A Quick Guide to Correct Grammar
Without all the Fluff
You don't need a degree in English Literature or Linguistics to use grammar correctly. Most of the grammar mistakes I see are easily avoided.
Confident Grammar is an audio-course that covers most of the basic grammar concepts and principles you're likely to need in daily life, without getting bogged down in the academic stuff you'll never use.
The course is definitely tailored to grammar beginners, or those of us who may have forgotten what a preposition means, how to determine the subject and object of a sentence, or where the apostrophe goes in those tricky cases.
The following selection of topics should give you the idea...
- Prepositions, subjects, objects, and all that jazz
- Avoid the apostrophe catastrophe
- Eliminate common pronoun errors
- Master subject-verb agreement
- Commonly confused words
- Use prepositions precisely
- Words and phrases to avoid
The program is delivered in brief 10 minute tutorials, each of which is crystal clear and easy-listening. I've included a snippet here for you to see (well, hear) for yourself...

In addition to the audio sessions, you also get a workbook with practice exercises and, most importantly, a 57 page ebook called Embarrassing Grammar Mistakes You Must Avoid.
Confident Grammar is very inexpensive as far as e-courses go. In fact, I bought it just to get hold of that handy ebook, which is easily worth the price of admission alone.
