    Jack Comer United States of America This is an excellent course for writing and some speaking effectively. It goes into depth and gets you to think and analyze the why's of what you write about and how it should be done correctly. Lots of examples good and bad to help you. The examples used are form professional writers and non-professionals. Helps you to see the difference and how you can improve. If you are serious about taking this course then you need to apply yourself. This will do you much good when it comes to your ability to write. I enjoyed this course. Take lots of notes you will need them. 2015-05-23 00:05:30
