  1. What is the age and grade level for the courses?

    The courses are not age specific. They don't target any particular age group in content or delivery. The courses can be, and are being, used by both children and adults alike. However, for the purpose of this question I will try to be a little more specific.

    Basic grammar course: Age 9 or 10 to Adult

    Intermediate grammar level 1: Age 11 or 12 to Adult

    Intermediate grammar level 2: Age 11 or 12 to Adult

    Punctuation course: Age 9 or 10 to Adult

    Essay course: Age 11 or 12 to Adult

    If you are not sure which course is the right course for you, please feel free to take our tests by clicking on the link below. If you pass a test, you most likely don't need that course, and should look toward a more advanced grammar course.

  2. How can the courses be appropriate for both children and adults?

    "The lessons are not too simplistic, but take a basic path, which makes them suitable for youth or adult. There is none of the flash that most recent kid-oriented stuff is so prone to." S.A. McUmber-House

    The courses are appropriate for anyone learning English grammar and punctuation for the first time and/or for someone who just needs a refresher.

  4. How long does it take to complete the courses?

    Cozy Grammar Course - Basic

    Average length of time to complete would be between 30 and 40 hours.

    Cozy Grammar Course - Intermediate Level 2

    Average length of time to complete would be between 30 and 40 hours.

    Cozy Punctuation Course

    An average would be approximately 25 to 35 hours.

  5. What does "reproducible workbook" mean?

    A reproducible workbook is a workbook that you are legally allowed to copy. All of our workbooks come with reproducible rights.

    Only the "workbook/study guide" portion of the courses are granted reproducible rights. This means that you are authorized to make photocopies of the exercises and tests for your personal, classroom, or other educational use. However, rights are not granted to reproduce the book for profit or resale. The authorization agreement is included in the back of each workbook.

  6. Can I make copies of the Videos/DVD's?

    Please note that reproducible rights have NOT been granted to the DVD's. Copying of the video/on screen portion, under any circumstances, without express written permission from Splashes From The River Inc., would be a violation of national and international copyright laws. Violators will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

  7. I am an adult who just needs a refresher course in these subjects. Would these courses work for me?

    Our courses are perfect for review for anyone who just needs to "brush up" on their basic skills. With "time management" being a key issue in the lives of most adults, utilizing our teaching dvds, with on-screen instruction, far outweighs the amount of time it would take to slog through hundreds of pages in a dry textbook.

    One of our customers had this to say...

    "I am very satisfied with The Basic Cozy Grammar Course. The reason I purchased this course is that this fall, I have decided to go back to college after 20 years. This course is a perfect stepping stone to build my confidence in writing properly. I am only half way through the lessons, but I just had to commend you on the excellent course." Sharon L.

  8. Do the videos/DVD's come with "public performance rights"?

    We authorize public viewing of the videos/DVD's in educational classroom settings. These include libraries, educational institutions, home schools, and corporate employee training situations. However, copyright restrictions expressly prohibit copying of the videos/DVD's under any circumstances. If you are unsure as to whether or not you would be infringing on the copyright, please feel free to e-mail us with your questions at cozy.grammar@gmail.com

  10. Are your courses homeschool friendly?

    The format of our courses address audio, visual, and tactile learning styles, which means that they can be used with all of your homeschooled children no matter what their personal learning style.

    Our courses provide an on-screen instructor as well as written exercises and answer keys, which save you the time of having to prepare lessons and look for materials.

    We accept purchase orders from businesses, libraries, educational institutions, non-profit organizations, and government offices in the United States and Canada. Purchase Orders may be mailed to:

  12. Can I play the DVD's in my region/country?

    The Cozy Grammar Series of DVD's are region free (code 0) and can be played in any country.

  13. Your store site doesn't seem to be working properly for me.What should I do?

    With the most recent onslaught of viruses, many people have been downloading patches. Many of these patches changed the settings on your computer, including that of your internet browser (like Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator), to not accept internet cookies. If your cookies are not enabled, this site does not work properly--you can't "add to your basket". If you experience any problems placing an order, please don't hesitate to call 250-923-8934.

  14. Do you have catalogs available?

    To save trees, we have decided not to publish a paper catalog. The "Cozy" product catalog will only be featured on the web. We think you will find that the web version provides more information than we could supply in a catalog, while leaving a smaller footprint on our planet. Thanks for understanding.
