Is English your thing? Time to prove it!
With the introduction of spell check and shortcut words like “lol”, “thru”, “u” and other terms used to speed up communication in this texting culture of ours, its’ safe to say that English basics have gone out the window in a lot of cases. People all over the world are forgetting that a noun is a person, place or thing, and what kind of article needs to go with it. Verbs confuse a lot of people today, not just because they’re doing words but because they require different tenses and agreements based on the sentence. People also confuse antonyms and synonyms with homophones, don’t understand metaphors and similes, don’t know when to use pronouns and what pronouns to use, have trouble spelling certain notoriously tricky words, don’t know the difference between adjectives and adverbs, and in short, probably make their high school English teachers very disappointed! The truth is that good English skills are hugely important for adult life because they help to represent you as a person and show the world how much you understand about the language you’re speaking, as well as proving that you’re articulate. Though texting has come in style over writing letters, communication will never go out of style as long as there are humans who need to talk to each other, and so English skills will always be incredibly important.
