If you think the semicolon is a small organ situated between your small and large intestines, you definitely need this DVD! Those little dots and slashes and marks seem simple enough, but they're insidious little creatures! The English language is filled with tricky and obscure rules of punctuation. This DVD will explain these rules and improve your writing skills.

The only thing I'd really complain about is the fact that this video starts with the period. Now, I'd assume (and hope) that everybody knows how to use a period. That's where I get groans. If they'd gloss over the period, they could spend more time and detail on comma rules, which is where everybody needs work (sometimes including me).
If you're looking for a boring, staid presentation of punctuation rules to put your students to sleep, this ain't the place. If you're looking for an exciting, up-to-the-minute presentation of punctuation that will make your students instant English majors, this isn't that, either. What it is is an excellent effort, a good attempt to take an incredibly dull subject and make it entertaining. And you have to give them credit for that.
