    you can do that can be the difference between having a successful professional career in any field and not even getting in the door for an interview? You would probably take it pretty seriously and want to know what to do. Now what if I told you that thing is just having good grammar? For some reason, many people now seem to place less value on good grammar. Good grammar is just as important for succeeding in a career as well as getting one, and it is very important to do whatever is necessary to develop it. To say good grammar is important in your professional life and personal life is an understatement. Grammar will follow you throughout your life and be there to either open doors for you or slam them shut depending on your capabilities. Grammar will never leave you and can be one of your greatest tools or your one of your greatest weakness. Susan…

    Grammar - This is extremely important for staff members and ties into maturity as well. Staff who talk with bad grammar look very childish and like they really don’t care about what they’re doing or who sees it. It almost makes it looks like that staff member is being lazy and they just don’t want to put in the effort required to talk in correct grammar and look professional. For that reason I think grammar is extremely important and although mine is not perfect, I strive to use the best grammar…

    I enrolled in WRTG 101 because I was advised it was a requirement for my degree in Management Studies. To be completely honest, it was a class I thought I would struggle greatly in; however, in retrospect, I am glad I took the opportunity to enroll. Even though I usually try to pay attention to the way I structure my sentences and grammar, I had no confidence in my writing skills.

    Barbery is essentially arguing that grammar “is a way to attain beauty,” and for the most part, this is true. The application of grammatical rules is really how one coherently conveys a message to their audience -- after all, grammar itself is what allows speakers to understand one another. The ability to “manipulate” these rules, so to speak, may be what Barbery subsequently means by “applying the rules of grammar skillfully” -- the application of different grammatical rules and processes can…
