Today, I’m going to be explaining the difference between at, on and in when relating to time. These are called prepositions of time. They are used to discuss or converse a specific time period such as a date on the calendar, one of the days of the week, or the actual time a certain thing takes place.
How often do you come across the phrase “double confirm”? After we had our dinner last night, I asked my husband whether he had any ideas of what I could write about for this week’s post.
He answered, “Write about the use of “double confirm” and why it’s wrong.”
“Do a lot of people actually say “double confirm”? I don’t remember many people using it back in my former job,” I replied.
“Ever since my colleague mentioned it, I’ve been seeing it everywhere,” he said.
Thanks for the suggestion, hubs.
Today, our post is about the correct and incorrect use of “I’m”. In last week’s post, I wrote about the difference between “I” and “me”. So this week, we’ll discuss how “I’m” is often incorrectly used.
The past week has been jam-packed! We had Election Day on Wednesday, the announcement of a new Prime Minister and a new government the following day, two days of holiday, Mother’s Day on Sunday, yesterday was Teacher’s Day and today is the first day of Ramadan! Phew! Did I miss anything out?
Do you know the difference between “all together” and “altogether”?
In speaking, it’s not a problem because they sound the same. But when it comes to writing, you might wonder, “What’s the difference?”
I recently wondered the same thing. Here’s a paragraph that I wrote in an email for our Communicate with Confidence online course students. Can you identify which paragraph is the right one?
Have you heard of fanboys? I did a quick Google search and the first definition that comes up is this:
A male fan, especially one who is obsessive about comics, music, film, or science fiction.
We have another post for you this week! It’s all about the active and passive voice and when to use it.
First of all, the active voice is common in many of the world’s languages, including English and Bahasa Malaysia. You are using the active voice when you describe a subject performing an action (verb). It’s straightforward and easy to understand.
