Improving business communication is highly important when it comes to being successful in your career. That's why a new course "Business Writing," offered by The Hadley School for the Blind, will greatly expand your skills.

Hadley's new tuition-free course "Business Writing" helps you produce business writing that achieves its purpose. Available in large print and online (coming soon in braille and on audiocassette), this course improves your business-writing skills while you study at your own pace and in the comfort of your home.

This course's four lessons present the information and practice you need to write successful business communication. Successful completion of a Hadley Basic English course or adequate competency, as determined by the English Skills Diagnostic Test, is a prerequisite for this course. Also, you need to be able to type using a typewriter or a computer keyboard. The first lesson explains how to organize information and create well-constructed paragraphs. Lesson two focuses on writing style and appropriate tone. Introducing the appropriate structures and formats for memos, email, and business letters, Lesson three provides hands-on practice working with such business correspondence. Finally, Lesson four shows you how to write a short business report. Lessons must be submitted in typewritten or Word Processed format.

"Writing business correspondence shouldn't be a task people dread doing," says Angie Sveum, instructor for "Business Writing." "Learning to organize ideas into the different basic types of business correspondence presented will put those enrolled in this course well on their way to successful business writing." This course is open to students in the Adult Continuing Education Program and High School Program. Why not enroll in this course now so you can write business communications with confidence?
