  22. TESTIMONIALS Milena Langer Germany Mandana Sheybani Wharton MBA ’04 USA Ola Folarin Wharton MBA ’02 Nigeria Dmitry Solodov SIEMENS USA Russia Sara Guzman Spain Zhoufu SIEMENS USA China

  23. TESTIMONIAL “Writing for Professional Purposes was an extremely useful experience for me because of the exposure to new ideas on writing such as vividness and the excellent feedback I received every day from the professor. The professor in fact was wonderful. She gave very helpful feedback and responded to my questions and requests promptly. My only complaint is that I would have liked a longer course!” Ola Folarin Wharton MBA ‘02 Nigeria GO BACK TO TESTIMONIALS

  24. TESTIMONIAL “I really improved my writing skills by taking Writing for Professional Purposes. The class topics, together with my serious efforts, helped me learn some very important basics of writing. I especially benefited from the units on “vividness” and “assertiveness”, as well as “peer editing activities”. Mandana Sheybani Wharton MBA ‘04 USA GO BACK TO TESTIMONIALS

  25. TESTIMONIAL “All aspects that you taught in your course entered my brain. I recognized my efforts while I was writing at work. I use the Wordsmyth.net webpage nearly every day. I found the readings extremely helpful because they concentrated on the key facts and they mixed both stylistic and format issues. You taught me to write effectively and your organized units were also effectively arranged within five weeks. Thank you!” Milena Langer Germany GO BACK TO TESTIMONIALS

  26. TESTIMONIAL “I was a bit skeptical about an online course. I thought: How am I going to learn English on line?!! To my surprise, I have not only learned English but won a lot of confidence in using the Internet for more interesting things than checking my e-mail and buying plane tickets”. “Also, I am amazed with the organization, the feedback from the instructor, the study materials....I only have good words!   I wish I had more free time to spend doing my homework, reading the unit readings several times,participating in the  chats ... What I learned has been (and continues to be) incredibly  useful for my job, especially letters. Now, when I have to write a letter I have a procedure in my head, which saves me lots of time, and I get much more to the point than I used to”. Sara Guzman Spain GO BACK TO TESTIMONIALS

  27. TESTIMONIAL “I enjoyed the course and the way you approached it; the amount of material and exercises was not overwhelming given the flexible schedule provided. I've absorbed a large amount of new knowledge about the usage of English for the creation of diverse documents. Please let me thank you for the useful, productive course”. Dmitry SolodovSiemens USA Russia GO BACK TO TESTIMONIALS

  28. TESTIMONIAL “I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for your hard work in helping me improve my English writing skills. Overall, I have learned orreinforced a lot of skills in regard to my English writing, such as strong verbs, descriptive adjectives, no wordiness, and much more. Furthermore, I like that the class is delivered via the Internet, and the flexibility you gave me helped me stay in this class”. Zhoufu Siemens USAChina GO BACK TO TESTIMONIALS
