This month I attended a two-day Business Writing and Grammar seminar through a well-known international training company. I found Paula’s class more interesting, interactive, and fast paced. She provided many examples in her workbook and covered the same amount of information in just one day in comparison with the two day seminar. I really enjoyed Paula’s class, and I’m looking forward to taking other courses with her.
