Is the oxford comma necessary?
Although a controversial topic in writing, I do believe the oxford comma is necessary. It allows for your reader to fully understand the list you are making by knowing its clear beginning and ending.
Subject: English as a Second Language
What is the best way to learn a second language?
There are many different ways to learn a second language however, the best and quickest way is full immersion. If you are only practicing once a week, it will take a long time before you are able to fully master the language. My best advice would be to work with a tutor or native speaker when you can while trying to immerse yourself on your own time as well. Some ideas for this would be listening to podcasts, music, and watching tv in the language you are trying to learn.
Is it Color Pencil or Colored Pencil?
While both terms are grammatically correct, the most common use would be colored pencil.
