Grammar!

Maybe you want just enough grammar so you don’t make stupid mistakes.

Or maybe you want to use grammar like a concert pianist plays the piano.

We’ve got courses for both those desires. And you’ll be surprised at how fun we make it.


Grammar 1: The Basics

Do you panic when you punctuate? Does grammar make you say, “grrr!”

Grammar I teaches the basics of grammar, just enough so you won’t make errors that show you in a bad light. The basics are not that difficult to master…if you take this course and leave with our invaluable Grammar 1 reference guide. You’ll be amazed at how quick quickly your competence and confidence will grow.


Grammar 2: Expertise and Finesse

Do you aspire to be an aficionado? The one everyone turns to for grammatical advice?

Grammar 2 teaches the picky (but important) details of grammar, and will show you how to manipulate your sentences and punctuation not just correctly, but artfully. You’ll become a grammar expert—not to mention a better writer. As a bonus, you’ll leave with our invaluable Grammar 2 reference guide.

Notes

These are not English-as-second-language courses. It’s fine if English is not your first language, but you must speak and write it fluently.

If you feel you’re solid with the basics of grammar, you may go straight to Grammar 2. If you’re in doubt about this, start with Grammar 1; it will be valuable even if some of it is review.
