    a title of an academic paper

    I am writing an academic paper entitled "The Use and Training of Vocabulary Learning: a Case Study of two Pupils Learning Words in Unit 7 from PEP Book 4". Is it grammatically right? Thank you.

    It would appear to be "grammatically right", but the title itself is somewhat confusing. First, as presented, and to break it down into understandable segments, "use of ......... learning" is a rather simplistic term. What else would a person do with learning other than use it in some way? Second, "training of.......learning" is not a good combination. Learning isn't trained. People/animals are trained. Next, is "two Pupils" really significant? That is, would it make a difference in your study if it were only one pupil or ten pupils? And finally, the title is too long. How about, for example, "Vocabulary Learning, A Case Study Using PEP Book 4"

    With "The Use Of ...", did you perhaps mean "The Usefulness of .."?

    Does your case study simply follow how those two children learn the relevant vocabulary or how they are/were taught to learn vocabulary?

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
