My Question is
Why don’t we join the new world and not be too strict on grammar as long the message is right.Please help
I already thought we were too lenient on the poor grammar that we accept.
The deal is that your expertise is judged on your ability to communicate. This is especially true in broad market expertise areas where it’s difficult to tell one expert from another. If you want credibility from the written word, you’ll need to master grammar, spelling, punctuation and sentence structure.
Some tips to improve your grammar:
- Have another set of eyes proofread your work before submitting it.
- Identify your spelling/grammar or sentence structure weakness and create a simple plan to eliminate repetitive mistakes.
- The more you write, the better your grammar gets.
In your specific case, looking only at your email to me; I’d say you should focus on learning more about Capitalization, Punctuation and spacing around punctuation.
