English for all- Series 4

Here is yet another series at your finger tips:

  1. Contractions: Avoid contractions in formal letters like “I’m, You’re, Isn’t, Aren’t” however, contractions are fine when quoting someone e.g “I’m not sure I’m in favor of what you’re proposing”
  2. Contrast: Use contrast with not contrast to
  3. Cooperate/Coordinate/CoordinatorThe hyphens are left out
  4. Dates/Time: The correct format is “Friday 29th July 2011”
  5. Different: Use different from and not different than or different to
  6. Disinterested: Impartial unbiased or lack of interest, he or she is uninterested.

So, many more to follow.
