English is a world language and although English is not my mother tongue, it is a language I use a lot in my work and with partners all over the world.
Although there are many native-born people who can use English from a young age, spelling mistakes are still common and especially serious for non-native speakers who let me learn the language. English as a second language and usage is still limited, having a tool to help correct spelling errors and correct basic syntax errors is really a great thing.
After learning and using a lot of debugging tools from free tools to paid tools, so far I only use one tool, Grammarly since 2018 with projects my english project.
I’ve used my main account and the group buys share accounts, but these types of accounts work well, you fix English spelling and grammar errors very well.
That’s why such a good tool deserves to be used and shared so that everyone can benefit from Grammarly.
What is Grammarly?
Grammarly is an online English grammar and spelling checker that supports cross-platform Windows, MAC, iOS, Android, Microsoft Office, Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and Microsoft Edge. Grammarly’s outstanding feature is the ability to check and complete English text according to the context set by the user.
I happened to know Grammarly through a friend because I have a project using English but I am not a native speaker. You suggest or try using Grammarly. And I’ve been using Grammarly ever since (since 2018).
I often use Grammarly to check English grammar and correct basic mistakes. That’s right, the basic mistakes guys. Grammarly is not as smart as many of the reviews you read online.
This tool is still evolving. At the time I updated the content of this article (July 2021), Grammarly was much more powerful than before, the features were more complete and the ability to correct errors was also “smarter”.
As I understand it, Grammarly is like a machine language. The foundation of Grammarly is a huge source of language data collected and processed by the parent company, based on AI (artificial intelligence) technology.
- Grammarly’s history begins in 2009, founded by Alex Shevchenko and Max Lytvyn. The company is currently headquartered in San Francisco (USA).
- Up to this point, it can be said that English is the best machine learning standardized language.
Among the current English learning applications, Grammarly is the leading digital tool to practice English writing skills. You can use Grammarly in conjunction with other English learning programs

Steps to use Grammarly premium account
To make it easier for beginners to use Grammarly premium, I summarize how to use Grammarly on a computer as follows:
- You log into your Grammarly premium account
- Open a text editor. This editor connects to the Grammarly server: it can be a web browser, MS Office or the Grammarly desktop app.
- Enter the text you need to check or upload the text you need to check. You can type text here or copy/paste from another source.
Enter the text you need to check or upload the text you need to check
- Set the usage context of the text under test (this step is very important)
- Grammarly automatically detects errors and suggests corrections.
- You click on the position of the word or sentence that Grammarly announces to correct (1) or to change it to be more suitable (2) or you can keep it the same (3). These suggestions are highlighted by Grammarly by color.
On mobile, Grammarly is the equivalent of other input keyboards. Personally, I find using Grammarly on mobile devices will not bring out the full effect of this language tool.
As soon as you enter the text to be checked into the editor, Grammarly asks you to choose a text style (context) – Set goals – for the text to be checked.
The AI technology is evident when Grammarly asks you to choose the context for the text under examination.
Below this Set Goals setting, there is an option “Show Set Goals when I start a new document” you can uncheck if the documents later have the same usage context.
Or check this option when you have many different text styles, used for many different purposes. Then, each text you just entered will be suggested by Grammarly to choose an editing context.
Grammarly provides contextual spell checking
You can also change the settings at any time, by accessing the “Goals – Adjust goals” function in the vertical menu on the right.
You can change contextual spell check settings at any time.
How does Grammarly check English spelling and grammar?
How Grammarly checks English spelling and grammar
- Critical errors are highlighted in red (pink) by Grammarly.
- For semantic or punctuation errors, Grammarly is highlighted in purple (light, or purple).
- Word repetition errors, like having 1 word but repeating many times in the text, causing a feeling of boredom for the reader… are marked in green by Grammarly.
- Errors in word structure (word order in a sentence..) are highlighted in blue by Grammarly.
Grammarly gives quite detailed editing suggestions
When you click on this spot on the text, Grammarly gives VERY DETAILED editing suggestions: suggesting how to correct it and explaining why it should be corrected, and how it should be corrected.
