Grammar, some days it’s a clear as a smog filled morning. In this two-hour refresher course you’ll learn the basic rules of grammar and what it actually is.

Grammar is not spelling, it’s not punctuation. Grammar is the structure of language, namely morphology (basically, the way words are formed from roots and affixes), phonology (the system of sounds in a language), and syntax (the way phrases and clauses are formed from words).

We take the dry rules and make them fun with jokes, memes and examples.
