Top 5 English Grammar Tips

1. Memorize 3 Fundamental Capitalization Rules

Proper capitalization helps your writing look professional, tidy and correct.

-The first word in a sentence. You should always capitalize the first word in a sentence regardless of what type of word it is.
-Proper nouns (names). These include the names of people, locations, places, days and months, companies, etc. For example: Matthew, Helen, France, Tokyo, Mississippi, Microsoft, Saturday, January…
-Honorifics and titles, as well as their abbreviations. Mr., Mrs., Ms., Miss, Doctor (Dr.), President, Lord, etc.

2. I and Me Aren’t Interchangeable

I and me are’t interchangeable. They are used in different grammatical constructs.

I is a pronoun that serves as a subject of a sentence.

Matt and I went for a walk.

Me is a pronoun that serves as an object of a sentence.

Matt took me for a walk.

3. Be Careful When Using Your and You’re

This is probably the most common mistake on the internet today! Your and you’re sound absolutely the same, but they have very different meanings and uses.

Your is a possessive determiner that attributes something to you:

Your dinner is getting cold.

You’re is a contraction of you are:

You’re nice to me. (You are nice to me.)

These are the most grammatical errors. They’re easy to avoid. Don’t repeat them!
