Real World Grammar Skills

This program is nothing like the grammar you may have had in school.  Although we are all trained grammarians, we believe knowing terms like "present participle," "object of the preposition," or "infinitive" are not necessary in writing without errors.  Our method, developed over nearly 50 years, will have you knowing when to use affect or effect--which or that--your or you're--to, too, or two--who or whom--they're or their--ensure, insure, or assure--stationery or stationary--and dozens more you were not quite certain about, for all of which we give you tricks and tips to remember them.

The "ly" and "self" words are clearly explained, along with easily understood correct usage for quotation marks, hyphens, commas, semicolons, colons, capitalization, and the list goes on.  What the very best "spell check" software cannot provide, is included in this seminar.  

In the most entertaining way, you will broaden your knowledge of:

  • Proper Word Usage           
  • Writing Standards          
  • Capitalization and Punctuation
  • Enunciation and Pronunciation
  • English-language Pitfalls
  • Proofreading Techniques  

The Real World Language Skills Workshop is a comprehensive overview and an invaluable resource. It is everything you always wanted to know but were, perhaps, too shy to ask.....  

Write On!

Write On! is our Effective Business Writing program that offers easily understood techniques to assure your business writing style is truly its best. Email, memorandums, reports, letters are all included.

At the core of the seminar is: 

                 The POWER Method

  • Plan
  • Organize
  • Write
  • Edit
  • Revise

Each of these essential steps is presented using our materials and your own writing samples in a hands-on highly interactive, dynamic environment.

Our point-by-point approach will lead to your personally writing and editing efficiently and being able to concentrate on one step at a time rather than juggling all the facets of writing simultaneously.  The sometimes overwhelming, becomes sensible, practical, and applicable. 

Among the many examples of this usable approach to  better business writing you will be able to apply immediately are:

​Yes, there is a lot of information to learn in this workshop.  You may become breathless, but you will not be bored.
