About

The course provides students with instruction and practical advice on how to make their communications in English, primarily in written form, more accessible and reader oriented. The course cover topics such as: what is (and what isn't) Plain English; the historical development and need of Plain English, recognizing the common traps one faces in intercultural communication; planning and organizing communications that are ‘reader-oriented’; basic writing principles for clear and straightforward language; improved editing skills, among others. In connection with these topics, students will practice writing (and rewriting) texts of various types (e.g. selected examples of writing from different professions) along with discussion and practice of the different new media technologies encountered today, such as e-mails, texts, social media posts, chats, etc.
