Communication Speaking Skills English

These are blog articles to which I’ve made some very minor revisions and done some very minor edits. I’ve posted these articles as PDF documents because they are instructive, and they are practical reading material for communication skills improvement and progress. I developed the content of these articles from real communication coaching and business English language training meetings with clients.
