What Will I Learn?
  • At the end of this course, you will truly understand that a “comma punctuation mark” serves as an important purpose in writing. It shows readers where to pause, where to separate a sentence so the written information will not be misinterpreted, and helps to clarify the meaning of written language.

Requirements
  • You should have basic English reading and writing skills.
  • You should have Adobe on your computer to open the practice worksheets and print them.
  • You’ll also need a media player (such as, Windows Media Player) on your computer to open MP4 files, so you can view and listen to the lectures.
Description
  • 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.


This is information you don’t want to pass up!

I look forward to meeting you in class!
