Poor writing skills can have a serious impact on our confidence, our time management and even our prospects for promotion, so it is no surprise that many people have attended a Writing Skills course at some point in their professional career.

Our English Writing Skills courses are individually designed following a detailed pre-course assessment, and are popular with both native and non-native speakers of English. Courses are also available in other languages and vary in length according to the ability and objectives of each participant.

  • Opening and closing with maximum effect
