Ten Tips for Writing Effective Emails

Bonus #3

Phrases to Sound Polite in Writing

Sounding polite may be something you struggle with because (1) English is our second language so we may tend to be more direct in writing, and (2) when we write, people can’t hear our tone of voice and may interpret straightforward language as rude or impolite.

In this bonus PDF document, you'll find a compilation of 120+ polite phrases you can use when you're writing for professional purposes. This bonus will be available on 10 February 2022.

(Worth RM100) Included in your fee

Once you join, you'll be given a link to access your student dashboard. We'll upload all replay videos and worksheets in the student dashboard.

You’ll have access to the entire library of content inside the student dashboard even after the course is complete. So you can revisit the lessons as often as you like!

Here's a summary
of everything included in your fee.

What our students
have said about our programmes...

Find your answers here.

This course is specifically for second language learners who want to improve their writing skills. You will need to have a basic grasp of English (at least B1 on the CEFR level of English. Find out what your level of English is here). 

Although we won’t be teaching grammar, you will learn techniques and tips to help you become a better writer. If you’re interested in improving your grammar, we recommend you join Members Monthly, our monthly programme where we teach one online class a month. Registration for Members Monthly will open in 2022.

We’re focused on providing online courses and live workshops so we do not provide one-to-one training.

The Writing with Confidence online course is not a one-to-one class, so if you only want to learn with a personal tutor, then this course is not for you.

Our online course is a group training programme. You can either watch and participate in the classes live on Zoom, or watch the replays.

We’ll be covering many things in the course (you can check out the five modules in the “Modules” section above). With unlimited access to the replay videos, you can watch the lessons over and over again.

If you forget anything, you can always revisit any of the modules, even after the course duration ends. Talk about your money’s worth!

So while face-to-face classes have the benefit of getting instant feedback from your teacher and are more intimate, the disadvantage to that is you’re paying for that particular session only. After the face-to-face class is over, there won’t be any repeats, or a chance to revisit parts, unless you pay additional fees to resit a class.

Which is why we have designed this online course. You’ll be able to go through the course as many times as you like!

Writing with Confidence is a five-module programme focused on the techniques to become a more proficient and confident writer. We recommend this course if you want to learn writing techniques beyond grammar and punctuation.

We cover the techniques for confident writing, frameworks to organise and translate your thoughts into words, the styles of writing suitable for different situations, and phrases for professional writing. After the five months, you can revisit and watch the lessons any time because you have lifetime access!

Our other programme called Members Monthly is an ongoing membership focused on English proficiency. In Members Monthly, students get monthly online classes conducted live on Zoom in a group setting. The classes focus more on grammar. We cover a different topic every month.

We do plan to launch the online course again, but we can’t promise a date yet. If you enrol today and you’re unable to go through the course materials, you can access the course anytime after that! You’ll have lifetime access to the course for as long as this course is available.

The lessons are online, so you don’t need to physically attend any classes. Students will be given a link via email to join the Zoom classes.

If you can’t join live, you can watch the replay videos and download the worksheets from the online student dashboard.

Each module will be delivered once a month via a Zoom class. There are five modules, so the duration of the course is five months.

It should take about two hours each month for you to watch the video of one module. You can either watch the training live or watch the replay video.

We do encourage you to join live so you can ask us questions and interact with us and other students.

The worksheets may take longer for you to complete as it will depend on how long you want to spend on them. It will be different for each student.

We’ll have five classes (one class per module) conducted on Zoom where you can join us live with other students. We’ll be there to answer your questions as you implement what we teach!

We will give you writing assignments so that you can practise what we teach in the course. You may submit your work to us for our feedback. We will select some pieces to review during the Zoom class. We may not be able to review all (it depends on the number of students who join the course), but we’ll do our best to review as many as possible so that everyone can benefit from the feedback.

No. We want you to be able to go through the lessons anytime you want. So you can download the worksheets and view the replay videos any time!

If for any reason you have difficulty in accessing the course, you can always send us an email at so we can get it fixed for you.

Great question! This course is NOT for:

People who ONLY want a certificate – we do not provide certificates. Even though the classes are delivered live, we want you to go through the lessons even after the course ends. That’s why we’re giving you lifetime access to this course (for as long as it’s available)!

People who DON’T want to do the work – This online course is a self-learning programme – no one is going to push you to do the work. You have to make the time to do the work. You’ll need to practise what we teach. Learning is a lifelong process.

People who can ONLY learn with a personal teacher or in a classroom – Our online course is suitable for students who want to learn in groups and/or in their own time. You can participate live in the Zoom calls or choose to go through the course at your own pace, any time and anywhere (provided you have internet access, of course!). This online course is not face-to-face.

If you don’t fit any of the above, we’d love to have you join us!

That’s great! You can register by choosing a payment plan below. The last day to register is Thursday, 25 November 2021. We can’t wait to teach you in the course!
