I'm in fourth grade, and I just finished the new LAW course. I learned a lot from it. I go to a very good school, but they spend only a few weeks a year teaching us about grammar. I really didn't know very much about the parts of speech except nouns, verbs, and adjectives. I certainly didn't know about helping verbs, linking verbs, and action verbs. I didn't know much about prepositions, adverbs, or different kinds of pronouns. The program gave me a lot of practice in writing different kinds of sentences. I just started the EG20 course, and I like that one even more.