This is a point I find very valuable in Grammarly. It’s no different, you’re being guided by a teacher or someone more experienced.
Grammarly has two types of accounts: free and premium (Grammarly Premium account). The difference between these two accounts has already been written many times, I will not mention it here anymore.
Basically, a premium account gives you the ability to check longer text and more options for more accurate spelling and semantic detection and correction suggestions.
From my experience, Grammarly can do the following “jobs”:
- Fix errors in prepositions and punctuation.
- Correct the error of passive sentences.
- Fix sentences too long.
- The suggested word change repeats many times.
- Vocabulary spelling errors.
- Check for plagiarism
Summary of the salient features of the Grammarly premium account have many apps:
1. Real-time grammar correction
I often use Grammarly to check the English grammar of a long text written by me on my laptop. I downloaded the Grammarly software here to my computer and then proceeded to install it. Sign in, then enter text into the test.
Grammarly’s text input allows me to type as far as I can (when the computer is connected to the internet). This allows me to correct errors immediately.
Errors such as punctuation, wrong words (wrong 1-2 words in a long word, but the wrong meaning of words, Grammarly is also “blind”), paragraph errors, word repetition errors, etc. are all suggested by Grammarly to correct.
You can also type the entire text somewhere, and then copy/paste it into the Grammarly Editor. In terms of the English grammar checking feature, there is currently no application or software of any service that can be better than Grammarly. Grammarly strikes a balance of three factors: price – features, and ease of use.
You can use a Grammarly Premium account in a variety of environments.
Grammarly’s text editor is also quite similar to the spell checker of Microsoft Word and Google Docs. Grammarly will underline words and sentences that are found to be incorrect, and when you click on them, the tool will suggest changes to be made.
In December 2017, Grammarly brought the Grammarly keyboard to the iOS and Android app markets.
Plagiarism checker on one Grammarly Premium account
2. Pretty high accuracy
Grammarly’s English grammar checker has been tested by many people. Otherwise, Grammarly would not have been consistently rated by bloggers.
To be honest, Grammarly’s English text checking feature is not new, there are many other tools that also have this function like ProWritingAid or Ginger, but the price of these tools is either too expensive or the speed is not. fast, so it is not popular, not suitable for the majority of users.
Suggestions for correcting English grammar errors on the Grammarly app
Speaking with precision doesn’t mean Grammarly understands what you’re trying to say. This tool only understands the rough side, but the deep meaning is quite “ambiguous”. That’s why Google Translate still ranks first in terms of “understanding what users are typing”, even though Google doesn’t have a separate program.
3. Easy-to-understand error correction instructions
Grammarly shows you text errors in color, and when you click on that location, Grammarly gives you one or more suggestions to choose from. But not every error needs to be fixed. If you see it right, then you can press the skip button (slash).
In WordPress website
An interesting point, Grammarly “hates” passive sentences. When a passive sentence appears in the text, the tool will notify you. Perhaps this is a characteristic of Anglo-American culture: initiative (?).
Grammarly allows building context for the text in need of editing, as I wrote above. In addition, Grammarly also allows you to choose, put in the My favorite dictionary a number of words that you like (or often) use. Next time you edit your text, Grammarly will prioritize the words in here first.
Grammarly also detects word repetitions and suggests equivalent words to replace them.
Instructions for checking plagiarism with a Grammarly Premium account
Experience quickly the plagiarism check feature on Grammarly
One very valuable feature on Grammarly is the Plagiarism Checker.
- To quickly experience this feature, visit https://www.grammarly.com/plagiarism-checker , no need to register, then paste the text to be checked into the edit box, and press the “Scan for plagiarism” button “, Grammarly will evaluate and give the test results quite quickly. However, to see detailed reviews you need to sign up for a paid Grammarly account.
