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....

This course was very helpful. It refreshed my memories and made me go back to so many things I thought I would never remember. It helped my writing skills a lot to. A big thank you to the instructors.

Although it should be simple enough, i found it hard to understand the material and sometimes, the videos would end without finishing the content.

I couldn't finish it without purchasing it, in spite of active participation and high scores on all the assignments I had access to.

Great explanation of punctuation rules. However, upgrade costs too much given the amount of materials covered and their complexity.

Lectures must be more interactive. The practice sheets must not be limited to Firefox users, it should function on Chrome as well.

I had a good time learning new things which are generally not told in your academics.

Thanks to UCI for offering it. Best wishes.

It was alright. Thought I would learn more than that, but I'm very thankful for learning about comma structure and so on.

In my opinion, this course needs more space for English grammar, or make a new course for grammar only.

thank you

Thanks, Coursera. I feel a hurdle in identifying tenses. Now, I am able to identify tenses in any sentence.

The sentence examples are very unnatural. I can recognize only some of the sentences in any good reading.

The practise tests were only compatible with firefox. In this day and age, very few people use firefox.

More detailed explanation is needed on the course, and if a teacher is available it would be good

The examples and teaching videos are excellent. But, there should be more exercises for practice.

None of the practise links work in multiple browsers. Hard to think I’m getting my money worth.

Acho bastante monótono e tradicional. Contudo, é explicado de modo simples e funcional.

The content was best but supporting supplementary reader doesn't worked at all.

It was overall, alright. All of the group assignments killed it for me, though.
