Écrire des textes courts, concis et précis

Writing Short, Concise and Precise Text
Note: This seminar will be conducted in French only

Presenter: Véronique Léger

A tool to make written material intelligible to any reader.
Vital for editing web content and material aimed at the general public.

Learn how sentences work, their types and forms and how you can write strategically, personalize your materials, and make them easier to understand. The seminar will give you a clear path for systematically analysing complex sentences and converting them into short and precise ones.

Send us some of those long and complicated sentences that you get hung up on. Clear them up with help from our trainer and the other participants. It will make the seminar that much more useful for everyone.

A passionate trainer of written French in businesses, school boards, etc. Véronique Léger has earned a Master’s degree in language pedagogy (French grammar). She is also a lecturer in the Sciences de l’éducation department at the Université de Montréal. Éditions Galeace has published her manuals and toolkits written to enable their users to learn her self-correction method.
