Description

This Udemy course gives you, the English language learner, everything you need to improve your mastery of English writing.

This course will give you the ability to understand English better and the confidence to write English more fluently.

Please note that this is NOT a course for budding authors and journalists. There are many other excellent courses for those areas of writing but this is aimed at English language learners who wish to improve their writing ability.

Many writing courses are light on grammar and punctuation and some are proud to completely omit these important aspects. This course fills the gap and shows the importance of good grammar and punctuation when applied to writing.

This English writing course is taught by two world-renowned communications trainers, TJ Walker and Derek Smith.

Message from Derek Smith:

My name is Derek, I’m a native Brit and qualified and experienced TEFL/TESOL trainer.

I have been teaching English to adults for over 10 years and look forward to using technology to reach a wider audience.

I have a neutral accent that is clear and easy to understand.

This might not be the longest course on Udemy but I do respect your time.

The lessons are as long as necessary, and as short as possible.

Downloadable PDFs for each lesson will form a valuable resource collection for you.

The course is not designed to be accessed in sequence but takes more of a pick and mix approach.

I encourage you to ask questions if you feel that something has not been fully or clearly explained. You will get an answer and, if necessary, the course material will be updated. Depending on the answer, I will add a new lesson to the course.

Here is a brief summary of the course benefits for you:

  • Native speaker
  • Experienced and qualified teacher
  • Neutral and easy to understand accent
  • Lessons structured for easy access
  • Downloadable resources for each lesson

How many of your boxes did I tick?

This is the English writing course you need. I look forward to seeing you on the inside.

Message from TJ Walker

I have been teaching executives around the globe to deliver presentations in English for the last 30 years. Most people, even native English speakers, are insecure about their English grammar. You can become an accomplished speaker and communicator and know that you are using excellent English Grammar every time you speak.

Derek is one of the top English grammar instructors in the world and I am proud to be teaching this course with him. He has the English and European sensibility down perfectly. And I have been living in and working in the United States my entire life. When you put us together, it is a powerful combination designed to help you become a master of English grammar and communication.

Good luck and I hope to see you inside the course!
