Welcome Students to Business English for Careers.

Intructor Shirley Orille – See you in class!

Do you want to learn to improve your English and Communication skills?  Most of us do.  And you have probably heard the old saying, “The early bird catches the worm.”  Well, I would have said the “The prepared bird catches the worm.”  Being prepared in the workplace by speaking and writing English correctly arms you with the necessary skills it will take to succeed in your career.  Business English for Careers will teach you specifically word usage and spelling, grammar and structure, punctuation, writing, and focus on standard business English writing in the workplace.  This class is filled with drills and routines to assist you in recognizing the errors in your everyday writing.  Yes, it is repetitive, but with repetition comes recall to apply up-to-date English rules (and know the exceptions).

You say, “It’s been a while since I’ve been back to review my English or Communication skills.”  Well, don’t fear this class will reacquaint you slowly with the principles and skills necessary to update you with our constantly changing living language.  In class the student participates and the teacher reviews English principles in a non-intimidating setting.  We treat each student against his /her own abilities, and not the other students. With a certain degree of humor, the class becomes challenging and fun filled  as we work through the essentials of learning or relearning the rules of using English effectively in speech and in writing.
