About the Course

Course 1: Grammar and Punctuation Do you need to review English grammar? Have you forgotten the grammar you once studied? If so, this course is perfect for you. The first course in this specialization is a refresher on some tools needed for good writing. It will help prepare you for the other courses. You will need about 10 hours to complete this first course. Writing is a skill and to learn a skill well, you need to practice. In this course, you will watch short video lectures and then practice and discuss what you have learned. Make sure you take good notes and use the peer discussions to ask questions. Then you'll be able to remember the rules you learn in this course when you start writing essays in the next course. After completing this course, you will be able to: - identify the correct verb tenses to use - use commas effectively - utilize several different sentence types - write more effectively in English Please note that the free version of this class gives you access to all of the instructional videos and handouts. The peer feedback and quizzes are only available in the paid version....

I recommend this class to anyone willing to know how to punctuate and use correct tenses in English. The grammar rules are clearly explained and illustrated with many helpful examples.

Excelent course, in a lesson the participant must upload a file, I believe it's a simple err.

Some information couldn't be open using Microsoft Edge.

The others componets are excelents!

Best course for quick revision n grammar rules and usage. It is also perfect for a new learner to have some knowledge. The exercises and assignments add some more value o the course.

The course is quite informative and useful. However, I think the charge of 60e is too high since the skills introduced are both elementary and limited. 10e would be a proper price.

My first online course with Coursera was a great experience.

Refreshingly, I was able to re-learn the placing of punctuations, as well as, using the correct sentence structures.

The course was short and to the point which helped me understanding the use of punctuations specially Comma and semi colon and different types of sentence structures and variety.

The content of the course is excellent; however, the course would be more beneficial if the instructors would provide feedback to the students as opposed to only peer feedback.

The coure is amazing and really helpful! However, not everybody has Firefox, and it is hard to download on the internet, so they may miss the opportunities to take some quizes.

The course is apt for the people who are adept at speaking and amateur in writing. The course definitely improved the way I frame and put out my sentences for readers to read.

I'm very glad to this course, but I suffered to open the links as I'm a mobile user.

I request Coursera to work on that issue;provide the links which can be open in phone,too.

A simple introduction to grammar and punctuation that is well laid out and easy to understand. I explored this course as a refresher, and it served that purpose quite well!

Me encantó! Lo único que no me gustó es que algunos ejercicios dependan de tener firefox en la computadora. Creo que deberían estar disponibles para todos los navegadores.

This course is very useful as It covers the essentials of English grammar. It's help me out of the explosion of grammar rules by presenting them in a combinatorial manner.

This was an excellent review of previous grammar courses I have taken, covering information that will be useful in continuing with the Academic Writing specialization.

Good enough for students who know a little about English writing, but it is a little too easy for international students who have already begun their study in America.

The course is pretty amazing, and the videos are clear and precise. I just wish there are more exercises that I can use to practice my grammar and use of punctuation.

Mostly basic stuff. This is well structured and easy to follow and understand. However, if you are looking for advance grammar and punctuation course, this is not it.

Great class. Some slides show awful colors. I think that could be improved. Also professional transition betwixt slides could give the course a more "polished" look.

I was an awesome course. Week 1 and week 2 was the most helpful. But, I found week 3' and week 4's contents to be given more time than it should be actually given.
