English Grammar Review

Even the best writer needs a basic grammar review once in a while. This month-long course  reviews new trends in basic grammar and English usage with an emphasis on recognizing mistakes in the writing of others rather than creating original work. It also deals with the process of proofreading and how it can enhance the quality control of a writer's work.
