This unit aims to give you the knowledge, skills and abilities to further develop your literacy levels within your field of expertise. Emphasis is placed on workplace language and the various ways it is used in a working environment. Through applied activities simulating workplace environments and situations, you will identify and develop your language skills, and practise these skills with the aim of improving your university and employment options. Through individual, team and larger group interactions, you will examine business documentation, and communication, business technology and work-related public speaking.
