Learning how to use full stops (periods) will not only help you to punctuate written English properly but in how to pause and pace yourself properly in spoken English.
Take a look:
My name is Jennifer . I am from the USA . My hometown is Rochester , New York.
My name is Jennifer. I am from the USA. My hometown is Rochester, New York.
For those who are unfamiliar the term period is the American English word for “full stop.”
Note: The pronoun I is always capitalized wherever it falls in a sentence. For example:
I have to go to the store.
He said that I have to go to the store.
I have also shown a similar problem with the comma above. I will discuss comma usage in an upcoming blog.
