Galeltic, many if not most of us couldn't communicate well in a foreign language. One good way to improve your written communication is to use a word processor's spell checker and grammar checker. Don't stop posting!

Regards,

The real issue here is not speach skills it's personal attacks.

We all have opinions, we all wish to share them, that's the function of the forum.

It's when people attack the poster and not the opinion that the thread degrades....

Example: I hold opinions that as of today remain wholly unchallenged yet I could quote you well over 500 pages of purely low brow, knuckle dragging, Neanderthalic level personal attacks....

Waste of time? boorish, stupid,,,,yup.

Be nice to people, but please do assault the opinions that's where the value resides.

If you cannot kite surf you are not ready to launch from the beach.
happy holidays

Wow can't believe what I'm reading galtic where are you. Please don't let people get to your hart unless its good stuff I sit here very sad at the way people are.

I know you don't need hand outs but to show you that most people are good I will make you a X-mass gift.

we had a bro at our beach that was def also and had problems communicating to people and we all thought he had the life we where jealous of him, he kited every day there was wind. Long story short he kill himself please, please don’t ever think like that no mater how hard life is it will get better and I known there are many people out there that love you very much.

WE are good people here, stay, write I don’t care if you are garbled or not you try and that is all that matters.
The way you handle the shit posters is way to good. I wish I had your demeanor.

So tell me what kind of board you want. Santa is coming to town

Pm me bro.

I hope you don’t take offence to this, it’s just that it brings tears to my eyes just thinking of our kite bro that’s like you. but not here any more. WE CARE! It hurts to read this shit.

STF how the fuck do you get off treating people like this!

Tap, tap tap,

STF,,,please read



There are two main uses for apostrophes:

1) Shortening tiny words

Use apostrophes to indicate a missing vowel in words like is, not, are, am, us

So ...

is gets shortened to ’s

are gets shortened to ’re.

am gets shortened to ’m

us get shortened to ’s

not gets shortened to n’t

(Note: remember how not is shortened.)


Thus (and you must close the gap between the shortened word and the word before it) ...

It’s when you mean It is - never Its’ or Its
(although Its is used to mean something different - about which more later).

They’re when you mean They are - never Theyr’e or Theyre or, worse, Their or There (because Their and There both have completely different meanings).

We’re when you mean We are - never Wer’e or, worse, Were
(because Were has a completely different meaning).

Don’t when you mean Do not - never Do’nt, Dont’ or Dont

Can’t when you mean Cannot - never Ca’nt or, worse, Cant
(because Cant has a completely different meaning.)

(Note: cannot is spelled cannot and not can not.

Weren’t when you mean Were not - never Were’nt, Werent’ or Werent

Couldn’t when you mean Could not - never Could’nt or Couldnt

Who’s when you mean Who is - never Whos’ or Whos or, worse, Whose
(because Whose has a completely different meaning).

Shouldn’t when you mean Should not - never Should’nt or Shouldnt

Hadn’t when you mean Had not - never Had’nt or Hadnt

Isn’t when you mean Is not - never Is’nt or Isnt

Aren’t when you mean Are not - never Are’nt or Arent

That’s when you mean That is - never Thats’ or Thats

I’m when you mean I am - never Im’ or Im

Let’s when you mean Let us (as in Let’s go shopping)

(Note: Lets has two completely different meanings. For example: He lets things slip through his fingers or even An estate agent lets flats to homeless people. So be careful about Let’s and Lets.)


OTHERS

Has, Had, Have and Will, when shortened, lose the first two letters and become ’s ’d ’ve and ’ll. Would loses the first four letters and becomes ’d.

Thus:

Someone’s (Someone has or Someone is)
He’d (He had or He would)
They’ve (They have)
She’ll (She will)



2) Possessives

You also use an apostrophe when something belongs to someone or something (called “Possessivesâ€
