The Philippine Star - - BUSINESS -

Filipinos are no stranger to the English lan­guage. In 2016, Philip­pines ranked 13th on the list of the best non-na­tive English speak­ers in the world. How­ever, based on the British Coun­cils’ In­ter­na­tional English Lan­guage Test­ing Sys­tem (IELTS), there is still a mas­sive need to work on the way Filipinos ex­press them­selves on pa­per. Poor writ­ing skills can take a toll in all forms of busi­ness trans­ac­tions which re­quires writ­ten com­mu­ni­ca­tion.
