Writing

Learn

Capital letters are always used at the start of a sentence. Every letter in the alphabet can be simple (lower case) or capital (upper case).

These are simple letters (also called ‘lower case’):

a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z

These are capital letters (also called ‘upper case’):

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

At the end of a sentence we put punctuation. Depending on the type of sentence, this could be a full stop, a question mark or an exclamation mark.

Now watch this video.
