RnR Grammar

The RnR Grammar is in the title today, notice how it is April Fools Day (with the apostrophe).

This is something that MANY MANY people make mistakes with…. especially ENGLISH people! ?

It is the day of all the fools (plural), and as it is ‘their’ day, they ‘possess’ the day, so we put the apostrophe AFTER the ‘s’.

If it were the day of only one fool, we would write April Fool’s Day.

 

When you have listened to the podcast and read the above, then you’re ready for the quiz below!

Good luck!

    Haha we play April fools’ day pranks all day like Americans do!! Do we outdo you? ?
    I used to like this super star when I was in school. He killed himself on an April fools’ day? So April fools’ day brings back old memories of the time when I was so very young and watched his movies and listened to his songs.
    Thanks! Your podcast make my boring journey to home enjoyable.

    I do accept as true with all of the concepts you have offered in your post. They’re really convincing and will definitely work. Still, the posts are very brief for beginners. May you please extend them a little from next time? Thanks for the post. ebabefaaakfc

      Hi John, unfortunately the site is for intermediate speakers or above. Hopefully in the future I will make some material for beginners. Anyway, your writing in English is very good and is definitely higher than beginner level – so try again to listen and hopefully you’ll understand more! 🙂
