This course uses a sentence-composing approach to target the most common and serious errors in workplace communication. Instead of learning rules in isolation, you’ll use them right away in your own writing. Grammar for Professionals helps you write complete, correct, and clear sentences; use parallel structure; and avoid sentence errors. You’ll also review punctuation, capitalization, commonly confused words, and much more.

Clear explanations and examples teach key concepts, and activities for writing and editing help you practice what you learn. Each lesson ends with a wrap-up activity and quiz, and a pre- and post-assessment track your overall learning.
