Writing Better Emails

British Council via FutureLearn

students interested

Develop your skills in planning, organising, writing and editing emails.

Email writing is one of the universally important skills in today’s workplace. But it is rarely taught in higher education institutions and many young people arrive in the workplace having never written a professional email. Equally, people with many years’ work experience have never been taught email writing skills.

This online course develops your planning, organising, writing and editing skills, to enable you to write more effective and efficient emails. You will learn techniques to help you write emails that people want to read and ensure you are better understood in the workplace.

The course is suitable for anyone who uses email, but especially for those in the early stages of their career, or who need to update their skills.

The course is aimed at native and non-native English speakers at around intermediate level (approximately B1 on the CEFR) or above.
