He is also a keen proponent of the digital revolution and dreams of a world where all books are available instantly to be read, searched or treasured. Although he mainly writes non-fiction, he loves Victorian literature as well as modern fiction and poetry of all kinds. His academic knowledge of medieval events, cultures and the history of Britain’s environment make him especially qualified to help students interested in world building.

People can Communicate poorly in many different ways, for example:

Fragmented Sentence (ie.This is where a writer incorrectly ends a sentence that is not a complete sentence)
Run on Sentences (ie. Two clauses or sentences are not separated.e.g. I ate this morning my friend ate leftovers).
Comma Splices (ie. This occurs when two independent clauses are joined together by a comma. e.g. The soup cooked for three hours, it was tasteless.)
Dangling Modifier (ie. A modifier is a word or phrase that modifies (tells more about) word or phrase. A dangling modifier occurs where the thing being modified is not included. e.g. Typing at my computer, the foot rail broke off).
Confusion can also arise when you say or write one thing but your facial expressions or actions are inconsistent with what you say.

There are many other issues to consider and understand with respect to communication; and this is precisely what this course will do.
