Description

WHY?

When dealing with money and numbers we want to project knowledge and confidence. We would never want make a mistake that would result in lost or spoiled business relations - let's say misplace a comma in a price quotation. How we say numbers, what type of currency we use, what symbols and and punctuation are all important and should be learned how to use properly and in what situations. We should also be familiar with numbers in weights and measurements, computer and IT as well as in describing attributes. Doing money and numbers in a sloppy and inconsistent form will make us and our company lose respect and 'face' in the business forum.

HOW?

WQS will teach you the current preferred protocols for typing, writing and saying numbers. We will cover the major currencies in the world and discuss the SI Units for them (For example: for international business should we use RMB, CNY or Yuan? - hint: look up ISO 4217). We will cover the various symbols for the currencies of the world and show how to avoid confusion when speaking of units that are used in several countries (For example: how many countries currently use the 'franc'?). Most business is conducted in USD - United States Dollars - but that is already well in decline. We will discuss some of the proposed replacement currencies and the terminology. We will teach you how to say (and write) fractions, scientific numbers, the prefixes and orders of magnitude. There will be additional information for finance, probability, algebra and so on... these optional classes are not required but are to be taken depending on your current job and interests .
