Tools to Improve Your English Grammar For Bloggers

The Most common problem faced by non native English Speaker is Grammar part of English. This case is also true for me, I’m not a native English speaker and I tend to make lots of Common Grammatical errors and that is something bad for my blog and for writing.

Though I have been learning and trying to get rid of common English errors which I make, Some of them are :

  • Then and than
  • There and Their
  • Space after comma (Required)
  • Space before comma (Not required )
  • Complex sentences

I know there are many other mistakes which I make, and I’m not ashamed of accepting it, because this way I will learn and improve my writing. I have compiled a list of Online tools which you can use to check your Grammar and make your post better.

Spell checker is not an issue, since I use Windows Live writer , Mozilla Firefox and WordPress dashboard to Publish articles, so if I make any minor or major mistake, It has to pass from 3 filter channels, and that make it easy to find out the problem.

PolishMywriting

This is one of my favorite tool to check for Grammatical error on the fly. I just need to add the post and it will check for possible grammatical errors.

LanguageTool

This is another useful tool, check and find out most of common errors I make. You should give it a try and let me know how is it for you.

Spellchecker.net

I guess you may not need to use this one. If you are using tools which I mentioned above, though it’s good to add another useful one in your list.

Do you use any other tool? Do let us know. If you find this post worth sharing, don’t forget to stumble and tweet this post.

    I have the same problem everytime I want to write a post, especially a long one :( I’m still happy with Microsoft Word although it can suggest weird things sometimes

      I know Michael, earlier I also used to use MS word, though I didn’t realized until I saw the HTML code of copied post. That was probably the last time I used MS word for this purpose.

    nice post, English is certainly a problem for us who belongs to the “non native English” countries.

    ms word pretty much solves the problem, but on some very important posts i try to hire a native English proofreader to correct my mistakes. lately, i have been following some good copywriting blogs to improve my English further,

    Primary English speakers don’t realize how difficult the language is to pick up. Although English is my second language, I grew up in the US and am totally Americanized. I think in English but I know it’s much harder for those who have to do translations in their heads.

    I personally couldn’t imagine posting in a different language.

    yeah way more than spell checks one needs grammar cheking tools as well. because spell checker is common and we tend to miss out on d latter. For instance your recent article titled “How to Select Right Affiliate Program” has a grammatical error in the opening sentence lol… So do get hold of a good tool. for pros like u problem doesnt lie in d language but simply typos n errors so get rid of dat. A most *primitive* approach is to use MS Word :P

      Vamsi if you can be more specific what problem you faced with them, I started using them from last 3-4 days and I find them working perfectly fine. Though we can’t expect them to give us 100% error free grammar. Meanwhile I will appreciate if you can use your name while commenting, this will make it easy for us to reply to comments by name.
