Grammar Essentials

Hands-on Grammar Classes in NYC

Your company’s writing is a reflection of your professionalism, intelligence, and expertise to the outside world. Embarrassing grammar blunders such as misspellings, misused words, and poor sentence structure can confuse your audience and decrease confidence in your business. Even the most advanced writing and editing software programs miss significant grammar errors. In our Business Writing courses at NYIM, you’ll learn how to be your own editor.

This grammar course offers a comprehensive review of grammar rules. You’ll learn how to identify common grammar errors, write effectively for different audiences, and identify the correct form of a word depending on its part of speech.
