You will start a blog!
Yes, this time you will! A lot of non-native speakers HAVE TO write a lot for work, but they don't feel their English is good enough. The course gives you a chance to practice telling your story and get personalized feedback from your trainer and other course participants (if you wish to share your publications)
Three months of work
We will be working together for 90 days. You will be learning at your own pace, and I'm going to be there for you when you need my feedback and support. I will also share a few cool resources to check if your texts sound like a native speaker has written them.
You will have a place to share your progress with people who care. I promise to get you the first readers of your blog who will give you feedback in the most friendly form. Your trainer will check all your work.
You can do this too! I'm sharing simple tools that I use to structure my ideas in English and make them easy to read. Check out my articles for the Singapore startup community e27. Feel free to read my blog on LinkedIn as well.