To use this feature, on the Grammarly text editor, go to “Plagiarism” in the bottom right corner, as shown in the following image:
Instructions for checking plagiarism with a Grammarly Premium account
Then Grammarly will automatically check the text and give a notification about the level of copy (unique 100% or coinciding with an existing text). If your English text has duplicates, then Grammarly will point it out, as you can see in the image below:

Compare Grammarly with ProWritingAid
Up to now, Grammarly is the most preferred tool for checking English text grammar because of its simplicity, efficiency, and price (not too expensive). In the process of supporting you to use Grammarly, many of you suggested that I find another tool with equivalent features to Grammarly. And I found ProWritingAid.
Compare Grammarly with ProWritingAid
So Grammarly vs ProWritingAid, which tool is better? The quick comparison below should clarify this somewhat (I will have a more detailed post on ProWritingAid).
|User Interface: Grammarly is better||Easy-to-use design interface, simple and professional text editing interface, suitable for new and experienced users.||ProWritingAid’s user interface is not as convenient as Grammarly’s. It will take you some time to get used to how to use this tool.|
|Feature: Better ProWritingAid||Grammarly has fewer features than ProWritingAid, but it is better than ProWritingAid in its ability to check plagiarism (only works for English documents).||ProWritingAid has some more in-depth features than Grammarly. However, ProWritingAid limits a maximum of 50 plagiarism checks on 1-year payment plans.|
|Error Monitoring: Equivalent.||In my opinion, Grammarly is suitable for texts on general topics and underperforms for deep technical writing.||ProWritingAid supports very well for descriptive and narrative texts.|
|Price: ProWritingAid is a bit more expensive.||Grammarly’s paid plans range from $11 to almost $30 a month.||ProWritingAid’s paid subscriptions range from $70/year to $240/year.|
|Usage environment: ProWritingAid supports more.||Grammarly now supports both MAC and Windows, Android and iOS||ProWritingAid supports all usage environments that Grammarly currently supports. Also supports Google Docs and Scrivener.|

Common mistakes when using a Grammarly account
According to Grammarly announced, a Grammarly account can be used on 5 devices, with 300 documents a month (corresponding to 150000 words/month). You can view the details of the restriction policy for any Grammarly account here: https://support.grammarly.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000090911-What-are-the-limitations- when-using-Grammarly-
- GRAMMARLY ONLY SUPPORTS LOGIN MAXIMUM: 5 DEVICES.
- GRAMMARLY’S LIMIT TEST NUMBER IS 100,000 CHARACTERS ONCE.
Or up to 150,000 characters (including spaces) in 1 month or 300 text files/month.
What is a text file? If you use the Grammarly for Desktop app, you will see small boxes containing text. You can create a maximum of 300 new cells a month.
If you are confused here, then I would like to say, you can use it freely, because almost every little, very rarely when you reach the upper threshold.
- USE YOUR OWN ACCOUNT or GENERAL ACCOUNT (SHARE ACCOUNT)
Grammarly is generally an English text checking tool. If you use it as a tool, it doesn’t matter public or private, as long as it works. You can install an extension (Add-in) for Chrome browser (MS Word), so that this tool checks grammar while still ensuring the necessary privacy.
- If you use Grammarly as a tool for both archiving and checking, this is where the individual factor is worth considering. You want My texts to be kept as private as possible. In this case, account personalization is worth your consideration.
- Personalization like?
– Use your own assigned account.
– Sign up or upgrade to a premium account according to your email.
– Set password and 2-layer security, For example, when logging in, it is required to enter a verification code sent from your phone or a verification code from a code generator application like Authy.
- TEST SPEED SLOW TIME, FAST TIME
This usually happens rarely, but sometimes it happens. That you typed it but Grammarly didn’t check anything, just stood there.
There are many reasons: because the speed of the internet connection at peak hours is congested, because of software conflicts, because you have just updated the operating system because you use 2 accounts on 1 device… and because the Grammarly server is upgrading. level. Treatment

Check if Grammarly is upgrading the server.
- Method 2: try to bring the computer to the cleanest and most stable state possible. Then reinstall and log in to Grammarly.

