Description

"Jane Griesdorf is, by far, the best English grammar teacher I've ever had!" said a previous attendee. We think you'll agree. She makes it fun to spot and correct pesky syntax, punctuation, and style problems—simply by giving you the tools to do so. Improve your editing and proofreading skills and gain confidence in your everyday use of English in this dynamic and thought-provoking program. Learn how a deep understanding of grammar can give your writing pizzazz.

  • Understand how the eight basic parts of speech work
  • Perfect your sentence structure: recognize fragments, comma splices, and run-ons
  • Match subjects with their verbs — consistently
  • Recognize dangling participles and other ambiguous words
  • Appreciate the beauty of the subjunctive mood
  • Learn the rules for the comma, apostrophe, semi-colon, colon, parentheses,
and others

* Registration for this program is restricted to LSUC licensees only.
