The reason it will become a thing is that adults are expected to be able to use any commonly used language like English well; business and/or policy-related documents have to be read, written and understood after all.
Things can go belly up if you don’t know how to read and write properly. Here’s why. If the contents of such professional documents cannot be properly understood, issues and problems can occur and people may even lose their jobs or worse – the unthinkable.
Take it to your advantage. Kind request to share it with anyone who could possibly benefit from it in their journey to further develop their language and communication skills, perhaps even in their pursuits to master it and become truly proficient in English.-Léonieke Ariaans, MA
