Where it might come in handy for teachers is the plagiarism search function. It will check any text with over 8 billion webpages to ensure the writing is unique. Luckily this doesn’t take very long to search!

If you want to use all the features Grammarly has to offer, you’ll need a subscription plan. It’s available as either a monthly plan ($29.95) or as a yearly payment ($139.95). It’s cheaper to buy the annual plan but the monthly option is handy to try out the service. However, as you can see below, to check critical grammar and spelling is free!
