Then, just head for the online grammar checker and enter your completed text into the text field above.
Once you click the  button, all you need to do is to click an underlined spelling error, style suggestion, or grammar suggestion to see more options.
Then apply corrections where you need them. It will check grammar usage and spelling and give you the final verdict..."
