      Serby, could you explain it? I mean, the opposite of "in" is "out", but that can't be the joke...

                A bit of punctuation would make it easier to understand. It's not funny though.

                              This one made me get it... But yeah, rather eureka effect than actually funny.

                                it's kinda funny if you get it withing 20-30s, if i was trying to get it for 30 minutes, ofc it wouldn't have been funny

                                  Depends right?

                                  I didn't find it funny either.

                                  The "new" in the thread title is... A tad annoying. I don't really get, why the Admin team felt the need, to remove the previous thread completly. But what ever.

                                      You mean the "I don't get it, why"-part, right ? Truth to be told, you don't really deal with punctuation that much in English classes at school. I even learned new (at least to me) aspects about it in college, although it could be considered a rather elementary linguistic topic.

                                        I avoid teaching punctuation. It's hard. I hate it when students ask me about commas

                                            It is hard. It already is when it comes to the first language, but it's even tougher when it comes to a foreign language that follows its own rules. But then again, the grammar you teach in middle school is supposed to prepare you for high school when you deal with more difficult topics such as culture and literature and you have to speak the language well enough by then for it not to be an obstacle anymore. I mean, let's say you're supposed to write an essay on the American Dream. How to do it if you don't know about punctuation?

                                              I'm already teaching lol, I have far from the best qualifications but idc practice makes perfect, I'm young and all that

                                              and while I'm teaching I'm also actually learning the language because I know everything instinctively but no fcking clue about why something is something in theory. google is my bff. MA Degree in English here I come :'))))

                                                i don't remember we ever learnt a single thing about punctuation in english. I n german, however, they put commas everywhere, but the rules are clear at least.

                                                  The teacher training really seems to be pretty loose in Croatia then. In Germany, becoming a teacher is really a big thing with all of its requirements, duties and obligations.

                                                  Well, what's there: listing, relative clauses, a subordinate clause seperated by a main clause or two main clasuses seperated from each other. That's pretty much it already, isn't it?

                                                    Is this for English or what? tbh, I'm learning German now, my 3rd foreign language so far and I can tell you that most of the time I don't learn rules per se, it's about getting the feeling for it. What you said now makes close to zero sense to me cuz I don't know what's what.
