One of adverts I've read recently contained the following: " Your audio and WP skills should include a working knowledge of MS Office and Word for Windows". Could you tell me please, what does "WP" mean?
Hello Marina_i I'd say it means 'word processing' given that it later mentions MS Word. All the best Kirk The LearnEnglish Team
