Critiquing Written Language Issues

Duration: 1 hour live online.

Fee: $99.00  Please note that Preferred Trainer Discounts apply to this event.

This is one of several program address advanced ESL issues, especially for Writing! For the Written Communication Training theme, please also check out Designing Email Effectiveness Communication Programs.

When trainers decide to intervene for written communication, ongoing assessments become learning documents – if these critiques are frequent, systematic, consistent and goal-oriented. This webinar tackles the ESL professional’s ‘second’ face: how well he/she ‘looks’ in print! Email is a significant communication venue in the workplace. We can teach strategies, but, ultimately, ESL adults learn best by visual review of the wrong way – and the correct way: using ongoing examples of very practical workplace products: their own emails! Learn how to structure the review process and adapt writing review for email communication. Expand your review skills by analyzing actual client emails.