- TOO MUCH LOGIN ERROR
This is a common error for accounts that are shared widely or when you sign in to the same account too many times. Grammarly often gives the message “Sign-in is disabled because of too many attempts. Try again later“. This error, as I understand it, is that when logging in to multiple devices at the same time, many times in a row, it will be prevented from accessing by Grammarly’s “overload protection” system.
- TOO MUCH LOGIN ERROR
How to fix: wait 5 minutes to 24 hours to log in again. If the error persists, contact the vendor for detailed support.
- LOGIN CORRECT PASSWORD BUT ACCOUNT LOGIN ALREADY: This is a case of being “splashed” even though the account is logged in with the correct password and email. Most of these errors occur when you log into your Grammarly account on a browser that has used another Grammarly account before. Common fix: Clear all history and clear browser cookies, then log back in, 100% success guaranteed. If still not, you can see more detailed instructions from Grammarly at the following link: https://support.grammarly.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000089911-I-cannot-log-in-with -my-correct-login-details Unable

- TEMPORARY ACCOUNT LOCKED ERROR: This error occurs when you log in on many different devices or use it on too many devices at the same time. At that time, Grammarly will send a warning of suspected account theft as shown below. Fix: change password.
Notice of account lockout “Your Grammarly Account Has Been Locked for Security Reasons”
- GRAMMARLY LIFETIME ACCOUNT: An account called a lifetime account is a one-time premium account and is used forever, provided that: the service provider still exists. Therefore, a lifetime account will save a lot of costs for users.
For Grammarly, there is no lifetime account. Check out the subscription plans here: https://www.grammarly.com/plans. As you can see in the image below, Grammarly has only 2 plans for paid users, the Personal plan and the Business plan.
Not talking about management features, in terms of English grammar and spelling check features, these two packages have no difference.
The Grammarly Business package is intended for companies and organizations with multiple users.
So where does the Grammarly Lifetime account information come from?
Coming from the Business package. Agencies, companies and schools will register this package for internal use. When these agencies, schools and companies continue to use it, the Grammarly Premium package will still be maintained, however, for some reason, an agency/company/school stops the contract, goes bankrupt or change your subscription, that the Grammarly premium account will also disappear. (This is similar to when you use Google Drive, and OneDrive .. so cheap).
Therefore, the official Grammarly Premium lifetime account does not exist because the service provider Grammarly.com does not support it.

How to use the Grammarly app on your computer
Online Grammarly Editor & Desktop App
When learning a new language, writing is often one of the most difficult skills for learners. Because it is not always possible to control all spelling or grammatical errors when writing in another language. Grammarly was born to serve that need. With its handy English grammar and spelling checker, Grammarly makes it possible to correct mistakes when writing in English in no time.
In this article, I will introduce you to this application and its useful features for users.
Grammarly supports users on many platforms, but within the framework of this article, I will show you how to use Grammarly on a web browser.
You can access the Grammarly website by searching for “Grammarly” on Google, or typing Grammarly.com directly into the address bar.
Introduction and quick guide to using Grammarly
After logging in, the Grammarly interface will display as follows (applies to websites and desktop applications)
This is where you manage your account settings and My documents. You can:
– Upgrade your account and manage settings for My premium account.
– Change the email address associated with the account, change the password.
– Delete old documents and upload new ones to check for spelling and grammar errors.
There are also many other useful feature options!
1. Check out the new text
You can start working on Grammarly by clicking New on the homepage. If you already have the text you want to check on your computer, select Update.
After clicking “New”, you will see Grammarly display a new desktop. You can type the text you want to check directly where the mouse pointer is blinking, or click the Upload button to upload the text from your computer. You can also see a menu with an icon of three dashes in the upper left corner of the screen.
When you select that menu, you’ll see items like “New document” for creating new documents, “Upload file” for uploading files (with formats accepted in Grammarly), “Download” for uploading text documents, “Print” for printing, and items for text editing.
2. Text Editing
When you enter a new document or upload an existing document, Grammarly automatically checks everything for you, showing mistakes to make it easy to spot and correct. When the text is being checked, the Overall score section displays a circle indicating that the check is in progress.
