bilkisu ibrahim

Thank you very much for the lesson. As always, your’s explanations of difficult topics of english grammar are both brilliant and simple. I was quite surprised though that you should use a semi-colon before a transitional expression and not just a regular comma. This is something I was unaware of all this time until now.

8/10 thanks for this encouraging lesson

Iwegbu

I enjoyed the demonstration of the subtle use of semicolon. I am able to use it in French but I have never learned formal use. Thank you Rebecca.
A question please; should I capitalize the “f” of “french” as above?

beernaard

    Yes, in English, names of languages and nationalities must be capitalized. Glad you found the lesson useful! Once you start using the semi-colon in your writing, you will take your English to a higher level. All the best to you, beernaard.

    Rebecca

      Thank you Rebecca.

Jakub Alvarez

Thanks to each of you for watching and sharing your comments! Try to use the semi-colon today, in an email, academic assignment, or business document. It will make a big difference!

Rebecca

    This lecture is what I exactly need. ❤️❤️❤️
    May i just ask one favor. Would you please give us the complete list of the transition where I can use semi-colon.

    You only stated however and therefore etc… How about ‘ although, even though, despite, in spite of, moreover and furthermore’ ?

I think this lesson was very important, because there are different rules among languages. May you add more lessons about other punctuation marks? Thank you very much.

MikeTower

really didn’t understand the last part of the lesson which is taking about the way to know when we can use the semi-colon and when we can’t , really didn’t understand the last part of the lesson which is taking about the way to know when we can use the semi-colon and when we can’t , may you give me an example ??

mangoooo9999

greetings
The lecture is so interesting,impressive and useful, but I have an query.

as you said, it shouldn’t use while using conjunctive adverbe right ?
here is an example,I have seen it in a book (pdf) from British Colombia; under title: constructing sentences,page number 16 as a example of complex sentences.
( today,I study grammar; therefore,tomorrow,I will be a better writer)
can you please give your guidelines on the above mentioned sentence ?

Harish kumar bhardwaj

Javeria Umar

hi teacher , i’m a new student , but i don’t speak english very good , i want to improve my language with you if you can ☺

mbeirika

Hi Rebecca, Thank you very much for you lessen; indeed, it is very useful!

Could you please verify to me the use of “:” and “;” are correct in the below paragraph;also, please kindly explain why it’s correct or wrong.

Finally, I would argue that a humane society should not abandon those in need. Going to the aid of individuals who are seriously hurt even when they are responsible for their plight -is morally right. Enlightened cultures do this already: smokers who develop lung cancer are treated; careless drivers injured in motor vehicle accidents are given medical support; and those living in poverty receive financial aid from the state.
