The Basics of Writing

Yes, the title says it's the 'basics' but that doesn't mean that it is easy. However, learning about the building blocks of the English language can help you learn new ways to say the same thing, say it in a more or less formal way and as a result, allow your brilliant ideas to come out in a way everyone understands.

Use this guide as a way to brush up on some of the more difficult aspects of writing sentences, or a place to learn new things about the English Language. It is designed to help both native English speakers and English Language Learners.
