Want to improve my grammar

2 replies
Hey warrior's

At last I have decided to work on my English grammar, but the thing is there are thousands of books on amazon alone regarding grammar and punctuations.

I am confused about which one to study?

Note: I want to get stuff which deals with every detail regarding grammar, so that If I study it, I am done studying English for the rest of my life.

    Get the associated press style guide.

    It's not strictly for grammar but it'll help you with your writing in more ways than you can imagine.

    Aside from that, grammar for dummies or whatever is cheapest.

    I'd follow that up with one of those 'power words / words that make you sound smart' books and something that focuses on writing for journalism and/or marketing to really nail down your style.

    Reading a lot will also improve your grammar. Get a subscription to a couple of magazine in different niches... Time Magazine, Details and Mens Health would cover all of your bases.

    I'm all about that bass.

      I have felt the same way for a long long time...

      Until I realized I might want to teach myself copywriting "language" skills instead to make up what I felt inadequate.

      In fact, that means studying sales psychology and language to write your ads -- your most effective sales tool.

      Being a native Japanese, I don't command my English with the best grammar, but I really don't let that get in the way of my writing.

      If you're worried about it, perhaps outsourcing to someone at Fiverr for $5.

      Really, just write what's important to you and doing just that will speak to some people and they will find you.

      Better: People might like you more -- you're just like them!
