Mistake-Free Grammar & Proofreading - Writing / Communications Training Seminar

A workshop that makes proofreading and grammar fun? Is that possible? You bet. This program is based on the latest research on how adults learn. It's fast-moving, so you stay interested. It's engaging, so you learn by doing. And it's fun, so you happily give it your all. Mistake-Free Grammar & Proofreading is nothing like the grammar classes you took in school. This workshop is exciting, engaging, and truly effective in refreshing you on the basics of business English.

In one fast-moving day, you'll learn:

  • The grammar rules every professional must know
  • All about capitalization and punctuation
  • Painless proofreading
  • Techniques for finding errors in numbers, prices, codes, dates, etc.
  • Commonly misused words and how to use them correctly
  • 6 key rules for subject-verb agreement
  • And more!

Who should attend?

This training is critical for people who want their written communication to be letter-perfect.

It's ideal for managers, secretaries, technical writers, editors, and proofreaders who:

  • Have never received formal training in these core skills
  • Have been out of school for a while and need to brush up

It's also great for anyone who uses English as a second language.

Memorable training with unforgettable results...

In this high-energy training, you'll try your luck with Blue Ribbon Bingo … polish your usage skills with Grammar Bull's Eye … and "question the answers" with Punctuation Jeopardy.

The result? The information comes alive for you. You easily see the practical applications. And it sticks with you in a way that pure "book learning" never can.
