Danger! Proceed with caution!

The other day I was looking at links to my site (yes, this one!) and I found a site in Korea which liked it, but it also said:

“However, although McMahon claims to have been a teacher and materials writer since 1987, the user would need to exercise caution in that this and any other statements are neither verified nor moderated in any way. This site represents the opinions of one person and the links provided would each need to be evaluated on an individual basis.”

So, just be careful you guys!

On another note I have been looking at some writing by some very good German students. The one area that these students could improve is their puncutation because they tend to put in too much – usually too many commas!

Look at that previous sentence:
The one area that these students could improve is their puncutation because they tend to put in too much.
No commas needed!

This page from Towson University in the USA does a really good of breaking a sentence down into its separate parts and showing the difference between simple and complex sentences and how they should be punctuated. The link is here but, remember, be careful!
