Education is the thing that stands between childhood and adulthood, and I don’t mean this in the way that you probably think that I mean it. What I mean is, what separates the men from the boys is the level of their education. There are fully grown children who know absolutely nothing about the world around them, and very young men who could school these adults. This is the purpose of school, to teach people not only knowledge, but how to process this knowledge as well. And honestly, I think it is the latter of these two that is the more important thing to learn. It’s all well and good if you can remember the Pythagorean theorem, but it’s better if you can learn how to critically think so you can know when applying the Pythagorean theorem will help.
Another thing you learn in school, is how to speak English properly. Or at least that’s the idea, in some places it looks like that really isn’t the case anymore. Aside from those outliers though, the English language is taught in school, and mandatory writing makes it so people will actually be able to get some practice in. However, there are some people who think they can coast by without ever writing, and they might be right while they’re in school, but once they leave, they realize they’re solely mistaken. But they’re not out of luck, this is where spelling and grammar checkers come in. Especially with high quality ones like Grammarly and WhiteSmoke, which have a couple of extra features that make them especially worthwhile. Grammarly which is reviewed on Edumuch has one of the best grammar checkers, checking for over 250 grammar rules, and even looking over your text for styling errors, which is something that not every person even knows about. But the real draw, for me at least, to Grammarly (and also WhiteSmoke) is how it goes about correcting your work. It doesn’t just make the corrections and that’s it, no it goes the extra mile. Instead of simply listing the suggested corrections, it tells you why they’re suggesting that specific correction, so you can actually learn from your mistakes. Which makes it a nice way to teach those people who coasted in high school how to fix their mistakes.
Grammarly is a paid application though, but I really do think that Grammarly is worth the money that you’d be spending on it, just so that you can improve on grammar and spelling. Even if you don’t need to improve, Grammarly is still probably going to be great for you. Grammarly has a very user friendly user interface, and it will also catch a lot of the errors that you might miss going over your writing by yourself. Grammarly has helped me out a lot though, as I was one of those coasters in high school, and when I ended up going to college, without Grammarly I probably would have failed. Grammarly really saved my hide, so why not give Grammarly a try?
