English Word Power was inspired when it became evident that much of the excellent work and ideas expressed in assignments were corrupted due to the poor use of English.
Many corporations and institutions in South Africa stipulate English as their prime language of communication, yet many of their students and employees don’t have English as a first language. With most information produced in text books or on the internet in English, these people are at a distinct disadvantage.
A cost and time-effective solution was needed, and during 1997 English Word Power was born.
Several English lecturers and teachers from both the academic and corporate sectors developed and wrote the bulk of the English Word Power program. Module content and the learning process is designed to meet the learner’s needs without impairing the language register in the process.
English Word Power is designed for the written language and is not a voice development program.
