The Internet Grammar of English

As you may know there is a degree of concern amongst employers generally about the standard of grammar displayed by graduate employees.  This is reflected in the views of the legal profession and in members of the judiciary.

With this in mind you will find it useful to access the following website:  http://www.ucl.ac.uk/internet-grammar/home.htm which provides a very useful set of online exercises in grammar and punctuation which has been designed specifically for university students.
