Question:

What is one of the biggest differences between Spanish and English?

Answer:

One huge difference between Spanish and English are gendered words. Gendered words are a huge part of the Spanish language that don't exist in the same way in English. In Spanish, there are masucline and feminine words and it's important to make sure that the gender of the article, noun, and adjective all match.

Subject: English as a Second Language

Question:

How can I know when to use "a" vs. "an" before a noun?

Inactive

Answer:

This rule is pretty straightforward: "a" is used before any singular noun that begins with a consonant or voiced H (like hotel) and "an" is used before any singular noun that begins with a vowel (a,e,i,o,u) or unvoiced H (like hour).

Question:

What is the difference between your and you're?

Answer:

"Your" is posessive and is used to show to whom an object belongs e.g. "this is your book". "You're" is a contraction of the two words "you are" e.g. "you're a great student". Here's a quick way to double check if you've written the correct word: if you replace the word with the two words "you are", does the sentence still make sense? For example, is this sentence correct? "Your doing a great job studying English!" Hmmm... Can we replace "your" with "you are"? Let's see... "you are doing a great job studying English!" Yes! We can! So we must use contraction "you're" to correct the sentence - "You're doing a great job studying English!"
