This Udemy course gives you, the English language learner, everything you need to improve your mastery of English writing.

This course will give you the ability to understand English better and the confidence to write English more fluently.

Please note that this is NOT a course for budding authors and journalists. There are many other excellent courses for those areas of writing but this is aimed at English language learners who wish to improve their writing ability.

Many writing courses are light on grammar and punctuation and some are proud to completely omit these important aspects. This course fills the gap and shows the importance of good grammar and punctuation when applied to writing.

It covers many aspects of writing and will specifically help you to write professional emails to customers, colleagues and management.

This English writing course is taught by two world-renowned communications trainers, TJ Walker and Derek Smith.

Message from Derek Smith:

My name is Derek, I’m a native Brit and qualified and experienced TEFL/TESOL trainer.

I have been teaching English to adults for over 10 years and look forward to using technology to reach a wider audience.

I have a neutral accent that is clear and easy to understand.

This might not be the longest course on Udemy but I do respect your time.

The lessons are as long as necessary, and as short as possible.

Downloadable PDFs for each lesson will form a valuable resource collection for you.

The course is not designed to be accessed in sequence but takes more of a pick and mix approach.

I encourage you to ask questions if you feel that something has not been fully or clearly explained. You will get an answer and, if necessary, the course material will be updated. Depending on the answer, I will add a new lesson to the course.

Here is a brief summary of the course benefits for you:

  • Native speaker

  • Experienced and qualified teacher

  • Neutral and easy to understand accent

  • Lessons structured for easy access

  • Downloadable resources for each lesson

  • No bloated lessons to trick you or waste your time

  • Valid for UK and US English

  • Updates as required by the learners

  • Udemy 30-day refund policy

How many of your boxes did I tick?

This is the English writing course you need. I look forward to seeing you on the inside.

Message from TJ Walker

I have been teaching executives around the globe to deliver presentations in English for the last 30 years. Most people, even native English speakers, are insecure about their English grammar. You can become an accomplished speaker and communicator and know that you are using excellent English Grammar every time you speak.

Derek is one of the top English grammar instructors in the world and I am proud to be teaching this course with him. He has the English and European sensibility down perfectly. And I have been living in and working in the United States my entire life. When you put us together, it is a powerful combination designed to help you become a master of English grammar and communication.

Good luck and I hope to see you inside the course!

Course is suitable for knowing proper way to write in English. The explanation is clear, concise, and easy to understand. The examples are also well used and explained. Really helpful for me to understand some benchmarks in English writing. Thank you teacher!

This is a very good course, put together well, and has plenty of resources. it's clear and understandable but best it's helping me being dyslexic to understand where and why we are right this way, basic grammar and punctuation more coherently. This is perfect for those with learning difficulties and those just wanting to get a grasp of English text as a whole. Thanks, guys shame you weren't here many many years ago.
September 4, 2022
this course has taught the most important parts of grammar like tenses, connectors and punctuations into depth. This has definitely improved and expanded my knowledge on English Grammar. Thank you, Udemy.

It was awesome. I was looking at sharpening my writing skills and this course met all my expectations.
August 1, 2022
The course is a Nice and great opportunity to learn, but I couldn’t join the Facebook page and I can’t ask questions based on what I don’t understand and honestly, it would be really helpful and wise to put up opportunities where we can exercise what we’ve learnt. Thank you!

Outright clearness, exceptionally advanced method educating in such a manner for all students across the globe can without much of a stretch comprehend as though the Teacher talks in their local language. This development is highly uncommon in the more significant part of the Instructors. An excellent course even master Instructors might consider to realize how to address students across the globe rather than Native. Thanks to the Instructor and (Thus far, half done. Cent per cent clarity. Anyone can learn it—worthy a lot). I am proceeding.

I am a tradesman, fabricator, pipe fitter, pipe welder. In my 24 years in the trade I have held supervision roles for 10 years. My spelling is terrible, I take too long to write emails. I could not answer if I was asked the meaning of a a verb or noun etc. I just scrapped through in English at school and I have spoken solely English my whole life, NZ born, living in Australia, I am not a good example of the english language. It would greatly benefit my ability and respect in the work place as well as to my kids at home, if I improved on this subject. I speak well enough and confidently, but in terms of written communication I need need to go back to school.

Thanks a lot to the instructors. Except the fact that some lessons where too short that could have been merged together, every thing about this course is satisfying.
June 10, 2021
Thanks for this course. It helps me to understand the importance of writing, grammar and punctuation.

I am reviewing about this course, It is solution to our writing skills with Derek sir's magnificant skills. Your sincere student, Qurbaan Shaikh
February 13, 2021
I think the course could be condensed into smaller lessons. Especially the lessons pertaining to types of verbs. The examples are clear and concise, but I think there's something is missing. Also, I would like to see more visuals because I'm a visual learner. Besides that I think it's an exceptional course because it covers a wide range of topics.
February 6, 2021
I am very happy with this course so far, and look forward to continuing. There are a lot of interesting hints which I will be sure to use.
February 6, 2021
I learnt alot about common errors I used to make when writing and speaking and this course has shown me ways to correct them. The tutor did an excellent job in the grammar section by highlighting overlooked topics. Overall, I found it very smooth paced, user friendly and resourceful.
