Do you or your students struggle with the basics of composition and writing? The “Language Primer” focuses on the fundamentals, giving you unlimited access to essays, practice drills and feedback. When you’re ready, take the “final exams” for each section to see how much you’ve learned.

Whether you’re stumped by the difference between active and passive voice, unsure about which spelling of “they’re” or “there” to use or need a refresher on dangling modifiers, this course will help you write with greater confidence.

The Language Primer was specially designed to be an assessment for students in college-degree programs across the country.
