Week 2 has just started … don’t forget!

Dear students,

week twoI want to announce that week 2 has just started. Before doing anything, please, read this post carefully.

When you leave a comment, please check it many times. Check the spelling, and capital letters at the beginning of the sentences. The pronoun “I” should be capital all the time. When you mention your name or your friends’ names, you should write the first letter in capital. Also, don’t forget to put full stop at the end of the sentences. Look at the mistakes in grammar, too. These mistakes sometimes lead to misunderstanding. I hope you enjoy commenting putting the tips mentioned above into mind.

All the best!
