     The QES Useful Guides to English     

Thanks to the support of a few QES members, the list of Useful Guides to English is slowly growing in number. Topics include a complete guide to punctuation, formal business writing techniques and several pages devoted to basic written English.

Take a look at the available guides and if you can come up with additional suitable topics, please get in touch with the Project Co-ordinator.  It's ideas we need and you may not want to actually write the material, but we will arrange all of that, including the preparation for publication on our website. In the meantime, our thanks to those who have submitted items for this important project.
