Abstract

Communication, one of the necessities to carry out our daily activities consists of oral and written modes. While oral communication is widely acknowledged, the formal mode used in professional aspects of the written form is yet to receive the required attention and importance. Its importance in one’s professional career must be highlighted in one’s school curriculum, quoting its importance. Grammar is commonly stressed upon in language classes, but a deeper grasp of the language's structure is often missing. To effectively convey this idea, it is necessary to understand the student’s perspective regarding their idea of formal writing. With advancement of technology, changes in the practice of writing from paper to digital sources have been observed. With specialized courses being offered on online, the perspective of learning formal writing and its impact on student’s academia and career is aimed to be studied on to ensure effective teaching of formal writing.
