Tip of the Week: Chrome Extension Educates Users On Why Their Grammar is Bad

Tip of the Week: Chrome Extension Educates Users On Why Their Grammar is Bad

Grammar is quite complex, and it can be a problem for some people who don’t write or compose documents on a daily basis. One way that you can correct your writing, as well as learn why your writing needs correction, is by using a free Google Chrome extension called Grammarly.

On the surface, Grammarly might only seem like a spell-checker, but it’s much more than that. Grammarly is both a browser extension and a web-based app that allows users to check their content for spelling and grammar errors. Users can upload their own documents and edit them in the web-based application. Websites that are supported by Grammarly will also inform you of errors made to text, helping you improve grammar in all walks of life. It is worth mentioning, however, that Grammarly doesn’t work in Google Drive, Google’s collection of productivity-increasing apps.

Grammarly works very similarly to how the spelling and grammar check would work in Microsoft Word. Words that are either misspelled or used incorrectly will have red lines underneath them, and the suggested edits will appear on the right-hand side of the screen. Users can click on the suggestion to see more information about the contextual usage of the word, including examples of similar sentences. Of course, you don’t have to use the suggestions provided by Grammarly, but like any writing, having a second opinion helps produce a more fluid message.

Though users can take advantage of Grammarly for free, the premium edition of Grammarly adds another set of useful functions. It provides the following services for a monthly fee:

  • Microsoft Office integration
  • 24/7 support
  • Complex grammar error detection (sentence structure, style issues, vocabulary suggestions, etc.)
  • Contextual corrections
  • A seven-day money-back guarantee

Arguably the best part of using Grammarly is not the fact that it tells you what’s wrong within your document, but why it’s wrong. This helps you in the long run by helping you find negative trends in your own writing, as well as the manner in which to correct them. It’s an invaluable tool for considerably improving your writing, whether you are building proposals, project plans, sales copy, or virtually anything else.
