Online English Composition I Course ProfilePeople who write well enjoy many advantages that you might not have considered.  They . . .

  • Enjoy a career advantage in today’s Internet age, because every website, email and other digital communication must be created by someone who writes well.
  • Advance more quickly in their jobs, because people who write well get singled out for greater responsibilities.
  • Are seen as more intelligent than other people who do not write well.
  • Have an easier time producing top-quality presentations, memos, budgets and business documents of all kinds.
  • Think on a higher level, because the process of writing clarifies thinking.

Are your writing skills strong enough to let you enjoy benefits like those? If not, perhaps you should take an online writing course, like English Composition I.

After completing the course, you will be able to:

  • Plan written assignments quickly and eliminate “writer’s block.”
  • Research your written work more quickly.
  • Avoid common mistakes in grammar, punctuation and style.
  • Identify and compose the following types of writing: argumentative, compare/contrast, descriptive, narrative, persuasive, and summary.
  • Summarize and paraphrase existing written work, without plagiarizing.
  • Successfully revise and edit your completed work.

And another thing – if you’re starting college in September, August could be a great time to polish up your writing before classes begin.
