Check Your English Grammar With This Easy Technique

As an International language, English has been used widely in online world. Whether you use it to write a sales letter, a follow up, ads headline, an article, and so on, you need to use it correctly.

Now, by using search engine (Google, etc), you can check:
-typing error.
-grammatical structure.

This sort of tutorial is intended for you who have some basics in English.

For the first example, if you want to check whether the right word is "below" or "bellow", just type the word in the search box.

Here are the steps:
1. Type the word "below" in the search box and click "Search".
2. When the search result appears, click a website that uses the word to make sure that the website use it correctly.
3. Notice the search result.
4. Now, type the word "bellow" in the search box and click "Search".
5. Repeat step 2 and 3 for the word "bellow".

Here are the signals whether the word is right or wrong:

-The search result shows a list of websites that use the word. In other word, if the word is wrong, the search result will show nothing.

-If you find that both words have search results, notice the number of websites that appear and compare both words. Usually, the right word has more search results.

-Don't forget to notice what is the language of the website. For example, the word "biz" and "bizz" both have many search result. But only the word "biz" is used in the English website.

Sometimes some websites have typing errors. Be cautious about it!

The same technique can also be applied to check a grammatical error.

For example, if you are in doubt which one is the right sentence:

"The brave man swam over the river yesterday." or "The brave man swam accross the river yesterday"?

Follow the steps above, but don't forget to put the (") symbol in the beginning and in the end of the sentence, in order that Google will not cut it.

If your sentence is too long, try to cut it.

For the above example, just type "swam over the river" and then "swam accross the river".

However, you should take care in checking sentences, because not every sentence can be checked with this technique.

One more thing, it is very difficult if you want to check emotions of a sentence. For example, you can not check whether "Would you please...?" is more polite than "Will you please...?" by using this technique.

That's why you should use English everyday on any occassion, so that you will get used to it.
