    One thought on “English Grammar Boot Camp

    1. 11811 (Eleven) on said:

      English is truly the illegitimate bastard child of Latin and Germanic It often doesn t make any sense This had some interesting content but I had to fast forward through a couple particularly boring lectures Grammar geeks should dig this.

    2. Peter on said:

      Not a Boot Camp More Like A Shoe ShineProfessor Anne Curzan is knowledgeable about grammar, but her lectures belie the course title The lectures are cursory and repetitive Often she covers trends in grammar and not the basics If you are looking for something to learn grammar skills from the ground up, this course is not for you If you are already pretty good at grammar, English is not your first language, and you re looking for a bit of polish, this course might be what you need Even if y Not a [...]

      Enjoyable but not terribly exciting I m a huge grammar geek, but I didn t find these lectures particularly compelling Curzan is well versed and committed to giving an honest picture of where English grammar is I did appreciate her coverage of current issues and her attempt to be non biased about contemporary changes However, this is not my favorite book or course on English grammar or linguistics.

      I enjoyed this series of lectures and it has, I think, left me flexible and open minded about grammar, although I did end it thinking that maybe I wasn t quite so obsessed with the topic as I d thought i.e I enjoyed this but not enough to consider doing a whole degree in it

    6. Anne on said:

      Interesting for the history and musings on the changeable nature of our language.

    7. Elizabeth on said:

      As a writing coach who aims to do this sort of clarity, I admire the balanced style neither pedantic nor overly loose The lecturer has a talent for explaining challenging concepts with charm I was not expecting to enjoy this as much as I did
