Join Judy Steiner-Williams for an in-depth discussion in this video Practicing the grammar rules, part of Grammar Foundations.
You made it!…The first next step is to give yourself a pat on the back.…You made it through all the nitty-gritty,…tedious discussions of parts of speech and…common mechanical errors.…Congratulations!…You'll accomplish another big step if the next time…you hear grammar and punctuation, you stifle that…"grr"--at least maybe it won't be quite as loud.…To enjoy studying grammar is probably…not a next step for you.…Maybe you have a better understanding of why often…the correct answer of what is right and wrong…is "it depends."…Another step that will continue is reattuning…what sounds right and wrong.…
That step can only be achieved by really wanting…to have the confidence that those words…and punctuation marks you use are correct,…that you are giving a good first impression.…I've included a practice file with sentences…for you to analyze and revise to help you…continue building that confidence.…If you have emails or reports you've written,…you might want to edit them.…Maybe you'll be able to spot some changes that…should be made.…
