Your writing can reflect your credibility as a writer, help you stand out from the crowd, and help you achieve your goals.

-Created based on what you, the student, requested by popular demand: A course that clarifies commonly confused words and phrases.

Do you find specific words and phrases in the English language confusing? Do you often mix them up in your writing creating embarrassing mistakes? For example, who hasn't confused "its" and "it's" or "whose" and "who's"? Do you get tired of looking up the correct usage of these words, but can never remember which is which? I know I do.

That's why I created this course--to solve this problem and help your writing achieve credibility.

Master Commonly Confused Words and Phrases, Fix Your Mistakes, and Avoid the Mistake in the Future

-Why another course on commonly confused words and phrases?

1. This course is unique because many courses like this will show you the difference between the commonly confused words and phrases, but they don't show you how the mistake is made.

2. This course shows the root causes of each mistake. If you want to solve a problem and to avoid it in the future, you need to know how the mistake was made to begin with. Examples in the course don't just tell you why the mistake was made, they show you through examples.

3. This course is unique because it doesn't just show you the mistake and correction. Unlike many courses like this, it shows you tips and tricks to help you avoid the mistake in the future based on the root cause of the mistake.

4. Unlike many similar classes, this course includes exercises to help you practice, apply, correct, and retain what you've learned, using the power of repetition and consistency, which learning science shows will help you retain the material.

5. Retention of the material is key. This solves the problem the causes certain words and phrases to become confused.