I will give you an example of an essay. After checking the whole thing, Grammarly will display the following results:
Grammarly will give you a total score, a specific assessment for each criterion and error that Grammarly finds in your writing. For errors that need to be corrected due to grammar or spelling mistakes, Grammarly will underline them in red. When you click on the error, Grammarly will explain why it’s a mistake and suggest how to correct it.
The words, phrases, and sentences underlined in blue are the parts that are not wrong, but Grammarly thinks they are worded poorly or could be phrased in a better way. If you don’t like Grammarly’s suggestions for fixing, you can select the trash can icon in the fix section to delete it.
Grammarly often details the grading criteria for a text. If you want to know more about a criterion, just click on it. And if you want to better understand why Grammarly recommends such a text modification, select the “Learn more” section in the error correction section.
For example, in the example text, Grammarly thinks the text is a bit unclear, so I looked where it was not clear and after selecting that item, I got the following results:
If you feel the suggestion is not useful, you can select the trash can button to delete it as instructed above or click the ellipsis, if you see the words “Turn off suggestions like this”, select it.
Once selected, the same suggestions will disappear. To re-enable them, just select the icon next to All alerts and select “Turn back on”. However, this feature only works with Grammarly Premium, Grammarly Business accounts, and users with education (.edu) accounts.
3. Text Format
When you create a new document or copy text into Grammarly, you can format My text by bolding, italicizing, or underlining the text; create lists; create H1 and H2 headings; link… using the toolbar at the bottom of the screen. You can also remove all formatting in a specific document by highlighting and selecting Clear Formatting also located on the toolbar.
There’s a small caveat to this: If you upload My text to Grammarly, the site’s formatting options will be disabled to preserve the original text’s existing formatting.
You’ll see My text show up as raw text in Grammarly, but after you’ve finished checking and editing, you can download it back to your computer and the original formatting will be preserved.
4. Define the purpose and style of the text
If you are practicing writing then you can set a specific goal for My writing. Grammarly can help you do just that! Just select the Goals item in the right menu, then select the parameters and conditions you want to achieve. Very simple, right? This feature is available for both free and premium accounts, but free accounts are restricted to the “Domain” section.
5. Some other settings
You can further tweak some of my experiences with Grammarly such as turning off auto-jumping to the next correction, excluding text in brackets, increasing the font size in the text… To do that, you select the three dashes icon in the upper left corner of the screen, select the Editor settings item and toggle the options as you like.
Note that excluding text in brackets is only available on Grammarly online and the Grammarly desktop app.
6. Download checked text finished
Once you’re done checking and editing, you can copy the text or download it. If you type the text yourself or copy it from somewhere else, Grammarly will set the default format for the downloaded text to be docx.
If you download existing text from your computer, Grammarly will output it for you in the same format as it was originally.
Alternatively, you can view your text evaluation parameters by selecting the Overall score. This section will provide a lot of useful information about the text such as word count, word length, sentence length, vocabulary, and grammar usage along with a general ground assessment. You can download a PDF containing those metrics to compare and track your progress.
7. Check for plagiarism
This is a feature exclusive to Grammarly premium users. If you are writing a report, thesis, or graduate thesis, checking for plagiarism is extremely important.
You just need to select Plagiarism in the bottom right corner. The software will scan your document and compare it with hundreds of thousands of other documents to check the duplicate level of the text you are checking.
8. Additional Support Services
This is a unique feature that allows you to submit My articles to a team of experts for review and response in your requested time. To send a text, just select Get Expert Writing Help above the Plagiarism section and then choose a time and price that suits your conditions and situation.
If you choose “Correctness only”, our team of experts will only correct spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors for you.
If you choose “Correctness and Clarity”, the experts not only correct spelling, grammar, and punctuation errors, but also make your text easier to read, shorter and clearer. Of course, this option will cost a lot more and the request time will be longer than the “Correctness only” option.
FAQ: How to use Grammarly to check spelling and grammar

2. How to stop Grammarly from checking the text in brackets?
Sometimes in the process of writing, you use some quotes and in those quotes, there are slang words or acronyms that Grammarly misunderstands as a mistake in terms of grammar, spelling, or content.
