Writing skills: social media and formal emails

Upgrade your writing skills and learn how to sound fluent when you use these two common styles.

Do you ever come across text messages or comments on social media written by native English speakers? Have you noticed that they are written in a very particular style but you’re not sure how to produce it yourself when you write?

Do you ever have to write emails in a more formal context? Perhaps at work to an external supplier or when you’re dealing with something personal. Are you sometimes unsure about your tone and the appropriate language to use?

If yes, find out how this course will change that.

ABOUT THIS COURSE
