    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.

    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.

    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?

    @mrlemonade: You wrote before that you consider the job of a teacher as possible option for you. Being scared of students' questions is not the best qualification for that job though .

    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 :'))))

    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.
