Questions

Subject: Writing

Question:

Should I use an oxford comma or not?

Inactive
Whitney O.
Answer:

Largely, this comes down to preference. Personally, I like the oxford comma as I think it's more clear. For example, as seen in a meme, if you write "We invited the rhinoceri, Washington, and Lincoln," the message is clear. However, you write "We invited the rhinoceri, Washington and Lincoln," it could be interpreted that Washington and Lincoln are rhinoceri (rhinoceroses). It also depends on what writing style guide you're using, which applies if you're writing anything scholarly or journalistic. If you're writing, say, fiction, however, it's your choice!

Answer:

There are several databases that would contain articles on this topic. JSTOR, PsycINFO, and Web of Science are some good places to start through your university library. To narrow down your search, make sure to use the advanced search settings. You can narrow down your search by subject, type of publication, peer-reviewed only articles, date of publication, or just about any way you need!

Answer:

A good ESL teacher has a solid knowledge and command of the English language and makes learning fun for the students by incorporating games into lessons. They should also maintain a positive classroom (or virtual classroom) environment and use a student-centered approach.
