6 Writing for real

The kinds of thing you write every day are not necessarily what you will write in a Functional Skills English or Essential Skills Wales Communication writing assessment. The difference between a text message to your best friend and a formal letter to apply for a job is a big one.

Even if you never intend taking any kind of writing assessment, it is unlikely you will be able to avoid writing a text of some sort that requires you to stick to the rules you have looked at during this course.

In this final section, you look at some of the practical aspects of writing and points that you have not covered so far.
