Writing isn't hard. It's just that non-native English speakers are not trained to write.
Montreal, Canada (PRWEB) August 13, 2013
Experienced educational writer Dr. Frank Bonkowski (http://www.businessenglishhq.com/about) has just released "Write Now: Business Writing That Gets Results" geared to intermediate and high-level non-native English speakers. Writing is not hard. It's just that business writing training focuses on the technical aspects of writing — grammar and punctuation. But that misses the entire point. Professionals don't need that, as such. Instead, professionals need to learn how to write well.
"Write Now" is a guidebook to successful business writing that covers everything from formulating an idea to post-writing editing. It is written in an easy-to-understand way that is perfect for professionals and students alike. "Write Now" is already used by ESL professors in Canada and the UK.
"Write Now" helps experienced freelance consultants, managers, employees, professors, students, and business owners write many different kinds of business documents, such as letters, emails, reports, and business proposals, the right way. "Write Now" is full of strategies and tips, language examples that writers can use, and language activities to immediately improve writing.
"Easy to understand, logical and valuable. This will be a book that I will keep handy as a reference and a guide," comments Mark Yerbury, President, Qualiteam, Inc., A Dale Carnegie franchise.
“If you were going to pick one professional writing book to get through your career, it should be this one,” asserts Danny Iny, Founder & CEO of Firepole Marketing.
"Write Now" (http://www.amazon.com/Write-Now-Business-Writing-Essentials/dp/0986819220) includes the following topics:
