  1. Hi Christian!!!
    I found very interesting this class!!!
    Punctuation is so important because it's sometimes difficult to understand a text or maybe oneself can misunderstand a message!!!
    It happened to me in the past!!!
    In my opinion, the commas are very important because you can be confused about what the other person wants to say!!!
    I knew all the signs of punctuation you explain, except the name of last three.
    Something that I found rare in English is after the comma follows the word 'and' 'cause in Spanish is never the word 'and after a comma.'
    The three points doesn't mean that I am angry!!!
    When I write 3 dots (…) it means that I go to continue the sentence or I don't want to say all and to let something of failure/suspense. Although, I was thinking about what you said Christian and maybe sometimes when somebody tells me something that I don't like it, I write a sentence but I didn't finish it and use (…) to show my anger.
    You becomes the classes very funny in the way to explain!!!
    Kisses.

  2. if you love what you do, don’t be afraid to do it. if you love yourself, don’t be afraid to celebrate yourself constantly. if you’re proud of yourself, don’t be hesitant to express it. don’t live in fear, you do you. it’s how you grow

  4. Besides that, in Portuguese we also have graphic accentuation (á â ã à). That makes Brazilians crazy! Lucky you all native English writers!
