These are great!
These short reminders are handy for brushing up on different grammatical points and helping to improve written English. Brilliant!
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.
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!
