Grammar Review 2—The Masterclass
Master the next level of grammar, avoid mistakes that land agencies in court, and write documents that stand up to scrutiny.
When you look at grammar reference manuals, do you find yourself confused? We focus on patterns and purpose to make deeper grammar rules easy to understand and apply.
This one-day workshop covers complex grammar, word usage, spelling, and sentence structure. This includes pronouns; adjectives; adverbs; prepositions and prepositional phrases.
We then cover subject/verb agreement; dependent and independent clauses; and sentence fragments, run-ons, and comma splices. Everything covered in this fast-paced workshop has a practical application for workplace writers.
You don’t have to take Grammar 1 before Grammar 2, but many learners do. Both courses stand alone, and they’re better together. Look at the topics covered and choose one or both to reach your next skill level.
