Thanks for the lectures I learned so much about grammar. I usually do not speak very grammatically.

Thank you, Prof Hendershot! I just finished the course, and it has been very helpful. I wish a recommended workbook with answers had been part of the course. Shortly before finding out about Educator.com I ordered the book Understanding and Using English Grammar (3rd edition) Workbook. Its sequence of topics are slightly different from this course, but now I can practice what I learned from you as I wait for the Advance Grammar Course.

Thanks again.

(P.S. Please comment on any incorrect usage above. Thanks.)

The idioms I'm having trouble with is the ones they test on the SAT's.

For example, you are 'angry with' someone, but you are 'angry over' something. I not sure if you can get 'angry on'anything.

I learned recently that these count as idioms too, even if they are not as wordy as "cats and dogs"

Are these types of grammar included in this course, in a different section? Or are they pushed into Advanced Grammar? Because I need more practice with these!
