Course Description

Dashes are commonly used in content marketing and the English language as a whole. 

However, they are not generally used correctly.

One dash that tends to throw writers off the most is the em dash. 

Fun fact, the two dashes that create that “em dash” is approximately the same width as a capital “M,” making it rather accurate in the name.

So, how do you properly use the em dash, and when should you use the en dash or hyphen? 

In this lesson, you are going to learn the answers to just that.

Key concepts covered:

  • What an em dash is exactly
  • How to properly use the em dash
  • What an en dash is and how rarely you will actually use it
  • Understanding when, where, why to use a hyphen
