Clear English

Clear English is an English writing course developed by Lingu, designed for professionals in public administration and the international business sector.

Prices and registration

The course begins with an introduction to the Norwegian government´s The Public Sector Communication policy.

This course will help participants follow the policy´s general principles of good, concise writing so that their written communications are as effective, case-specific and user-friendly as possible.

Using clear and understandable language, English communication with customers will:

  • Become smoother and easier
  • Result in speedier processing of tasks
  • Boost an organisation’s reputation for clear communication

 

Approach

During the pre-course consultation with participants, Lingu will gather Information regarding relevant themes, scenarios, cases for use throughout the course. 

Our course materials are designed to be flexible and can be adjusted to suit any organisation.

 

Course duration

Choose between a two or four-day course

All participants will be interviewed by an English teacher before the course starts. This gives us information about the students’ work responsibilities, current use of English at work as well as providing us with an idea of their language levels.
