  1. Grammar in a Nutshell is an online resource, designed by Lorna Jennaway Dip. Journalism, Dip. P.E., B.A., Dip. Ed. Admin., M. Ed. Admin. that teaches all aspects of English Grammar using functional grammar and colour. This is the online extension of the very popular Grammar In a Nutshell grammar kit released several years ago, and this online version now allows students of all ages to learn English Grammar in an engaging and interesting manner in a class setting or from the comfort of their own home.
  2. It contains 10 easy online modules that begin with the basic sentence, but finish at full proficiency level for writing and speaking correctly. These modules essentially focus on students aged 8 to 18 and adults of any age who have 'missed out' on formal grammar - including parents and teachers. In addition to these, along with the assistance of a mentor who has English as a first language, they will also be found to be especially useful for migrants, ethnic groups and international students.
  3. Each Grammar in a Nutshell module contains lessons, exercises and assessments that records each student's progress, making this online software product an ideal tool for educators. It also caters for a wide range of student abilities in one class providing for personalised learning through the self-paced lessons that map to the Australian National Curriculum.
