This is an intensive course for beginner and intermediate writers who wish to sharpen their English writing skills for any business or personal purposes. You may have issues with grammar, or punctuation signs, or logic -- all of these will be addressed in the course. You will also learn the do's and don't's of good writing regardless of the language, which mostly has to do with framework, style and brainstorming process.
