Learn all about English punctuation, with examples and quizzes, in this Adept English podcast all about the basics of grammar in English.  Whether you speak English as a first language or a second language,  proper punctuation matters. Punctuation is the glue that holds written  communications together.
What is punctuation?  Punctuation helps the reader to understand what you are trying to say.  In English, there are many types of punctuation marks, e.g. comma, full  stop (UK), period (US),  semicolon, dash, question mark and exclamation mark. Punctuation helps  the reader to discover the meaning by breaking up sentences and making  it easier for them to read.
To write in English well, you need to understand the basics of punctuation. The full stop is the only punctuation mark that is essential for meaningful communication.  With a full stop, we can show whether we are making a statement or  asking a question. Whether we’re emphasizing a point or showing emotion,  and so on. Without it, it would reduce us to drawing pictures in order to communicate with each other.
Punctuation  is important in English - it breaks phrases and clauses into  understandable bits and pieces. This is true in business and academic  writing, where clarity and professionalism are of the essence. However,  punctuation can be a complex subject which can cause confusion for  people learning English as a foreign language, or studying EFL at  school. Learning English grammar through listening is much easier and quicker.
