Hi, teacher Gill.Thank you for teaching us English. I have a question about punctuation mark, and hoping you could answer and correct me. I always put a commma before IF. For example, in your video, the 3rd sentence: You could get good marks in the exam, if you study every day. This is what my normal practice to put a comma before “if”. But I read in a lot of places without a comma

lan1301

    hi Ian – thanks for your question. It’s not essential to put a comma before ‘if’ – it depends on the structure of the sentence, and often it’s quite an instinctive thing. In a short sentence it’s not so important, for example “He asked me if I was going to the party.” I hope this is helpful :-)

    Gill

      Ha, I hope I have more instinct on learning English grammar. Anyway, thank you for your replied.
      Have a nice day.

      lan1301

Continue: before ‘if’, so I start wonder is it my normal practices are actually wrong? Please enlighten me.

lan1301

    Hi Ian,

    Actually, there is a simple rule:

    When the IF clause is the first in the sentence, it is followed by a comma. If the IF clause is the second clause, then normally there is no comma (unless the clause is just an extension/additional information to the sentence). The same applies to the usage of WHEN. A few examples:

    If I don’t know the person, I am less friendlier towards them.
    She could study in France if she spoke the language.
    Wake me up when you arrive.
    When you arrive, give me a call.

    All the best,
    David

      Thank you for the explanation, David.
      Have a nice day to you.

        I think you are making a mistake. My sentence is correct. Check it again please.

        Soei

          Agree, your sentence is correct
          Kind regards

Muhammadali2018

Miss! I got 70 in the test. I have figured out all of my errors except question number 8. Please explain me how come there is ‘possibly’? And how come there is not possible’

NURUZZAMAN 1420

    hi Nuruzzaman – the correct answer is “could you possibly …” – ‘possible’ is the adjective, ‘possibly’ is the adverb. The adjective goes with a noun, the adverb goes with a verb. So “Could you possibly SPEAK more slowly” (speak = verb), or “It’s not possible for me to speak more slowly” (possible = adjective referring to ‘it’). I hope this helps :-)

    Gill

      you’re great my dear teacher !!!!!

Thank you, Gill. I got 9 out of 10. I missed question 7. I selected “was able to” instead of “used to be able to.” It sounds correct to me. Could you please explain to me why it is not a correct answer?

I got 9 of 10 and got more information about adverb and adjective through Mam Gil’s answer to the one who asked her. Thank you Madam.
