If you have ever found yourself in a pickle when it comes to where to put the apostrophe, what semi-colons are for, and what to do with commas, then this is the course for you. No longer will you make yourself look dumb by putting “it’s” when you should have written “its”. Did you also know that good grammar makes you appear more attractive to the opposite sex? That indeed is the view of Guardian columnist Hadley Freeman, who says that there is nothing more off-putting when inspecting potential dates on dating sites than misplaced apostrophes and commas.

You can learn at your own pace, and go back over the material as many times as you like. We also provide a few sheets of notes for you to print out and refer to. Do join us for Harry Mount’s useful and amusing Punctuation Masterclass.
