The course starts with a test to check your command of English. Then the first part gives you a general overview of the concept of tech writing and its simplification as well as vocabulary used in this particular kind of texts. Next you will dive into two extensive modules on Grammar used in modern technical writing. In the last module you are going to have some input and practice on punctuation as well as Simplified Technical English rules followed by an End-of-course Test. Additionally, every module includes a Review section which helps you to 'rotate' new concepts to boost your long-term memory. It is for those who would like to learn how to write easy and comprehensible specifications to their code, software, etc. according to international standards as well as for those who are only interested in reading. It gives practical and useful knowledge only; there is no information on this course which you would never use in real life work-related situations. So if you need technical writing for studies, work, and/or your own current or future projects, the course is for you.
