Finishing the Dictionary Course gave me more than I ever got from going to school. Sally (Canberra)
I learned how to use a dictionary. I learned where words go into groups and sentences. I learned all the different things in a dictionary, what they stand for, and so on. It is going to help me through college, so I will be able to understand all I am reading, and so I will be able to look up words in a dictionary for which I do not know the meaning of. A. M. (ACT)
Before I started the Dictionary Course I had always hated grammar. It was something to be avoided. The Dictionary Course changed that. Now after having done the Grammar and Communication Course as well, I really feel I have a pretty good understanding of basic grammar. It is no longer that ogre in the dark. I can now engage in it. It feels great! W. M. (Canberra)
How to Use a Dictionary Course gives you the mental tools to understand parts of speak, punctuation, conjunctions, colons – and all sorts of other gems that my head has been missing all my life. L. E. (Canberra)