You can adjust the text settings to prevent Grammarly from checking text inside quotation marks. However, this setting is currently only available in the computer version of Grammarly Editor.
To have Grammarly not suggest corrections for text inside brackets, simply select the three dashes icon in the upper-left corner of the workspace, then select Editor settings. In the window that opens, just turn on the don’t check the text inside quotes option.
When you enable this setting, Grammarly will not mark text in brackets as misspelling or grammatical. However, those parts of the text will still be checked for plagiarism.

- Chicago Manual of Style (Turabian) – Chicago citation style (rough translation).
Simply click on the link provided in the suggestions tab and Grammarly will automatically redirect you to a website that provides the necessary templates to source your text.
Some of you reflect that the plagiarism check feature on Grammarly is not really accurate and meets the strict requirements of users. However, I have not tested it thoroughly, so I will not draw conclusions here.
6. What is a “performance” score and how is it calculated?
The performance score will show how accurate your text compares to other texts written by Grammarly users.
To calculate the performance score, Grammarly will calculate the accuracy of the text based on the total number of words and the number of errors found.
Grammarly will then compare that accuracy with the accuracy of all other texts that have the same goal as you. For example, in the image below, you scored 84, which means your writing is more accurate than the writing of 84% of other people with the same goal as me.
For more clarity on the performance score evaluation criteria, simply select the Overall score. In the window that opens, Grammarly has very clearly divided the evaluation criteria according to each item along with the data that the software obtains from your article.
7. Choose the context for the text to be checked?
Note: This feature is only available to Grammarly Premium users.
You can choose the most appropriate text context for your article so that Grammarly can give the most accurate and relevant suggestions. Grammarly Premium includes six types of text contexts as follows:
- General (Overview)
- Academic (Academic)
- Business (Business)
- Creative (Creative)
- Casual (Casual)
To select a context, click Goals. The default context in Grammarly is General.
All text context styles apply most of Grammarly’s spelling, grammar, and punctuation correction procedures above. Below is a list of text styles in order from most formal to most popular.
Academic is the most stereotypical type of writing when it comes to writing. Grammarly will often prioritize correcting errors such as passive sentences, shortening sentences, inappropriate personal pronouns.
This style of writing also focuses on formal errors in the text, but it allows some common phrases and personal pronouns and unclear antecedents (such as This is, that is… ).
This is the default style and the error catch is medium.
This category is similar to the General category, which makes your email more attractive to readers. In addition to catching grammar, spelling, and punctuation errors, this style of writing also points out abuses of language that can upset the reader.
This is a context designed for common text styles and ignores most errors in other contexts. When you choose this context, Grammarly will not point out errors in passive sentences, informal pronouns, or run-on sentences (sentences with two or more independent clauses but without proper punctuation or conjunctions). well suited). This context is suitable for normal communications.
This is the most flexible context. Although it still catches errors in grammar, spelling, and punctuation, it still ignores those who deliberately want to change the grammatical structure to achieve certain creative effects. It also does not highlight missing elements in a sentence (subject or verb), too long sentences, colloquial language, passive voice, incomplete comparisons, etc.
8. Add and remove words from Personal Dictionary?
If you want Grammarly not to catch a particular spelling mistake, you can add words to your personal dictionary by clicking the Add to dictionary button. When you select this button, the word will be added to your personal dictionary and Grammarly will not consider it a mistake in future documents.
You can access your personal dictionary at any time to add or remove words. You can also add any word that you don’t want Grammarly to treat as a mistake. To access this feature, go to Account and select Customize. To add a word to the dictionary, simply type the word and click Add.
To remove a word from the dictionary, simply hover over the word and click on the trash can icon that appears to the right of it.
9. Download the report of the document’s parameters as a PDF?
You can view the statistics of your text by clicking Overall score. In this section, you will find a lot of useful information about the text including the total number of words and the number of characters the text has. If you want to download a report as a PDF, simply select Download PDF Report in the window that opens.
10. Text Format?
