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, and commonly confused words—and much more.

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