ABOUT THE COURSE Mistakes in written English not only damages the reputation of an organisation but also hurt sales. A Royal Mail survey found that 30% of people would not buy a product or service from an organisation if it sent out a communication that contained a spelling, grammar or punctuation mistake. The Enhance My English course will accelerate the learning of English grammar and formal writing and ensure your organisation presents consistent, accurate and professional communications to your customers and clients.

Some recent research An article on the Wall Street Journal web site stated: “45% of 430 employers said they were increasing employee-training programs to improve employees’ grammar.” A Royal Mail survey revealed that: “…bad design, poor grammar and atrocious spelling could be costing UK businesses a staggering £41 billion in lost sales. Nearly three-quarters of all customers (74 per cent) said they wouldn’t trust businesses that used poor spelling or grammar, whilst almost a third (30 per cent) said they wouldn’t buy any product or service from them.”

Course fees and duration The course fee of £99 is fully inclusive of certificates and tutor marking. The course should take between 30 and 50 hours to complete overall.

Course outcomes Learners completing the course will have a clear understanding of the following: the effects of poor communication on an organisation grammar terminology and structure basic punctuation and spelling most commonly confused words and errors how to build effective sentences and paragraphs different writing styles, tones and plain English
