In a world where communication is mostly digital, spelling and grammar have never been more critical.
People form an opinion of you based on your emails and messages, and this can be cumbersome for people who struggle with their spelling and grammar.
Professionals admit to feeling that they need to improve their writing skills to communicate more effectively with their colleagues or make a stronger impression on clients. For students, small mistakes can significantly impact final grades.
Thankfully, there's Grammarly's writing assistant. It's an excellent tool for improving spelling, grammar, and overall writing ability. It goes beyond being a spell-checker - it's like having another pair of eyes on everything you write, as you write it.
Here are five reasons you need Grammarly's writing assistant:
It takes spelling and grammar to another level
Most people think that the spell-checker on Microsoft Word or similar programs catches every mistake. Grammarly's writing assistant not only detects simple grammatical mistakes, but it also identifies things like word redundancy (when words like "really" add little to no value).
The Premium version even catches word overuse (when the same word has been repeated many times), and suggests robust alternatives to make your writing more engaging for whoever is reading it.
It has a tone detector
Grammarly knows that tone is the key to persuasive writing. By analyzing your word choice, phrasing, punctuation, and even capitalization, Grammarly's tone detector can identify your message's tone and offer solutions before you hit send.

It helps you communicate more effectively
With Grammarly's writing assistant, you can set goals to get tailored writing suggestions based on your objective and audience. These customizable goals include audience (general, knowledgeable, or expert) and formality (informal, neutral, or formal).
The Premium version also allows you to select domain (academic, business, general, email, casual or creative).
For example, using industry-specific language when writing to experts is useful, but not so much when emailing someone with general knowledge on the subject, and vice versa.
Furthermore, writing in a formal tone is essential when dealing with a client, while a casual tone works fine when messaging a close colleague.
It allows you to communicate with confidence
Users commonly praise Grammarly's writing assistant for increasing their confidence in their communication. You can feel more comfortable and work more efficiently by no longer needing to obsessively re-read emails or assignments before hitting send.
It's even a great tool for non-native English speakers. Not only does it assist with English writing skills, but it helps give a better understanding of the language overall.
It's super easy to use
There are a few easy ways to use Grammarly's writing assistant. If you download the Grammarly browser extension, you'll be able to directly access Grammarly's writing suggestions from Gmail, LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, and most other sites on the web.
You'll know it's working when you see a green G in the lower right corner of the text field you're writing in. Basic writing corrections will appear inline, and clicking the green G allows you to open a more robust pop-up editor to access Premium suggestions.
You also can add the Grammarly Keyboard to your iPhone or Android device to write clearly and effectively in any app, on any website. And if you need to write a longer document, there is the Grammarly Editor (sign in to your account to access it), or download Grammarly's add-in for MS Office (available for PCs) and native desktop apps (PC and Mac).
Whichever way you use Grammarly, it always offers an excellent user experience.
If you would like to step up your writing skills, consider Grammarly. It's super affordable at just $11.97 per month for an annual Premium subscription, or you can start with the free version.
