Grammar ~ More Linking Signals

OK, the good news is that I have re-organised our lessons on Linking, so I advise you to review this matter from the very beginning, starting on the grammatical concepts page Pre-communicative Practice . From there, you will be able to enter the contents page of all the linking categories, on the Linking signals (general) page. Once there, you will find all the lessons we've done so far and today's lesson is the one on linking sentences for reformulation purposes. A shortcut to this is the Linking signals for reformulation page. Enjoy your intense learning!

Writing ~ Examples of Syntax Ambiguity

Today I added a note on what bad syntax can mean in writing. A few examples will make you realise the kind of confusion words can lead to in a clause/sentence, if the writer overlooks the possible double meaning of words and word combinations.

Please find this lesson on the Syntactic ambiguity page. I hope you find it useful - there's more to come on this matter.

English for Work ~ The Profession of Copywriting

I shall continue to write more aspects on interviewing skills in parallel to the chapter I'm opening today on the profession of copywriting.

For quite a while now I have been studying the way business is changing nowadays and how this adds so much scope for using English in a variety of both traditional as well as novel professions. You better believe it my friends, the world needs good writers, translators and teachers - put your minds in gear, sharpen up your skills and then go for one of the jobs we are going to unfold for you step by step here.

Please find today's lesson on the Copywriting page.

Please let me know if you welcome this addition to our e-zine. The plan is to build a great chapter that will help you to overcome language barriers in your working environment.

This is it for now, my friends!

I hope you find this information useful and not too confusing. Even though you're at the stage of building on it, have patience at this point in your learning and you'll be able to reap the fruit of your work later on, whichever aspect of our lessons you are concentrating on.

Please feel free to comment and suggest your ideas by replying to this email - I look forward to hearing from you. If you wish to chat either with me or with other members worldwide, go to My English Club .

All the best from me until next time,

Lucia da Vinci
