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.Serby wrote:I really lover your "German" commas, so cute.
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?biscuits wrote:I avoid teaching punctuation. It's hard.

Being scared of students' questions is not the best qualification for that job though .
