Grammar Essentials

Remember sitting through those tedious grammar and style lessons back in grade school? Who remembers the difference between a conjunction and an interjection? Let's face it, Schoolhouse Rock was a long time ago. After years of email, texting, chat systems, and other popular communication methods, the rules of writing often give way to convenience and slang. While everyone makes this shift, there’s also nothing which makes a person look less professional than using the wrong form of “to/two/too” or writing an email in text talk.This course is designed for managers, supervisors, team leaders or anyone who needs to know how to use grammar effectively within their organizations.  

After completion of this course, session participants will know how to:

  • Define grammar and discuss its importance and correctly use different forms of nouns and verbs
  • Identify the roles of pronouns, adjectives and adverbs
  • Define and use prepositional phrases, conjunctions and interjections
  • Write effective sentences by identifying sentence elements
  • Correctly using phrases and clauses
  • Understanding sentence classifications
  • Write sentences that follow the subject-verb agreement rule and are parallel in structure
  • Improve sentence structure by fixing sentence fragments, avoiding run-on sentences, writing in active voice and avoiding split infinitives
  • Choose appropriate words for clear communication by avoiding redundant and slang expressions, frequently misused words, spelling errors and attach prefixes and suffixes to words
  • Punctuate sentences properly by using commas, parentheses, apostrophes, quotation marks and other marks
  • Apply capitalization rules and guidelines for spelling out numbers
  • Differentiate between synonyms and antonyms
  • Recognize and use homonyms
