Do you feel nervous whenever you’re asked to put something in writing or proofread a document?
When you write, do you write on-and-on without being sure where to break-up the sentence? If so, you’re not alone.
By the end of this course, you will know how to use a comma to separate a sentence into manageable segments, to prevent possible confusion or a run-on sentence. You’ll also be a better proofreader and editor when reviewing other people’s writing.
This is a short and EASY course, because it focuses on one area of punctuation and not several areas, which will enable you to concentrate, understand, and remember the rules better. This course also includes printable practice worksheets, along with the answer keys.
