Beginner Beginner

There’s something about grammar that terrifies us even into adulthood, but anyone who has to write for work or wants to write for personal fulfillment needs to feel confident about using English properly. If you’re worried about your command of usage and correct punctuation, grammar, and spelling, here’s a chance to refresh yourself on the basics and improve your grasp of what works and why. This class will provide an overview of parts of speech, how to use contemporary tools such as spellcheck (and why not to rely on them), common confusions and misuses, and extensive resources for further study.
