Welcome to College Writing: The Sentence!

This course will help you master writing English sentences. You will learn about and practice writing basic sentences – simple, compound, and complex. You will also learn how to avoid common errors; sentence fragments, run-on sentences, and comma splices.

Lessons are easy to follow. They include video explanations, reading passages, interactive quizzes, and teacher feedback.

Successful writers use a variety of sentences to make essays interesting and effective. If a writer uses too many simple sentences, the passage is often difficult to read. On the other hand, if a writer uses too many complex sentences, the passage becomes difficult to understand.  A balance of simple, compound and complex sentences not only make an essay more readable, but also adds depth and meaning.
