Learn how sentences work, their types and forms, to personalise your message, to write strategically and to better understand texts. This seminar offers guideposts organized to develop the ability to observe, to see and to justify all responses.
The workshop will be presented in two three-hour sessions, two weeks apart. This break will allow you to use the ideas acquired in the first session and, during the second one, to ask the questions that will inevitably have arisen through their use.
