What this blog is for and about

I also offer personally-tailored, individualized English conversation practice (including etiquette) and coaching in writing techniques. Finally, I edit texts such as magazines, business proposals, memorandums, emails so they are presented in English which does not embarrass you or your organization. For further details, please mail me at: language.etiquette@gmail.com

The way to write interesting history

For all Russians who wish to write in a way which the reader will follow (and not in the bureaucratese which universities here love), listen to this wonderful programme about the murder of a forgotten President of the United States. I recommend you try to write much as the lecturer speaks (cleaned up a bit for the printed page, of course).

President Garfield (seen, right, on his deathbed) was assassinated in the same year as Tsar Alexander II was, but in very different circumstances indeed.
