University of Waikato “Language for Locals” grammar lessons

This contains a series of lessons on grammar errors that are more typically made by domestic students or native speakers of English. They include topics such as apostrophes, capitalisation, disruptive modifiers, sentence fragments, pronoun-antecedent agreement and understanding the difference between who and whom, and much more.
Each tabbed lesson has a video from Youtube, a written lesson, a quiz and explanations for the quiz items.

Use this form to let us know of a resource that you think would benefit other learning advisors working with tertiary students. Thank you in anticipation.
