Proper grammar usage is essential for all types of business correspondence. Professionals who can write clearly and correctly are an invaluable resource for companies. When emails, memos, reports, and other types of business correspondence contain basic grammatical errors, they can lead to misunderstandings and a lowering of the esteem of one’s company in the eyes of potential clients. The English Island’s Business Grammar and Writing classes can help eliminate these lost opportunities. Our classes provide professionals with a thorough understanding of the basics of English grammar and how it applies specifically to the business world.
