Learning Objectives:

  • To develop the analytical thinking and writing skills among students


Suppose you are a well-known communication specialist with widespread experience in the field of communication. You have received an invitation for a workshop from XYZ University.


This University organizes a workshop on “Requirements of Effective Communication in an Organization” and invites you to deliver a special lecture on it. You are unable to attend the workshop on the given dates due to your other professional commitments. So you have suggested other dates as per your feasibility.





In this regard, you have to write a letter of acceptance as per your availability of that invitation by keeping in mind the elements of effective written communication.




Marks: 12





Effective writing is concise each word, sentence, and paragraph counts. Conciseness should not be interpreted to mean brevity, which will result in an incomplete message. To illustrate, a 150-word letter that could be written in 100 words without a loss in meaning is an example of a concise item.




Make the following paragraphs more concise without removing any information.
