Effective Grammar Certificate
with Ellen Feld
Write and edit better starting today. Gain confidence in your writing. Improve your communication skills. This course will reinforce the rules you learned in school and teach you some you didn't.
Good grammar doesn't make good writing, but good writing demands good grammar. Whether you're a student or a professional, a career changer or a job seeker, Effective Grammar will equip you to write more effectively from day one. You'll learn it all—from grammar basics to more advanced concepts like parallelism and agreement to the finer points of capitalization and punctuation. After completing this certificate, you'll be a master of commas, complete sentences, common sense writing, and more.
Put an end to grammar mistakes that detract from your work. The grammar knowledge you'll gain will contribute to whatever kind of writing you produce. Everything you learn will elevate your communication skills and help you present polished, professional writing every time.
