When to capitalize names in English. Is that sentence proper? Why did you write ‘to capitalize’ after ‘when’?

Monday, January 5th 2015

Thanks Madam, Its helps for me.

Thursday, February 19th 2015

It’s helpful for me,too.Thanks a lot!

Monday, February 23rd 2015

greetings. so we do capitalize the names of mountains, streets, but not the words: streets or mountains themselves, right? and in the Example with ” aunt” . in the first exm. we didn’t capitalize the word- aunt- while we did that with the second second? why?it seems a little tricky, isn’t it? in my opinion, I wouldn’t capitalize it in the first case, neither in the second one, because the main name here is Sally, and aunt already refers to her:))))

Saturday, March 14th 2015

Dear Rebecca,
Since last year, I have “capitalised” or accumulated a number of your lessons. I improve myself. Thank you.
Best regards.

Wednesday, May 20th 2015

your speaking is very well I am understanding easily. thank you

Tuesday, August 15th 2017

Sorry, but I can’t see the difference between “my aunt Sally’s house” and “tell Aunt Sally that…” For me it’s like I would say “the Atlantic ocean’s waves are very high”.
