I Literally just Exploded!

No, not really, but I do love this fun video with a really good message about good grammar.

Beware, it’s not just your classroom teachers who get hot under the collar about the correct use of abbreviation, punctuation and spelling. At university you stand to lose 10% if your essays are not well written. Then at work, if you can’t write a report that looks professional, or you an email to a client that is embarrassing for all of its errors, it can cost you your job. That’s the end of the finger wagging; just take time out to watch the video-it’s time well spent 🙂
