About This Class

How often do you find yourself staring at your writing trying to figure out the intricacies of English punctuation? Things like: where to put the apostrophe or semi-colon, whether you should use a capital letter, how to write numbers or all kinds of similar things.

After more than a couple of decades writing (and believe me more time than I care to admit trying to figure out what goes where), I’ve come up with a few tips to make the whole thing easier. Tips I’m delighted to share in this course.

So whether you’re learning English, learning punctuation or just fed up of asking yourself ‘Where?’ This short course is for you.

It covers the basics on some of the most annoying, everyday parts of our punctuation and ways to get them right first time.

Plus, at the end of the course I’ve included a short multiple choice quiz to reinforce everything you’ve learned.
