Get reacquainted with the parts of speech. Don't worry! There's no painful memorizing involved. With these fundamentals in your back pocket, you'll learn how to choose the right word from pairs that sound alike, but have very different meanings. 

 

Then you'll learn about subjects and predicates, the very foundation of sound sentence structure. You will build a grammar vocabulary and discover the value of using a dictionary as an everyday grammar research tool.
