    Re: dis

    Welcome to the forum.

    I would expect an English teacher to capitalise 'I' at all times and be able to punctuate two sentences correctly.

    We discuss specific language questions here. We can't help you to conduct a workshop.

    Re: dis

    In addition, "dis" is a meaningless thread title. It's not even an English word.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    I don't know what the OP's intention was, but "dis (also diss)" is slang for "disrespect". The origin appears to be African American Vernacular English.

    I thought the thread was going to be about that meaning!
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: dis

    What is your proposed workshop going to be about? "dis" is not an appropriate title for your question whatever it might mean.
