Grammar is often an obstacle for even the most intelligent and articulate of us. The way we handle, or mishandle, language seriously impacts our ability to do justice to our ideas. We want to be clear and compelling communicators, but we worry about being judged instead by our pronouns and clauses. It doesn't have to be that way! You can learn to competently apply the rules and customs of effective language without reliving the agonies of the sixth grade. This offers a review of the key points of grammar, with some attention to punctuation and style. You'll do a self-assessment of your skills and develop helpful strategies for continuous improvement.
