Mistake-Free Grammar & Proofreading
A workshop that makes proofreading and grammar fun? Is that possible? You bet! This program is based on the latest research on how adults learn.

It's fast-moving, so you stay interested. It's engaging, so you learn by doing. And it's fun, so you happily give it your all. Mistake-Free Grammar & Proofreading is nothing like the grammar classes you took in school.

This workshop is exciting, engaging, and truly effective in refreshing you on the basics of business English.

In One Fast-Moving Day, You'll Learn:
  • The grammar rules every professional must know
  • All about capitalization and punctuation
  • Painless proofreading
  • Commonly misused words - and how to use them correctly
  • Six key rules for subject-verb agreement
  • Techniques for finding errors in numbers, prices, codes, dates, etc...and lots more!
Who Should Attend

This training is critical for people who want their written communication to be letter-perfect. It's ideal for managers, secretaries, technical writers, editors, and proofreaders who:
  • Have never received formal training in these core skills
  • Have been out of school for a while and need to brush up
It's also great for anyone who uses English as a second language.

Memorable Training With Unforgettable Results!

In this high-energy training, you'll try your luck with Blue Ribbon Bingo…polish your usage skills with Grammar Bull's Eye… and "question the answers" with Punctuation Jeopardy.

The result? The information comes alive for you. You easily see the practical applications. And it sticks with you in a way that pure "book learning" never can.

  • Are you an editor or a proofreader? How to determine which skill your job really requires
  • Proofreading marks: learn what they are and practice using them
  • How to correct writing without changing the meaning
  • Secrets for overcoming monotony and staying alert when proofreading
  • How to create distance from your work so you can catch your own errors

  • The 6 most frequently missed rules for using commas
  • How to use semicolons to improve the flow of your sentences
  • How and when to use colons
  • When you should use quotation marks — and when you shouldn't (By the way, does the period go inside or outside the quotation marks?)
  • Dashes and parentheses (Did you know they are opposites?)
Usage And Form
  • When to use further/farther, affect/effect, continual/continuous. and other frequently misused words
  • 150 commonly misspelled words (a take-home list you'll use often!)
  • Capitalization rules

  • A final quiz that will show how much more skilled and confident you are!
