Your vs You're | Ask Linda! | English Grammar


'Your' and 'You're' often get confused in the English language. Let?s break it down: 'Your' is a possessive adjective and indicates ownership. 'You're' simply is the contracted form of ?you are?. Let?s take a look at this example sentence: Your grades are great this semester. (Your, here indicating ownership) You're the best student in the entire school! (you're here meaning you are) Next time you?re not quite sure, think about if you want to express ownership or of you want to say 'you are'. That?s it for today! See you next time!

Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching. This convenient, highly structured design means that you can quickly get to grips with each section before moving onto the next.

The unit expresses the importance of teaching pronunciation and phonology. It is also vital for teachers and learners to grasp the concepts of using stress, rhythm, and intonation in sentences, and knowing to use the right patterns based on the messages the speakers want to convey because the meaning differs substantially with different patterns in the same sentence.After completing this unit I can now identify past tenses. Past simple by adding 'ed, and using irregular form. Past continuous by using was / were and using present particle verb + ing. Past perfect by using had or had not. And past perfect continuous by talking about longer actions or situations in the past that had been going on continuously up to the past moment.
