Looking for an interactive way to brush up on my punctuation skills.

2 replies

I need to brush up on my punctuation skills. I know that I could read a book or use guides on the web. However, I would like to find a method that is a bit more interactive.

Ideally, finding a short class or training course would be great.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I believe short courses would help but still I might suggest for you to just self study because base on my experience much of what I learned is just my own effort on studying.

    The best advice I heard on punctuation was this: consider them like units of pause.

    Comma is the shortest pause, then semi-colon, then colon, then full stop.

    And often usage is not a matter of right and wrong but style.

    The best way to learn is to set yourself daily practice sessions which involve reading about the theory, then reading published articles in newspapers (or books) to see how it's done. The you look at your past writing and correct it according to what you have learned.

    Keep drilling it everyday and you'll soon get there. If you need further help, feel free to message me as I developed a course for my own personal development that might help.
