Task for 2 Aug 2018

Send your 2nd email to your pen pal.

1. Login to AsknLearn.

2. Go to Tools -> Google Apps -> Gmail for Education.

3. Under Drafts, click on the email you typed on Tuesday.

4. Read through your email, checking for the following kinds of errors:

  • Spelling - Check a dictionary if you have one.
  • Tenses - Use the past tense if writing about something in the past.
  • Punctuation - For example: If you asked a question, end with a question mark. 'I' is always a capital letter. Names of places, like 'Xingnan Primary School' have the first letter capitalised.
  • Format: Did you leave a line when starting a new paragraph? Does your letter have a sign-off (eg. Yours sincerely)?
