As a writer you have the ability to capture thoughts, think them through and put them in words. You also know the basic building blocks of English grammar – nouns, pronouns, adjectives, adverbs and so on. And you have a great vocabulary. What more does one need, you may ask?
To get your message across to your readers without ambiguity, a clear understanding of the nuances of the English language is essential. You may be surprised by some of the rules of grammar and punctuation that you will come across while practicing your skills. You will learn how the choice of idioms and phrases can impact the clarity of your text. Being able to identify incorrect usage will be a step in the right direction!
Chillibreeze offers you a chance to improve your writing and editing skills through self-paced learning modules.
The modules are categorized as Grammar, Usage and Punctuation.
Each of the self-paced learning units will give you the opportunity to learn by doing the exercises practically. Once you have tested your existing knowledge on the questions, you will be able to check your answers and learn why they are right or wrong. Each of the questions comes with a clear explanation of the concept behind the answer.
Once you have worked on all your problem areas, you will be able to write as well as edit with more confidence, secure in the knowledge that you have the ability to refine and correct common errors of English usage and a host of other problems of mechanics.
You will have the skills necessary to edit and refine your own writing as well as that of other writers. You will also become aware of common errors in usage, particularly regionalisms, which are considered “non-standard usage” in other parts of the world. You will become a global English writer in the truest sense.
"The test is user-friendly. The test introduces one concept at a time with sufficient examples. In fact, multiple examples are provided to clarify the same "Learning Point". Some of the examples are amusing and keeps the reader interested in the learning and evaluation process. Every correct answer is explained and justified.
This is a very effective way to learn a grammar concept. Most grammar books we use in class are awfully dull. We technical writers use "Fowler's Modern English Usage" or "Chicago Style Manual" in our classes. They are informative books but they are hardly entertaining. Hence, one cannot read them from cover to cover. The Chillibreeze course uses simple and direct language, large font size, few sentences in each page and evaluates the reader after teaching a learning point. This helps sustain the reader's interest in the learning."
"I really enjoyed doing the unit overall. Learned some rather interesting comma uses, ones that I wasn't even aware existed! Please convey my congratulations to the course creators - such courses are a nightmare to create, especially in terms of programming - and they've done exceptionally well."
"Given the variations in the English language and the personal preference of users, it is a challenge to teach the diverse uses of punctuation marks. The content, however, does complete justice, so kudos to the course creators!"
That’s entirely up to you!
You decide on the areas you need help with and sign up for those units. You can work on them at your own pace and in any order.
