  • 2 pieces of external correspondence.

THIS TASK COVERS ONE OF EACH OF THOSE.  A second task, with a different workplace scenario and called “The Newbie” is available here.  It takes students through two other pieces of correspondence so that, between the two tasks they'll finish the four required for this standand.  Whew!
