Course 1: Grammar and Punctuation

Do you need to review English grammar? Have you forgotten the grammar you once studied? If so, this course is perfect for you.

The first course in this specialization is a refresher on some tools needed for good writing. It will help prepare you for the other courses. You will need about 10 hours to complete this first course. Writing is a skill and to learn a skill well, you need to practice. In this course, you will watch short video lectures and then practice and discuss what you have learned. Make sure you take good notes and use the peer discussions to ask questions. Then you'll be able to remember the rules you learn in this course when you start writing essays in the next course.

After completing this course, you will be able to:
- identify the correct verb tenses to use
- use commas effectively
- utilize several different sentence types
- write more effectively in English

Please note that the free version of this class gives you access to all of the instructional videos and handouts. The peer feedback and quizzes are only available in the paid version.

The instructor explained the course clearly with sample so it is easy for beginner student to understand. I did the sub course once in a week and did all the tasks. I really recommend this course to take, especially for student who wants to write a research paper

Olga is taking this course right now and found the course difficulty to be very easy.
Grading introductions for 2 hours is the most stupid assignment I have ever seen because you are stuck reviewing profiles of people who can barely write. I would understand it if we were to produce an essay on something interesting but it is a waste of time moving through a ton of info on people you never actually met and have no interest in. How many hellos can you type in two hours?

The explanations make it easier for learners to understand the lessons. I recommend this course to my fellow Filipinos who would like to refresh or improve their English writing skills.
