When will I use these skills?

Writing a professional letter

We are all going to be part of a society during our life. Because of this our opinion does matter. For example, if you have a problem that you believe is in need to be addressed by the city council you could write them a letter. It is important that you know how to write a letter in a professional way in order to gain respect from your readers, get your point across, and persuade your readers to agree with you.

Making a Presentation

All of us will need to present information at one point in our life. It could be in a classroom or even a work place setting. No matter where it is you need to be able to create a presentation that will help you educate and inform. It is also important that you make a presentation that is interesting and keeps the attention of your audience.

Making a spreadsheet

There could be many situations in life that will require you to record information. One example would be if you are put in charge of keeping track of money spendings for a company. Sometimes you would need to use a spreadsheet to make a list in order to sort information. Spreadsheets also allow a way to easily present that information by creating different graphs and charts to display the data.
