  1. In the modern digital world, an adult is helped to write programs correctly (the word identifies and corrects errors, SMS messages give out a word by the first letters). But if he wants to repeat the rules, but there is no time for individual work, then you can solve crosswords (the wrong letter will not allow you to solve the word at the intersection), those who have children can go through the program again, checking notebooks, playing various games with the child based on the textbook materials.

  2. To write correctly and express your thoughts clearly, you don't need to learn any rules. You just need to read good books. Best of all-Russian classics.

  3. The first rule is to always reread your text. And best of all, reduce and optimize it. First, it makes it more likely that the recipient will actually read the message and understand its essence. Second, unstructured canvases are a chance to make more mistakes. The shorter and clearer the thought, the better it reads.

    If we talk about self-education, then there are special courses and books. For example, we have published a kind of textbook “Russian without load” – rhymes instead of rules. With the help of short mnemonic rhymes, properly packaged and presented, people can remember the spelling and stress of words. In the end, you need to think — if you are in doubt about how to write a word or where to put a comma, then check yourself. You can do this very quickly and easily on gramota.ru or contact the Vinogradov Institute's Russian Language Reference Center: +7 (495) 695-26-48 (from 11:00 to 17:00).

    Most often, oddly enough, people do not have problems with spelling and punctuation at all. The most common mistakes are the incongruity of words, their use in the wrong meaning, problems with stylistics and appeals, and the use of cliches. All this can be very annoying to the interlocutor, especially cliches — completely unnecessary phrases like “good day”, “waiting for feedback”. Perfect literacy is not expected of anyone, but it is very important to be able to clearly formulate and present your thoughts.

  4. If you constantly train your literacy skills, i.e. write dictation, read enough well-published books or periodicals, it can only decrease due to age-related memory and concentration deterioration, as well as CNS diseases. But in this case, it is not the decline in literacy that should be of concern, but health in general.

    It's a different matter if you are healthy, but you deal exclusively with the Internet, where literacy is formal, do not follow the spelling, grammar, style and punctuation in your comments, do not pay due attention to messages in electronic correspondence. Then literacy declines “automatically”, following the general trends. For example, the dictionary spelling of complex and rare words may give way to a common one (“coordinate” instead of “cardinal”, “future” instead of” future”, etc.), or extra commas may appear in compound prepositions and after imaginary introductory words.

    Dealing with the decline in literacy is very simple. First, you should train yourself to reread and check what you have written. In all cases that are unclear or controversial, use reference books and dictionaries (gramota.ru or therules.ru). Second, if you don't have time for dictation (at least electronically): gramota.ru The proofreader game (reading other people's posts, notes, and comments for errors) is good for developing literacy.

    It will not be superfluous to get acquainted with the profile communities in LiveJournal: livejournal.com or livejournal.com.
