Do you or your students struggle with the basics of composition and writing? Poynter’s popular Language Primer focuses on the fundamentals, giving you unlimited access to essays, randomized practice drills and feedback. Once you successfully complete the course, you will receive a certificate you can use to prove your proficiency for a class or a job.
This self-paced course is broken into three sections: grammar, punctuation and word use.
Each section includes essays that explore why the fundamentals matter and what you need to know to succeed as a writer. In addition, each section features a variety of practice quizzes. You’ll not only see what you get right or wrong, you’ll also learn why.
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.
