My students love Grammar Girl podcasts, by Mignon Fogarty, who is a professional copy editor. I was surprised at this, since she has sophisticated level of vocabulary. But maybe it is the podcast part, because I overheard students' mimicking her showing off what they had learned about grammar. Who would have thought that grammar would be such a success?

She also has two books out:

  1. Grammar Girl - Quick and Dirty Tricks. This is a handy reference book.

  2. The Grammar Devotional, which is like a grammar tip a day.

You can also sign up for email grammar tips.
