BBC Skillswise: Words


Great Britain's normally staid BBC has created a delightful site featuring a series of colorful, targeted language arts lessons in sticky areas such as using apostrophes, avoiding double negatives, joining sentences, etc. The site is charming, but be wary of occasional "Britishisms' such as the present tense "The family walk slowly to the car park"; we Colonials would say "The family walks slowly to the parking lot." No matter. The site is still excellent.
