Hi, fellas! How are you today? I hope you’re all well.
Tonight, I’ll open a Q&A session. Mention us with any questions related to learning English. #EngQAs
I’ll pick 3 questions for us to discuss (or more, should the time allow). Tweet us with the hashtag #EngQAs.
Let’s start with this question. Which is correct: an unique or a unique? #EngQAs
@englishtips4u which one is correct : an unique or a unique ? #EngQAs
The word ‘unique’, same as ‘uniform’ or ‘unicorn’, begins with a palatal approximant /j/, which is a consonantal sound, even though it starts with a vowel. Thus, the correct article is ‘a’. #EngQAs
It depends on the sound the word makes. Thanks for your question! :)
@englishtips4u got it! thankyou for the answers
This is our second question. Any tips, fellas?
student life @enthotimus
@EnglishTips4U #EngQAs wondering how to check our writing when no one could be our proofreader, checking the style i mean, not about grammar
Next, it’s recommended to eliminate some unnecessary words. For example, see if you’ve written too many the’s or of’s. @enthotimus #EngQAs.
The last but not least, read the text aloud. This is especially helpful for spotting run-on sentences. You’ll also hear other problems that you might not see when reading silently. That’s what I can share, @enthotimus!! Hope it helps. #EngQAs
All right, fellas, if there’s no more question, I’ll wrap up today’s #EngQAs. Thank you very much for joining.
@EnglishTips4U thanks, as always your tweets are enlightening, keep sharing guys, cheers
Have a good night and a good rest, fellas! See you!
