FREE Email Course: No Dog's Allowed
a fun way to finally remember the rules, so you won’t ever make any of the 7 most common spelling/grammar mistakes again
When reading posts, blogs and website content online, it’s obvious that people struggle to remember when to include an apostrophe in a word or which version of two similar-sounding words to use. It may be because you didn’t listen properly at school but it could also be because you weren’t taught grammar and spelling at school – so it is not your fault.
Click the button below to sign up for my FREE 7-part email course to give you a fun way to finally remember the rules, so you won’t ever make any of the 7 most common spelling/grammar mistakes again:
- No dog’s allowed (dogs vs dog’s)
- It’s simple (it’s vs its)
- What about the other Its? (it’s vs its from the other end)
- What is the effect? (effect vs affect)
- Where? Their. (their vs there vs they’re)
- Permission to speak (aloud vs allowed)
- Ice or eyes? (advice vs advise)
Hi, I’m Hazel Reid
Editing a PhD thesis, written in appalling English by a Far Eastern student, was a revelation.
I loved it!
Hunting for meaning, correcting spelling and grammar, searching the Thesaurus for alternative words. I was good at it and he was so grateful. Now I help non-fiction authors, CEOs who’ve written a memoir, entrepreneurs who’ve forgotten grammar and small business owners who skipped English lessons at school, to make their writing the best it can be.
When it rhymes it sticks
Linguists agree, and you have likely experienced it too, that rhyme and rhythm help us remember things. I happen to have a slightly dubious talent for writing doggerel verse.
That’s why each lesson starts with a wee poem I have written to help you remember and make you smile and includes an explanation in plain English.
