Nevertheless, if you know how to express your thoughts about business and other important things, certainly you will succeed. We are lucky, because all of us have an opportunity to improve the skills. We always have to improve our writing skill.

You have to practice your skills every day. It goes without saying, that you can train your writing skills. Read more. Better read daily well-written newspapers, such as The Wall

Street Journal and others. Pay attention on structure, grammar and choice of words.

What should you do?

1. You must have a plan how to make an effective text.

2. Your offers must be short and informative.

He said that the legal and scientific literature, have to start with description and end with the main idea. However, in business correspondence, it’s better to start with the conclusion.
