitude used in the course. He continues by identifying some of the most common writing errors, then explains how to construct clear sentences, understand linguistic etiquette, and use tricky words and expressions.
