[bs_well size=”sm”]“There is only one way to avoid criticism: do nothing, say nothing, and be nothing.”   Aristotle[/bs_well]

Many people do not have a clear understanding of the ‘nuts and bolts’ of the English language, which makes it difficult for them to use it accurately and confidently. This may be because you were not taught the essentials of using the English language correctly at school – or you’ve just forgotten about things like sentence structure and punctuation use over time.

[bs_well size=”lg”]Unfortunately, poor English usage often produces a writing style and work that is prone to mistakes. No-one likes feeling inadequate, but when other people (colleagues – or worse still, your clients) constantly correct you written English, it can be embarrassing. And this embarrassment can start eroding your confidence in producing written work generally, which can have a knock-on effect on the quality of work you produce, and your willingness to write in general.

Our two-hour English Usage (Grammar Check) course will show you step-by-step, how you can effectively use basic grammar – punctuation, spelling, sentence construction and more.
