Fundamentals of French Writing Skills

This three-day workshop focuses on writing well-structured sentences using the appropriate verb tense and the right preposition, respecting agreement rules and avoiding common anglicisms. The principles learned are immediately applied through interactive on-line exercises and writing of work-related documents. The written assignments produced during the workshop serve as a basis for discussion on usage, syntax and style.

If you need to review essential French grammatical structures and vocabulary, we strongly suggest that you first register for the course Essentials of French Grammar.
