Description
Do your sentences run longer than a page? Or do they hang in the air, waiting for a subject, an object or some punctuation to finish them off? This easy-to-use guide to sentence writing not only teaches you how to overcome run-ons and sentence fragments, but also all of the sentence construction obstacles encountered by anyone who needs to master (or re-master) the English language-all without making you do a single dreaded diagram! You'll learn a sentence-combining approach to writing that goes beyond helping you avoid errors by teaching you how to create sound sentences with variety and style. You'll also find: Clear discussions of rules and strategies for good writing. Easy-to-understand explanations and plenty of exercises, from fill-in-the-blanks to transforming short sentences into longer and more graceful combinations. An answer key at the back of the book to encourage you to work at your own pace and check your answers as you go. Even if you can't spare 30 minutes a day to learn how to write brilliant sentences, Better Sentence Writing in 30 Minutes a Day allows you to customize your learning to take as little as five minutes a day. Just like its companion guides in the Better English Series, this book is just what the teacher ordered!
