English for Wednesday

This Monday we discussed the course and you talked about your previous learning of English. You described experiences such as reading texts, talking, reading novels, writing and some of you had done some kind of research into the culture and society of English-speaking countries.

For this course you expressed the desire to things like the following:

    Write short stories
    Watch documentaries
    Watch news
    Read texts or books
    Report on news you had found in English-speaking news media

I have noticed from your posts that you seem to be uncertain on how to use apostrophes in English.

I am going to try to explain how they are used today. You find the information here.


Take the quizzes at the bottom of the page.  Make a note of your errors and show me which mistakes you make.  Try to come up with a simple mnemonic for yourself by using examples so that you can try to remember the rules.

Film to repeat it all
