"How did that blooper get by me??"
If you have a reasonable grasp of English but keep getting caught with bloopers on your blog or in your newsletter, or if you've been tasked with proofreading other people's work and don't know good systems for doing so, this course is for you.
Learn the best methods for finding and fixing mistakes, which writing situations tend to trip up proofreaders the most and ways to get better and better at producing error-free text.
A diagnostic test at the outset helps you identify your proofreading weaknesses, and two practice tests at the end give you the chance to try out your new skills and see how well you found the typos and errors.
This on-demand video course respects your time by being practical and concise, yet includes handouts and resources that give it lasting value. It applies to those writing blogs, books, websites, signage, letters, emails, contracts and just about anything else in English.
Whether you'll be checking your own work or that of others, you'll learn:
