Theoretical introduction to formal writing in English
Going through a step-by-step approach to writing official documents
"The objective of this workshop is to give new tools to assist public officials in formal English writing through the entire process of project documentation. During this workshop, the features of effective project-related formal English writing will be explored, providing opportunities to experience new techniques for cooperative and step-by-step writing, to learn to avoid common grammar and style mistakes in formal written English, and to put new insights into practice.
This one-and-a-half day workshop will be organized on a flexible and interactive manner, largely depending on the interests and contribution of the participants."
