If you want to make your writing clear and easily understood it is essential to write in the Active Voice. If you are serious about improving your writing skills the best place to start is by understanding  how to use the Active Voice when writing.  This course will teach you  how to get  your message across with strength, confidence and efficiency.  This applies to speaking as much as it does to writing. Three Great quizzes help support your learning knowledge!

  • Understand the difference between the Active and the Passive Voice in writing and speaking. 

  • Have more more confidence in your writing skills. Know that you are communicating effectively and confidently.

  • Understand how to identify the Active Voice in writing. 

  • Know how to write in the Active Voice to make your writing more powerful and easy to understand

  • Three Great quizzes help support your learning knowledge!


This course is put together with your understanding in mind. There are added examples to help explain concepts. Creative illustrations are effectively used to illuminate points so that through a combination of sight, and sound, you can easily grasp the nuances of each lecture

There is a series of challenging quizzes that are designed to reinforce the most important concepts from each lecture as you go along. The goal is always to emphasize your understanding of each piece of the broader subject, and there are times when foundational concepts are re-visited in order to solidify your learning knowledge. Best of all you can go at your own pace!

This course is designed for YOU, the writer. This is the course that will show YOU how to take your writing to a higher level. Whether you are a beginner who is just learning, or a more experienced individual who wants to know more about how to write better, this is the course that will help you reach your goal of getting your points across as clearly as possible. This course is also a great introduction for anyone who wants to get more serious about writing in a broader sense. Completing this course is the most efficient way to gain inside knowledge that you might not ever learn on your own. They don’t teach this stuff in most writing courses! And it can give you the inside edge you need to make any speech more powerful and effective.

Who this course is for:
  • Anyone who wants to write with more confidence.
  • Anyone who would like to understand how to improve their writing by using the Active Voice
