NiE Grasping Grammar

Good grammar is the key to all good communications. Some people think learning the boring rules of grammar that you are forced to study in school, is outmoded and useless, but grammar is what helps guide our day-to-day speaking and writing. The correct use of grammar keeps you from being misunderstood and lets you effectively express your thoughts and ideas.

Grammar is the study of words and the way they work together. It's all about choosing the correct words, putting words in the right order and inserting the correct punctuation marks, to get your point clearly across to a reader or listener.
