The arrangement of words to make a proper sentence can be described as grammar. This was all I know when I was in high school. My English teacher used to point out not only my mistakes but all the other students. She also taught us that grammar could be categorized as word level in which covers tenses and parts of speech. The other category is sentence level that covers phrases, clauses. Although I rarely had sentence structure errors, yet I do have punctuation errors. One particular incident I remember when I wrote an essay on Martin Luther King, she pointed out several punctuation errors. So she told me to revise the document. As I was not familiar with punctuation rules, I was unable to cater to the revisions. She added comments on every sentence where I made punctuation errors, and then I revised the document by correcting all the errors and submitted revised work again.
One of the most important things that I learned in this course was essay writing in MLA format. Initially, I had no idea how to write an effective essay, but after taking this course, I was able to write an essay on several topics. Additionally, I was not familiar with the types of essays such as argumentative essay, compare, and contrast, descriptive and narrative essays, etc. This course facilitated me a lot in learning essay types and how to write an essay in MLA format.
The class taught me a lot regarding grammar. However, I think that I do have some queries and ambiguities regarding punctuation errors. Specifically, punctuations after the coordinating conjunctions. Although I am familiar with few rules of punctuations, yet still I am unable to understand where I had to use a colon and semicolon. Also, I had some issues regarding sentence punctuation after the coordinating conjunctions.
