Grammarly!

4 Jun

The creators of Grammarly kindly gave our class the opportunity to try out their premium feature. In return, we are writing about our experiences with the program on our blogs.

Grammarly is an online grammar and spell checker who automatically  lets you know if anything is wrong with your text. You download the program as an extension on google chrome and then you’ll never have to worry about spelling mistakes online again. We were lucky enough to get the opportunity to use Grammarly during our social studies English exam, and it was a great help. I uploaded my text to my Grammarly profile and it made suggestions to how it could improve my language. With the premium feature not only did it correct grammar and spelling but it also detects repeated words and several other small things which can be improved in a text.

Here is a list off all the things you get if you choose Grammarly premium:

★ Grammarly Premium
If you want to supercharge your writing performance and leave no errors unchecked, Grammarly Premium is your answer. Here’s what you get with an upgrade:
