Welcome to The Language Lab blog, and my very first post. I’m Sandra Folk, an educational consultant specializing in online learning. And by that I mean my goal is to help people write and express themselves more effectively.
My own experience – over twenty years as a teacher, and a consultant with organizations including the University of Toronto and TV Ontario – has shown me what a difference it makes to be able to communicate well and with confidence. If you’ve ever written something that received praise, or made a successful presentation, you’ll know what I’m talking about. We’re more valued in the workplace if we can write and speak clearly.
For me it’s a thrill to see someone go from struggling with writing and presentation skills to feeling confident about their abilities. And that’s why I’ve started this blog. Through bi-weekly posts I hope to help you improve your communications skills, and keep you in the loop about new developments in the world of business communication. If you have time take a look at the entire Language Lab website. Your comments and questions are always welcome on The Language Lab Blog.
