Customer Demand Drives Development of Writing Center That Provides Instant Performance Support

BRISBANE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 25, 2006 -- GlobalEnglish Corporation, the leading online English learning and support service provider for business communication, today announced the availability of its new Writing Center, which includes sample correspondence for common interactions and provides writing tips and guidelines in 13 native languages. According to GlobalEnglish customer research, 43% of employees who are not native English speakers reported that producing documents in English was one of their most challenging business responsibilities.

"Our clients told us that writing -- in particular, business writing -- is one of the most important competencies that their employees must develop to be effective in their jobs," said Deepak Desai, President and CEO of GlobalEnglish Corporation. "We built the Writing Center as more than a training intervention; we designed it to be a performance support tool that would help employees learn appropriate business writing and enable them to immediately apply it to their jobs."

The GlobalEnglish Writing Center is unique because it provides sample correspondence documents that model effective tone, vocabulary, phrasing, sequencing, and other key elements of clear writing and can be used in daily job-related communication. Topics include the most common types of business interactions such as organizing a meeting, requesting clarification, explaining a delay, congratulating a colleague, and requesting information. With one click, the text can be copied for use in a document or placed directly into an email application. The Writing Guidelines section offers material appropriate for beginner through advanced users and includes solutions for grammar problems, advice on style and usage, an introduction to common business idioms, and more.
