Precise punctuation


If you sometimes mix up its and it’s, or you aren’t quite sure of the difference between a colon and a semicolon, take heart. You’re not alone!

But getting punctuation right is a vital part of writing well. Incorrect punctuation can mean that your reader gets a different message from the one you intended. And it’s unlikely to impress your boss, or your customers or clients.

This course will give you a handy refresher on the fundamentals, together with plenty of opportunities to test yourself and make sure you’re getting it right.


As a result of taking this course you will be able to:

  • punctuate accurately
  • review and correct your own work
