The Importance of correct Grammar:
Recently there has been a ‘mini’ debate in a daily tabloid regarding Grammar; the lack of and misuse by all manner of people. Below is just one example of………..

Version 1

‘Dear John,
I want a man who knows what love is all about. You are generous, kind and thoughtful. People who are not like you admit to being useless and inferior. You have ruined me for other men. I yearn for you. I have no feelings whatsoever when we’re apart. I can be forever happy. Will you let me be yours? Anne.’


Version 2

‘Dear John,
I want a man who knows what love is. All about you are generous, kind and thoughtful people who are not like you. Admit to being useless and inferior. You have ruined me. For other men, I yearn. For you, I have no feelings whatsoever. When we’re apart, I can be forever happy. Will you let me be? Yours, Anne.’
