Course description

While the content is based on the federal government guidelines in “Plain Language: Clear and Simple” (booklet and website), the techniques are applicable to any business writing. The tips will help you organize information so that it makes sense to your reader. By matching vocabulary and style to the reader’s level, you will deliver a clear message. Other tips will enable you to explain technical terms with concrete words and common meanings, and to use examples that relate to the reader’s experience.
