An amazing, and entertaining, way to learn grammar.
Be honest. Who, actually, knows the difference between which or that, or the correct pro-noun for a company? If you do, this probably isn't for you. But for those of us who struggle with our prepositions, punctuation and paragraphs, or feel like hitting our monitors every time a friend misses out a comma on an e-mail, this is the pod cast to listen to. Amazing, informative and fun, I can't get enough of it.
These are great!
These short reminders are handy for brushing up on different grammatical points and helping to improve written English. Brilliant!
Best podcast idea - EVAH!
I've always struggled with grammar, even in my mother tongue (Danish). That didn't make English grammar easier when I started to learn English many years ago. However, Grammar Girl's podcasts are truly outstanding and a great refresher. In many cases I've learnt new rules as well, helping me to improve my written English. Thanks a lot for the show!
