Course Writing Clear texts
Do you regularly write quotes, plans, reports or proposals for your work? Does that always cost more time and attention than you expected beforehand? While you remain unsure about what your readers really want to know? And whether your text is convincing? Learnit's writing training can help you write professional texts that happen more quickly and with more confidence.
The course Writing Clear Texts is aimed at writers like you: expert, but not necessarily in writing itself. In two days you will be introduced to a working method that produces better results more quickly. For this purpose we first map out who you write about, on what and for what purpose. When the writing task is clear, we set up a basic structure for your text. You will learn how to formulate in an appealing and convincing way. Finally, you will learn where to find an answer to your language questions.
Below you will find an overview of topics that are discussed in the training clear texts writing. This programme can be supplemented by subjects from the participants who come out of the intake.
- What exactly do I tell the reader, and why?
- What does the reader want to know?
- What do I want the reader to do with or through my text?
- What makes a text convincing?
- What text structure do I choose for a text with problem and solution (s), for an opinion or a plan, or for a (evaluation) report? What choices do I have even more?
- How do I write for the impatient reader? Pyramid writing? Scanable write?
- Chapters, paragraphs and paragraphs: How do I deal with it? And become?
- Do I choose a formal, neutral or informal style? For whom and in what situations?
- How do I formulate pleasant and easily readable phrases?
This training is especially practical. Of course we exchange listening, sharing, trying and reflecting (also among themselves). In order to make sure that you actually write better texts in your workplace faster and thus take the training you need, the training is also interactive. You can ask your questions, you will also learn from the other participants and you will get a lot of tips to find an answer to language questions in practice. Finally, after the training, you can submit a text in practice for feedback.
The training clear texts writing is suitable for everyone who writes for his work regularly longer texts to convince. For example: reports, plans, proposals and quotations. Structuring and arguing play an important role in this.
The training focuses mainly on the Dutch language area. But structuring and convincing is more international than you think. If you have to write English, German or French for your work, you can still get the most tips out of the feet.
If you mainly write short documents such as letters and e-mails, then the Customer-oriented Writing course might be better for you. For those who mainly have questions about flawless writing, we warmly recommend the Dutch spelling and grammar training. Feel free to contact Learnit for advice!
The topics above are certainly given attention because they directly contribute to better structured, more convincing and more readable texts. How the program is filled in exactly depends on the intakes that the trainer decreases shortly before the training dates, by mail or by telephone. So you can certainly take points.
Do you have in your team or in the Department of colleagues who are having the same questions? Or do you want a training that is even more attuned to your work practice and/or that of your colleagues? Please contact us to discuss the customised possibilities.
