Description

Welcome to Punctuation Basics, where you will improve your writing by building up your understanding of basic punctuation.

My name is Jason Link, and I’m a published writer and a former English instructor. I have taught students from all over the world and have had the opportunity to teach in the US and abroad. For over five years, I lived in Nicaragua and during that time, I taught English and writing to students from a variety of backgrounds and cultures, many of whom did not have English as their first language. I’m privileged to share all of this teaching experience with you in this course.

Throughout this course, I will share with you straightforward explanations on how punctuation works. We will go over:

  • end marks

  • commas

  • colons and semicolons

  • quotation marks

  • apostrophes

  • dashes

  • parentheses

By the end of this course, you will have a strong understanding of punctuation basics. You will develop a new confidence in your writing.
