Programme Details

Storytelling is an important skill for communicating with our family, colleagues, customers and partners, for work and leisure. Efficient storytelling will save us a significant amount of time in conveying our ideas and thoughts to our audience. While spontaneous verbal storytelling requires years of practice and preparation, we could polish our technique by equipping the know how to use accurate grammar to write better and more concise English expressions.

This short course, which will be taught by a retired senior newspaper editor, will focus on concise English writing in simple sentence structure for cohesion within and among sentences and paragraphs for delivering the message accurately.

This short course targets for writers of upper-intermediate or above level English proficiency, native or non-native, who want to refine their English writing skills for their professional needs.
